300 (2007)

The storyline is simple, but the visual is a revolutionary breakthrough. It’s very rare to find a movie that could deliver such a new acceptable method. Last time, we were amazed by ”The Matrix” (1999). Apparently, it seems that thiz style of movie-making will be followed by other movies in the future. “300” is based on noir comic which is written by Frank Miller. Miller’s creations are always filled by dark aspect, blood and beautiful battle. Miller is also known as the mastermind of “Sin City” (2005) and Batman’s ”The Dark Knight” (2008). The movie is directed by Zack Snyder. Snyder is success to combine his imagination with the latest Special Effects. The result is amazing. The movie looks like one painted potrayal by professional painter. The lighting and shadowing are mesmerizing. The movie is starred by mediocre performers such as Gerard Butler, Lena Headey, Dominic West, David Wenham and Michael Fassbender. I think the plot is based on recent issue. It’s about Rome Spartans defends from Persian’s aggression. Indirectly, it reflects on 9/11 incident but it is told in reverse. Anyway, thiz could be just a coincidence. The ending (Spoiler Alert!), King Leonidas and his 300 warriors died in the battle. But I very much understand the essence. The essence is about the struggling which is more divine than the victory itself. The movie like thiz always has a similar end, for example “Braveheart” (1995), “The Messenger: The Story of Joan of Arc” (1999), “Gladiator” (2000) and other similar movies. The hero has always died in the battle. Principally, those movies emphasize what we remember most from a hero will always be his struggling.

Stars : 8/10

  1. I know that this movie isn't supposed to be historically accurate, it's just telling a story. I love a good action movie, even when they lack story, but this is just too much.
