Storyline

In the Battle of Thermopylae of 480 BC an alliance of Greek city-states fought the invading Persian army in the mountain pass of Thermopylae. Vastly outnumbered, the Greeks held back the enemy in one of the most famous last stands of history. Persian King Xerxes led a Army of well over 100,000 (Persian king Xerxes before war has about 170,000 army) men to Greece and was confronted by 300 Spartans, 700 Thespians, and 400 Thebans. Xerxes waited for 10 days for King Leonidas to surrender or withdraw but left with no options he pushed forward. After 3 days of battle all the Greeks were killed. The Spartan defeat was not the one expected, as a local shepherd, named Ephialtes, defected to the Persians and informed Xerxes that the separate path through Thermopylae, which the Persians could use to outflank the Greeks, was not as heavily guarded as they thought.

You Americans make me wanna cry!
26 October 2008 | by mr9016See all my reviews

I love IMDb. I really do but i must say that i have never felt so betrayed by the database's user comments as those of the movie 300. However, this is not quite true. I did not see this movie because you told me it was great. I saw it because my friend said it was the worst piece of craps he had ever seen and when I saw it, it turned out to be one of the greatest comedy of all time instead of that sentimental war drama it tragically is supposed to be. When I heard that the Iranian government had complains on the movie for insulting the Persians i just thought of them as fundamentalists who doesn't know about freedom of speech. Then i realize that they are not portrayed as bad humans. They are portrayed as disgusting animals! Disgusting creatures high on uranium looking like something from the bad guys in The lord of the rings. I just wanna tell you guys in the U.S that in Sweden this is considered a comedy and if that is what it is supposed to be. Please tell me, because i can not believe that people that name the godfather as one of the greatest movie of all time can give this crap nearly an 8. I am telling you guys that this is madness and that horrible thing on the screen is not Sparta!
