I saw 300, so I figured I'd write a not-really-complete review for it.

So ... what concerned me about it (and the reason I declared I wouldn't want to see it initially) was the amount of violence in the movie. After having seen it, I can say that while the violence is there, its necessary, as it serves to complete the picture (pardon the pun).

The visuals of this movie are great; I feel ("feel" meaning I didn't exactly measure this) that about 80% of the scenes in the movie would make great static images (which kind-of makes sense, when you consider it was mostly computer-generated).

Also, the color alterations and usage of narrow depth of field are great and completely change the mood of the movie. This is one of the reasons I think this movie should be seen on a panoramic screen.

The speeches ... well ... If I have something bad to say about the movie, this might be it: some of the dialogs/monologues in the movie sounded stupid (maybe not stupid but a bit artificial) to me, like:

Give them nothing! But take from them everything!
Spartan King Leonidas
Still, overall is not something that stands out.

All in all, the movie was worth my time ...
