I have a lukewarm view of 300. It wasn't was fun to watch but not overly exceptional. And it was different, have to give kudos for that part of it.
The thing was, I didnt care that it really didnt have an intense plot but I just didn't think the action sequences were that exciting or something we haven't seen before. Except, every sequence used slow animation.
They were trying to be different in a matrix kind of way. It didn't reach that level. But it was better than your typical action movie.
If you want to see bad ass action sequences, watch this movie.
- Different kind of movie
- Stylized (like the fact that most of the enemy had on some kind of mask)
- Narration fit well into the movie
- Main actor did a good job, fit into the role
Bad (ignoring any discussion on plot):
- Action wasn't that intense, got boring after a while
- Only one hot woman in the film (actually, 1.5)
- All dark people are bad (they tear up on dark skinned people, may be offensive to some)
- Enemy doesn't really fight back (no Matrix type standoffs)
