Not much in terms of character development and historical accuracy, but that isn't what you're supposed to be looking for when watching it anyway.




Its an important point to make that in terms of accuracy and success of adaptation, it can only be compared to its source material, being the fictional graphic novel by Frank Miller. I love the comic, so if it remains true to that, then i will be a very happy bunny

I found the slow motion kind of annoying after a while




I actually enjoyed that part. Very different from most of the battle scenes I've seen before.

My two big critques of the movie:
  • I don't believe that Greek men would have that little amount of hair on their chests
  • Not enough killing! More bloodshed!!!

    I thought it was great! I'll probably see it again while it's still in theaters. I agree about the speeches that the king gives, very cool.... did you notice every spartan man in the movie had a six pack? even the older men did! It wasn't corny though, it gave the spartan people character, very strong and very hard-working people. I loved it!

    Hated it. Okay...'hate' is a strong word.

    Didn't care for it at all. Lacked character development and believability (one dimensional), and technically relied on effects to replace solid scripting.

    Would have liked a more well rounded story with more history.

    Ok, action movie, believable script and character development...optional, lol. MUST HAVE ACTION AND BLOODSHED! And this had plenty of both. I liked the movie alot. Will it win any oscars, outside of cinematography, probably not. Will it make you wish to be a Spartan, very possibly.
