My wife and I saw this over the weekend at our local 2K DLP digital theater. All I can say is "WOW".
This was quite a visually stunning movie. It's not quite like anything you've ever seen before. And as much as I liked this movie (which was a lot), my wife liked it even more. She was totally engrossed by the cinematography (she's a photographer, so go figure).
All I can say is, if you are looking for an accurate documentary about the story of the 300 Spartans agains the armies of Persia, move along. This ain't it, nor was it ever meant to be.
However, if you want to see a highly modern, extremely stylized interpretation of an historical event, then this is for you. This truly is a live action graphic novel. The story is told almost exclusively through the use of it's stunning visuals, and it is done very well.
