beyond all discussions.... a bad movie
I must admit it's my first review for IMDb, and if I write it it's because it was the first movie in a long long time that made me laugh of how lame it was. I had read mostly good reviews of it and I went to the cinema with high expectations, so I was really surprised to notice how childish it actually is. Most of the discussions here focus on the historical accuracy of the film. Well, it's based on a comic book, that's not the point. If i think it was bad it's plain and simply because the script and the storyline seem to be written by a five year-old boy a bit obsessed with violence. It's full of clichés, empty words repeated a million times before (braveheart, for instance) pretending to sound epic, one-dimensional characters, absolutely predictable situations and ending and so on. Yeah, I know it primarily intends to entertain and it is not supposed to be profound, but all reasons explained above make it laughable, not entertaining. And well, about if it is fascist and racist, yeah, it is, absolutely. I just couldn't believe all the nazi admiration for the superior spartan race and how amazingly the movie fitted with the situation of America in the war in middle east (america=spartan=freedom, asians=persians=vicious, gay, bomb terrorists,enemies of freedom). But it was also so childishly told that it made me and my friends laugh really hard instead of getting angry. It's not a bad movie because of that. It's just a bad movie in all concepts.
