Storyline

In the Battle of Thermopylae of 480 BC an alliance of Greek city-states fought the invading Persian army in the mountain pass of Thermopylae. Vastly outnumbered, the Greeks held back the enemy in one of the most famous last stands of history. Persian King Xerxes led a Army of well over 100,000 (Persian king Xerxes before war has about 170,000 army) men to Greece and was confronted by 300 Spartans, 700 Thespians, and 400 Thebans. Xerxes waited for 10 days for King Leonidas to surrender or withdraw but left with no options he pushed forward. After 3 days of battle all the Greeks were killed. The Spartan defeat was not the one expected, as a local shepherd, named Ephialtes, defected to the Persians and informed Xerxes that the separate path through Thermopylae, which the Persians could use to outflank the Greeks, was not as heavily guarded as they thought.

Goofs

The people who live in Greece now resemble the people who lived there during the time of the Spartans. Most have and had olive or light brown skin, dark eyes and dark hair given the extensive exposure to the sun that comes with living in the region. There would be very blondes in their society as this genetic trait was not prevalent in that region during that era. See more »

Just bunch of lies about the True History and Historical Characters...
9 January 2009 | by See all my reviews

Just put away some reviews that says: "See this movie as an entertainment , not as a political stuff". Tell me, how can somebody lie about history and the great persons in History and you just sit there and laugh and say: "Oh, what an entertaining stuff"? It is very annoying and offending. they spend so much money just to cover the lack of art and creativity in this movie and not just one of them looks good to the persons who saw "The Lord of the Rings Trilogy" or "Gladiator". we can't even compare them to 300. they were masterpieces. the funny thing about this movie is, no one can even understand or believe the movie or let say: when you are watching this movie, you can't put yourself in spartan's shoes and you don't give a damn what is going to happen to them in next scene of the movie!!! ant I think it is a disaster and I say one more time, it's annoying, all lies, all pretending, ... When you see "Life Of Brian" or "Temptation of Christ" and you feel good, then I can see 300 and do the same. Xerexes was the grandson of Syrus The Great and Darius The Glorious and you may know that Cyrus was the person who wrote and settled the first Laws for human kind and before that every one in the whole world lived like barbarians. The Original of this Masterpiece (Cyrus,s Law) now keeps in United Nation in NewYork as the sign of human development for everyone to see the greatness of Persian Empire and past Prestiege of this race.
