A bit of history: Exactly 2,486 years ago—that’s 480 B.C. for history buffs—300 Spartan soldiers fought toe-to-toe against a million invading Persians. You ask how in the world could 300 fight such a staggering foe? Obviously, they were brave and, well, they really had no choice.

From Sin City wizard Frank Miller comes the epic underdog story 300. Leading the merry men of Sparta, King Leonidas’ stubborn refusal to bow down to the ransacking Persians sets up the epic battle that, in the end, wiped out the entire Spartan force.

This bloodbath flick combines live action with virtual backgrounds capturing Miller’s distinct vision of this historic tale. And frankly, any flick with lines as manly as “Spartans! Enjoy your breakfast, for tonight we dine in hell!” is damn worth the admission price. - B.A. Borleo
