300 Review

300 Review:
By Katie S.

*** out of 4

300 is an excellent movie that really highlights the strength and violence that defined Spartan life in ancient Greece. What really separated Sparta from other city-states present at the time was their dedication and skill in fighting. From the age of 7 Spartan men were immersed in a world that placed a great importance on being able to fight and defend Sparta.

Although there are some exaggerations (like the overly flamboyant Xerxes) the movie still provides a good historical perspective for those interested in the life and culture of ancient Sparta.
