300

This movie is sooooooo freaking cool!!!! There is a decent amount of nudity in it, so be warned. There is a lot of violence, so also, be warned. It is historically accurate, so the heroes of the story all get slaughtered at the end, so don't expect a Hollywood ending of the good guys winning. It's 300 Spartans against the millions of men in the armies of Xerxes, King of Persia, at the famous Battle of Thermopylae. The Spartans fight bravely and do so much damage against the Persians that it's not even funny (OK, yes, it is -- I had a good laugh at Xerxes), but they don't survive.

Actually, I should say that all the nudity and violence is styled to give everything the desired results. There is some nudity which is designed to gross you out -- and it really does.

In any case, this movie is an excellent movie, very well done, but it is not for the faint of heart, nor the easily-scandalized. If you qualify for either category, do not watch this movie.
