Saw 300 yesterday and it's not too damn bad. Certainly not as poor as some reviews have made out.

The Good:
It is visually stunning. The shot of all the arrows coming towards the men was jaw dropping.
Butler is a very convincing warrior king.
Wenham is awesome as ever.
There's some interesting elements to the story.

The Bad:
Could have done with more story.
You only really got to know one or two of the soldiers well which meant you didn't really give two hoots about them.

In all a gorgeous looking film that was entertaining with some excellent fight scenes and characters. Main problem was some of the plot - there wasn't really enough to fill two hours. It would have been better to have lost one of the fight scenes and spend an extra 10 minutes at the start getting to know some of the soldiers more.
