So for those people out there who haven't recognized it at all, yes, I do watch movies as brutal as 300. I still remember the first time I watched 300, it was when I was still in junior high school. On one late night when I couldn't sleep, I turned on the TV and tuned in to my favorite channel I knew would have some good watch while I lulled myself to sleep. And there it was, in the middle of the wheat field, standing the oh so great Leonidas and his queen, Gorgo. Taking a quick glance to their outfit, I knew it was based on the Greek history. And oh how could I resist it? The late history of my former country would always be my favorite subject to talk about.
The overall movie is totally incredible. I saw some changes on Queen Gorgo, I was unsure at first when her face showed that the character wasn't played by the same person (somehow I forgot her real name). But she's still as fierce as ever, as strong and independent as ever. And who do we got here? Artemisia. The first time this character showed up in the movie, I knew she was going to be a really touch opponent for Themistocles. I love seeing female characters being the powerful and dominant ones (reminds me of that vampire movie) (which I address more as sex film, yuck). I was totally amazed by the toughness of Artemisia, of how smart and cunning this character is not just by the description, but also by her look. Sharp jawline, high cheekbones, a-look-that-kill eyes, and how she rocks black warrior outfits. There goes my girl, baby! Being the head of the Navy, why am I not surprised she wanted Themistocles as her vice in wars. Honestly I want to see those two collaborating in a war, against Xerxes, of course.
The movie ended with the Spartans deciding to help Themistocles to win over his war against Artemisia (or in this case, the Persians). Artemisia did die in the end, and to had Spartans fight back alongside with the Greek and Themistocles, oh how I really love the cliffhanger... Seriously you guys gotta watch this movie it's really good (you can still feel aware of the usage of the green screen tho), but not that recommended especially for those of you who can't tolerate any brutal actions because this movie has all kinds of that. Blood splattering everywhere I feel like "yuck"-ing my face. But it gives me thrill and if anyone asks me to watch it again I would definitely say yes! 10 stars out of 10!
