* PullYourselfDownTheSpear: [[EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep The Captain]] is impaled by a Persian spearman and a couple of [[DualWield sword-wielding]] [[EliteMook Immortals]], but he hacks at the Immortals then pulls himself up the spear to finish off its (at this point terrified) wielder.

* {{Badass}}: The story's goal is to essentially portray the Spartans as the biggest badasses of all human history.

* ShirtlessScene: To put it mildly. Shirts are apparently outlawed for Spartan men. Shirtless Movie would be more accurate. The film actually tones this down from the comic, where Spartans can be seen casually chilling out in the buff. [[TruthInTelevision Which is accurate to real life.]]



* WalkingShirtlessScene: None of the Spartans are wearing very much for the entire movie.

The film version of ''300'' is heavily stylized thanks to both its comic book roots and the story itself presented as a [[UnreliableNarrator morale-boosting story told by Dilios]]. While accurate in some historical aspects (mostly quotes), it is presented first and foremost as a visual Greek epic tale of glory, death, and [[RuleOfCool how battling half naked is strategically superior]]. Trying to justify or explain it is as futile as explaining why [[Film/{{Commando}} Matrix]] [[MST3KMantra should face a court-martial for property damage]]. Think of this as ''SinCity'' (also by FrankMiller) with gold and red instead of white and black… and with far fewer prostitutes.

A sequel film, ''[[Film/ThreeHundredRiseOfAnEmpire 300: Rise of an Empire]]'', was released in March 2014.

'''''300''''' (''Three Hundred'') is a heavily stylized BattleEpic movie directed by ZackSnyder, released in 2007 and [[TheFilmOfTheBook based on]] a 1998 [[ComicBooks comic miniseries]] by FrankMiller. It is [[HistoricalFiction based on real events]]--[[YouShallNotPass the Battle of Thermopylae]] in 480 BC during the [[UsefulNotes/GrecoPersianWars Second Greco-Persian War]], as described by the ancient Greek historian Creator/{{Herodotus}}. Miller was introduced to the Thermopylae story through a 1962 SwordAndSandal movie version called ''Film/The300Spartans'', which influenced him deeply as a child. The comic and film are extreme examples of historical movies being VeryLooselyBasedOnATrueStory, as artistic license is liberally employed (more so in the film than in the comic).

** The dory spear, the primary weapon of Greek hoplites, was NOT thrown. Despite Leonidas and his men shown throwing theirs with ease, the doru spears were too heavy and too long to be thrown. Javelins would have been used instead for throwing, which were shorter and lighter.
