''300'' (''Three Hundred'') is a heavily stylized BattleEpic movie directed by Creator/ZackSnyder, released in 2007 and [[TheFilmOfTheBook based on]] a 1998 [[ComicBooks comic miniseries]] by Creator/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).

* FanDisservice: The oracle dances around with only very small amounts of clothing on, and said clothing is completely see-through anyway. She's also about 12 years old, and being licked by lustful old men.

* EqualOpportunityEvil: The legions of Xerxes are from all over the world (including Africa and Japan, apparently), and he even hires hunchbacks, which is TruthInTelevision, as the Persians had territory in the Middle East, parts of India (or at least Pakistan), and also ruled part of North Africa. The Greeks, however, were all… Greek.

* OneLiner: Plenty. Stelios's "Then we shall fight in the shade," Leonidas's "This is SPARTA!", "Tonight we dine in Hell!", and "Come and get them!" The narrator Delios receives a slightly more subtle joke: When asked about his one eye, he replies, "It's only an eye. The gods saw fit to grant me a spare." Probably the most obvious one is Leonidas's comment that "There's no reason we can't be civilized" as his men butcher their wounded enemies. Spartans were expected to be able to express themselves in a concise, forceful and witty manner, which is where we get "[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laconic_humour Laconic humour]]."

** There's a particular shot with Leonidas naked from behind, which means you can see his butt.
