Critical reviews of 300

NPR has a great review on 300 from a historic perspective. Syndicated columnist Victor Davis Hanson offers his take on the stylized account of the battle of Thermopylae, where 300 Spartans held a narrow mountain pass against invading Persians in 480 B.C.

David Edelstein also gives a scathing review of the “computer-generated beef-cake extravaganza”.
