Review: Wow, simply amazing. I read in the paper this week that this movie had too much CGI and was just flat out bad. Rubbish! (Yes, I just said rubbish…) This one was great. There was a lot of CGI, but not enough to make it not good. There was a little prequel to the action, but it didn’t take long for it to get gory. The side-plot (other than the fighting) was just as intriguing. There have only been a few movies in the past year or two that have left me with a sense of awe and saying “Wow, that was a really good movie.” There have been a lot that have been pretty good, but this one is right up in the top. I’d say it is a little much for people that aren’t into gory fight scenes, but if you like a great story and some awesome action shots – as well as some great uplifting speeches – go see 300, NOW.
