Between Pan's Labyrinth and 300 I'm fully inspired by movies again! I'm really impressed with this film. I knew it was going to look cool, but I was not expecting to be blown away. The massive Imax screen, seeing it with about 12 of my super good friends and a totally excited audience with people dressed as Spartan's helps, too! The film is simple and linear, but kept me going and my heart beating the entire time. I'm not much of an "official critic," but I dug this film a ton. I can't wait for the DVD so I can watch all the extras and commentary. WOW!
