This is an interesting interpretation of the 300 Spartans, although not entirely historically accurate. It is entertaining to watch, and has amazing fight sequences. This movie is a complete bloodbath, the entire second half of the movie is filled with non-stop bloody, gory, battles. Decapitations, impalement, etc... quite a bit of which is shown in slow-motion. Blood is literally everywhere, I cannot emphasize enough, how incredibly violent this film is. As for Sex, there are some very explicit scenes with that as well. Including a rather extended scene between King Leonidas and his wife. The "Oracle's" breasts are seen briefly. And there is a very disturbing scene in the Xerxes tent. It is pretty much an orgy filled with naked women kissing and having sex.
Not much language in this film, so not too bad in that regard.
All in all, this is an entertaining representation of a classic plot. Obviously, NOT FOR KIDS. It should be alright for most older teens.
What other families should know
Too much violence
Too much sex
