I saw 300 for the first time a couple of nights ago. I enjoyed it but I think it would have been better without the "monster" aspect to it. Xerxes wasn't 9 feet tall. And I'm not sure rhino's were used in battle. Why make the traitor a deformed hunchback? I guess I was expecting a more historically accurate (if that is possible) movie. I think I like The 300 Spartans made back in 1962 better.
