    Only purchase 300 on Blu-Ray, Puck. It's all style over substance, and IMO, isn't all that entertaining at all; there are PLENTY (and I mean plenty) of better action movies out there. However, some people really love it, so you migh tas well check it out...

    Or, you could spend $30 instead on the highly underrated Apocalypto on Blu-Ray. Great movie and much more intense IMO, without all the style.

    I've wanted to see Apocolypto for quite some time
    I'm somewhat of a Mayan civilization fan ..... 2012, anyone?

    anyway, I had a free movie voucher and was going to use it on Apocolypto or Pan's Labyrinth ... I chose Pan's .... good movie, but was a little put off by the all spanish dub .... then I find out that Apocolypto is the same way...so i'm skipping it for now
    I hear it's beautiful, and I like beautiful
    maybe, we'll get it next in our BlockbusterOnline program
    blu-ray in the mail ... sweet

    Excellent movie, but not for everyone
    It is a dark and sometimes brutal fairy tale for adults
    I was originally disappointed in the Spanish dub, but the language proved more theatrical than if it'd been spoken in English
    the direction and editing were some of the best I've seen in years

    a truly unique movie with elements rarely experienced in film. if you engage this movie without expectations, you're bound to be treated to an entertainment experience that you may never forget

    Apocalypto is great. It's a little bit popcorn but it's on a massive scale and it's definitely "edge of your seat" from start to finish..
    I prefer subtitles to dub or "phoney english" for a movie like this.

    I found it to be a very over-rated movie. I just didn't see what all the fuss was about. It's good, don't get me wrong. It's just not up there with the best in my opinion.

    But it is Artsy, I will agree to that.
