The 300 Spartans

 (1962)

The 300 Spartans Blu-ray offers solid video and great audio in this fan-pleasing Blu-ray release

Essentially true story of how Spartan king Leonidas led an extremely small army of Greek Soldiers (300 of them his personal body guards from Sparta) to hold off an invading Persian army now thought to have numbered 250,000. The actual heroism of those who stood (and ultimately died) with Leonidas helped shape the course of Western Civilization, allowing the Greek city states time to organize an army which repelled the Persians. Set in 480 BC.

For more about The 300 Spartans and the The 300 Spartans Blu-ray release, see the The 300 Spartans Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.0 out of 5.

The 300 Spartans Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

The 300 Spartans is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 2.35:1. Unfortunately time has not been very kind to the elements used for this transfer, to the point that at times anyway I actually wondered if the typical interpositive had actually been used. While damage is actually negligible, colors have faded in expected ways, with flesh tones looking rather brown, blues and (especially) purples decidedly anemic and reds tipping toward the orange side of things. The film also is almost shockingly soft and gritty looking at times, especially in wide shots, where people often become little more than blobs of (faded) color. This is especially ironic in that the film appears to have been digitally sharpened, resulting in minor but still noticeable ringing. Still, things are certainly watchable here, and Geoffrey Unsworth's cinematography is one of the film's chief assets.


The 300 Spartans Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

The 300 Spartans' lossless DTS-HD Master Audio Mono track sounds fine as far as it goes, though many will probably be wishing a more forceful track had been repurposed for Blu-ray. Dialogue is very cleanly presented (though there is a huge variety of accents running rampant throughout the film). Manos Hadjidakis, who had just won an Oscar for Never on Sunday, contributes an occasionally colorful but often anachronistic score that sounds too weirdly contemporary, almost like a modern day bouzouki band at times, to really totally mesh with the film's setting.
