Wow. A lot of love and some intense hate for this one.

Anybody who rates this high is a die-hard MST fan who is simply and purely in deep, deep denial.  This was a horrible, thrown together riff that is actually more painful to listen to than watching the actual movie (which I believe is the exact opposite of what the riffs are made to do).  The whole point of rifftrax and MST is for Mike and his friends to sound witty and hilarious while watching bad movies.  This made them sound stupid and made me want to slap Kevin Murphy for not having one joke worth laughing at in the whole movie (he obviously would disagree since he laughed more through the movie than his audience).  I love Mike, he is hilarious...but if he slaps another piece of sh@t on this site like 300 I probably won't buy another rifftrax.  He obviously knows what is funny, this was rushed and horrible.

Stick to movies that deserve riffing (dennis quaid quality movies) and you can't go wrong.  Shame on Mike and the gang for producing this god-awful waste of time and money.

Jeez, I hope you are using hyperbole to prove a point.  That you are trying to be over the top, because 300 was funny.  No need for the acid bath.  If you don't want to get Rifftrax anymore don't.  Nobody really cares.

I really liked this one.  The movie was interesting to me personally since I like graphic novels and the sword and sandal genre.  It was also overacted so rich fodder for Mike, Bill and Kevin.  This one kept me laughing all the way through.  Great Trax  :clap:

I gave it a 7, for the continuous chuckle I got from it, plus a few big laughs, but not the best out there.

Still, I'll take a Rifftrax with the three mighty riffers over just about any comedy in theaters at ANY GIVEN TIME!!!

7.

Like some other longer movies, this is a tough one to sit through and there are a good number of duds to stretch out the whole length, but there was still a lot of great material in here.  The guys are at their best during the battle scenes and the queen's stupid subplot, but they made the same jokes about Xerxes that everyone else has been doing, so they could have been a little more creative there.  This was a great movie for riffing, and I enjoyed it a lot.

I gave it a 9.  I watched 300 when it came out on dvd, and wasn't impressed.  The riffing made it much, much better.

9 here, very close to 10.  One of the riffs I end up watching many times over.

I gave this one a 9. It took a bit to really get going, but when it did there was some hilarious ones. All the various 'This is Sparta!' jokes were great, though my favorite joke was probably the Red Rover one (love that one so much :D). It was also nice to see that the gay jokes were kept to a good level (as opposed to making them the basis for every single joke, as others have done).

9 out of 10. 300 definitely deserves a good riff. It helps that said riff was hilarious. The Ann Coulter line was great.

This movie was painfully bad. And the rifftrax was impossibly good.
Whoever wrote this one is a genius.

With this I do agree.

My favorite riff, "Oh come on, there's bleeding and then there's just plain showing off!"
I howled throughout the whole thing! 10/10 My favorite rifftrax so far.

I'm actually on the not-troll's side on this one. It didn't have stupid podracing jokes and only a minimum of "please kill me now," but it didn't have the continuous string of guffaws. Much like the Matrix commenter who noted he ending up being wrapped up in the film rather than the commentary, I found myself more annoyed than entertained by many of the jokes. Weak track.

That said, RiffTrax is like Pixar: there's so much great stuff coming out from these guys that their worst is still relatively respectable, and better than any competitors. The Bug's Life, the worst Pixar movie, is about as good as Happy Feet, the best non-Pixar animation from the same period.\\

Considering the average RiffTrax is absolutely hilarious --- see: the first 45 minutes of D War: Dragon Wars or the whole of Matrix Reloaded --- and this was merely sort of funny, I'd have to give this RiffTrax a solid D. I restrain myself from adding a minus.
Average RiffTrax earn a C.
