Watched 300 with the boyfriend last night.
So yeah, the graphics were computer generated, but it's nice to imagine Spartans really looking like that. Teehee. Their abs moved even as they spoke... drool! (But they trained really hard for the part. Click HERE to read an article about it.)
I read that the oracle scene was filmed underwater so they could get that flowing effect.
It really felt like I watch watching a comic. As much as possible, they really did try to copy the images from the graphic novel.
