Yes the film is based on an actual event in history, The Battle of Thermoylae 480 B.C. The proportions of the army numbers is incorrect though, however many historians have made the same mistake. Much of what we know is based on the writings of Herodotus but he himself was not at the battle. The best estimate of the Greek/ Peloponnesian force is as follows - the Spartan King, Leonidas and his body guard of 300, 500 Mantineans, 500 Tegeans, 400 Corinthians, 200 warriors from Phlius, 120 Orchomeneans, 80 Mycenaeans and 1000 Arcadians. This amounts to 3,100 warriors, which is less than the commonly accepted total of 4,000, however, the difference of 900 is most likely to be the emancipated Helots who accompanied the Spartiates in the ratio of 3 to 1. This would account for the 4,000 Peloponnesian warriors, to which Herodotus records another 700 from Thespiae and another 400 from Thebes. The historian Diodorus also stated that a 1,000 Locrians and another 1,000 from Phokis increased the ranks to approximately 7,100 Greek warriors. Now as far as the Persian army is concerned, therein lies the greatest dispute. How was it feasible for Xerxes to amass an army of 2.1 million which consisted of infantry, cavalry, charioteers, Thracians, etc.? The logistics (water, food, etc.) alone show that it was highly improbable in coordinating the mass movement of troops through Asia & Africa into Greece. Perhaps the most plausible theory as to the size and composition of the Persian army can be found in Peter Green's book 'Xerxes at Salamis' which was later retitled as 'The Greco-Persian Wars'. In his book, Professor Green notes that "The Persian command structure operated - at least, up to corps level - on the decimal system." It is possible that Herodotus inadvertently recorded the strength of the Persian army by tenfold since he was not present to witness the events of 480 B.C. therefore, he had to rely on the narratives of others which may account for the exaggerated numbers. Instead of 2,100,000 combatants in the Persian army, this number could have translated to 210,000 warriors. This would be a more realistic number, however, it still should be emphasized that the Persian army overwhelmingly outnumbered the Greek garrison led by King Leonidas and his 300 Spartans. The size of the Persian army has perplexed historians and scholars alike and it continues to this day. Since the numbers of men amassed by Xerxes for the invasion of Greece are impossible to quantify with any certainty, a range is probably the best way to assign a number. In A.J. Munro's 'Some Observations of the Persian War' which was published in 1902, Munro stated that the six generals of the Persian army each had 60,000 men under their command. Therefore, the generals, Mardonius, Tritantaechmes, Smerdomenes, Masistes, Gergis and Megabyzus had 360,000 infantry and calvary amongst them, however, this does not include the 10,000 Immortals/Companions commanded by Hydarnes. On the other hand Julius Beloch believes that the number is as low as 60,000, therefore, the numbers which historian Peter Green calculated as 210,000 men in his book 'The Greco-Persian Wars' appear to be the most credible.

Apparently no one has ever seen an older movie. Very good movie 8/10. I also love watching movies that aren't 80-100% C.G.I. I would also like to know how anyone in their right mind could compare a Historical movie with Sci-Fi?

'300' was supposed to be based on the published comic book verison of this event, a more fantasy-based comic that came out before that actual film with creative license; it wasn't made to mirror the actual historical event or "go off it." With that being considered, these two movies are incomparable, as the subject matters were the same, but the goals/worlds were different, so they're just not in the same vein to me. I like them both for separate reasons.

It is really not that bad considering when it was made. I think people are too hard on it, I mean it was made in '62 so how can you compare it to the movie "300" which was made 45 years later? Of course 300 is better!
