Although I have not read the 300 graphic novel and have read only a handful of graphic novels in my life, I'd say the movie probably does a pretty good job of capturing the feel of that genre (and presumably the specific gn on which it was based), both in visual style and narrative flow. Whether that's good or bad you can decide for yourselves. Final point: Lena Headey, who plays Leonidas' Queen, is quite lovely. I don't believe I'd seen her in anything before.
