Captain: They look thirsty!
King Leonidas: Well, let's give them something to drink! To the cliffs!
The line "Come and get them!", said by Leonidas in response to the Persian demand for the Spartans to surrender their weapons, is also a historical quote (according to ancient historian Herodotus), which was adopted as the motto of the Greek Army's 1st Corps. See more...

In the first major battle between the 300 Spartans and the Persians, Leonidas is slaughtering the Persians and the speed of the scene goes from slow motion to fast motion, you see very realistic CGI blood. When the blood hits the the ground it suddenly disappears. This happens many times during this long and awesome scene.
Toward the end of the film, the 300 are in a shell style formation - Leonidas is in front, right before he removes his helmet, drops his spear and shield. It is obvious that the sun is shining on Leonidas and the 300 from behind, toward the ocean. But if you look into Leonidas' eyes you'll see white reflections - these are from reflector screens.
