Seeing how this movie is based on a graphic novel, raehtr than actual historical story of the battle of Thermopylae, I'm guessing these are some evil Persian warlords and their twisted minions that the ber cool spartan heroes will be fighting. I'm guessing the freakiness is a comic book villain thing. :P I never read the thing though, so your guess is as good as mine. Either way, I wouldn't expect this to be historically accurate in any way. But it looks awesome. a0|a0 http://rmgeyx.com [url=http://zsebknsfliu.com]zsebknsfliu[/url] [link=http://otvhbduxbxl.com]otvhbduxbxl[/link]

I never really<a href="http://ocvzsxf.com"> etpecxed</a> this movie to be true to history especially since it is based on Frank Miller’s comic book. The storyline as well as the look and feel of the movie was really heavily influenced by the drawings in the comic.I think they aimed for being true to the graphic novel version, not the real events so bashing it for not being historically accurate is not really fair.But yeah, I heard that once you take away the special effects, there is not much more to this movie.I haven't seen it yet, so I'll reserve my judgment for later. a0|a0

i didnt read the comic book , but if it was based on that then thats a different thing. Obviously iam a hitorsy buff and would rather see the persian clubbering the spartans as they did in real life. The movie itself was terrible, acting was bad, people were laughing in the theatre. The special affects was pretty good if you are into cgi, i guess like some people fark miller was really obsessed with the Spartans. More of the acting was like shakespeare acting like Alexander another inacurate fars, however collin farrel played the character really well. You cant really make a fiction out of a real event, if it was the event then they could of showed the domination of babylon and Esther who was important biblically married xerxes .correction in the previous blog, how can 300 take on 1million.thats in fantasy land. Again if you are fan of cgi and its effects then you probably will love the film! a0|a0 http://qtgeumigxzb.com [url=http://tqffkkb.com]tqffkkb[/url] [link=http://ggxzxy.com]ggxzxy[/link]

300 was a terrible film,<a href="http://rngfsrbwdy.com"> epxcet</a> for the graphics, its a good if you like xbox and other video games. 300 was pretendtious, nothing was reality in this film. Persian army consist of a multinational states in which even conquored greeks had to fight in the persian army. I am not sure why they had model guys with 8 packs running around representing spartans. That person used as xerxes hardly fit the bil, Xerxes was a long haired and bearded fellow, more of Nordic appearance along with the Persians and the Medians who faught in that war. Another false scene was when the persians declared themselves as gods, persians had a religion they followed which consist of one god. Anyways I think they forgot to also mention that spartan warriors had gay companions and that was exceptable in that time and also after that war Sparta allied with Persia against athens! I think the creator of this film was remaking history. Also, Persian navy had a Viking appreance, thats where the Viking uniform derived from. I guess they didnt want to mention that either, I think they should of just hired more swedish models to play greeks on fantasy island. Oh ya there was no such as greeks, but Sparta, Cornith and Athens who saw themselves as a separate nation. I think more thought and more research should be put in to a movie, i really dont think 300 men can beat 100 though men. Herodotus who was a greek and were we get this information from was criticized for some of his works, he only interviewed greeks and ofcourse most of this information came from exaguration! a0|a0

I've been to modern Sparta (Sparti), and there's no way a place as small as that can hold over 500,000 people.
Tess:

Andy:
The slaves were actually 'helots', and they were the Messinians. The helots were peasants forced to stay on the land they worked. And the Messinians were allowed to keep half of the food they harvested/killed, so technically, they weren't slaves.
Andros:
This is very silly.. And where's the source for that statement?
ephman:
what? that is crazy. pretty dumb 500k. i guess they couldn't count
bob:
now its a hand full of citizens and 6 billion slaves
bob:
well now its a couple thousand citizens and 6 billion slaves
Rabbit:
I like the idea (as long as I'm not one of the slaves) but we don't hear alot about Sparta today, apart from movies, how long did they last in this ideal setup?
Dinos:
Women in ancient Sparta were not countered as slaves. They were free citizens. They owned about 2/5 of the Spartan land due to inheritance law. They used to get married after the age of 20 because there was a law by the founder of the spartan democracy Lycourgos which obliged them to do so in order for them to be mature and feel sexual urged because they believed that children that get concieved during an act of love grow up to be better people. They used to be hard with their male children during war and asked them to return with their shield, or on top it (carried out dead). Once an Athenian asced Gorgo (leonidas wife) queen of Sparta: "How come Spartian women among all women are so strong when facing men? the other replied, -Because we give birth to "real " men"
Roltz:
It's 20 to 1!! not 4 to 1!!
Foo:
thats 4 to 1 citizen!! that's awesome
Datara:
since women can't be citizens in ancient Greek culture, are the women counted as slaves here?
mitchattitude:
Sparta will need sons!
Leonidas:
This is Sparta!!!!
THE-MAN:
Wow..
Wraith:
Madness!
