Storyline

In the year 480 B.C., the Greeks and the Persians fight one of the most famous battles in history at a place called Thermopylae. Here, the mighty Persian war machine, which has conquered most of the known world, will attempt an expansion into Europe. The only thing standing in their way will be an army led by 300 Spartans, the greatest soldiers the world has ever known. They will fight to the very last man, and in doing so will protect the cradle of democracy during its infancy, and the battle will go down in history as the greatest military stand of all time.

Sensational documentary about Persian and Greece history and focusing the battle of Thermopylae
17 April 2009 | by See all my reviews

This is a magnificent documentary produced by BBC in similar style to ¨Anibal¨, here again are splendidly brought the life the heroics events about the battle of Thermopylae. The deeds(480 B.C) are correctly re-enacted by a plethora of actors and extras, adding background made by computer generator.Every little detail has been given so much attention, as costume, environment and production design. This historic tale completes to enlarge extending the deeds developing in the picture titled ¨300¨(2006) by Zack Snyder, starred by Gerard Butler as Leonidas, and ¨The 300 Spartans¨(1962) by Rudolph Mate with Richard Egan and Ralph Richardson as Themistocles, both movies limit the story to the battle . As ¨The last stand¨ adds the history about kings Persians : Ciro the Great and riots Jonics; king Dario and the battle of Marathon, including the race by Filipides until Athens, the fire of Athens ordered by Xerxes and his imperial body guard of 10.000 immortals, etc... These events aren't exposed in ¨300¨ by Snyder that restricts its filming on the preparation and battle of Thermopylae, the only way to arrive to Athens. The impact of the battle was impressive and the Hellens lost their fear for the Persian conqueror and organized their defense and allowing the Greek city states to create an army to retain the Persians.

Thanks this documentary movie we learn amount knowledges. As of how king Leonidas led a small army called Falange formed by 300 Spartans named Hoplitas and wielding the shield Heplon, plus 700 Thespians, while the soldiers Phocios sent by Leonidas to protect passages to their flanks flee . They hold off an invading Persian army by thousands soldiers, the great historian Heredotus, possibly exaggerating, wrote that they were 1.700.000, commanded by king Xerxes. We also know of how the Athenian leader Themistocles manages as leader by formally placing the Athenas polis under supreme command of Sparta and navigating along strait at Artemisum gets defeat Persian navy . Themistocles commands a large navy formed by ships called Trirremes which vanquish the Persian warships in the battles of Salamian, Platea and Mycala. This phenomenal documentary-movie will like to history and epic events buffs.
