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.

The battle was great, the documentary boring.
22 May 2007 | by See all my reviews

I really despise documentaries that repeat over and over again the same information, then the break for publicity, then summarizing the information repeated before. The actors in the reenactment were very well chosen, the historians charismatic, the graphics OK, but the information could have been gathered in a few pages. Therefore I rate this movie below average.

But the battle was pretty amazing. There wasn't only a heroic component, but also a naval battle, a great Greek strategist (Themistocles), the burning of Athens and another naval battle.

As an easy documentary, it's OK, but the repetition of information makes it annoying.
