Best Greek movie of our time!
19 October 2009 | by (Athens, Greece) – See all my reviews

First of all CONGRATULATIONS for the fact that when they were in Ancient Greece the spoke ANCIENT Greek! How am i supposed to follow a film when Alexander the Great instead of speaking Ancient Greek speaks English? This movie contains many laughs, many laughs with catchy phrases in Ancient Greek, or in Modern Greek and a lot of splatter laughs. So this is what this movie is about, SPLATTER COMEDY! You are not supposed to be frightened. The direction is awesome, fast camera, zoom-in and zoom-out many times makes your eyes stuck into the screen. The visual effects are very real, Ancient Athens looked very real and i loved seeing the Parthenon on the background. The plot was a bit shallow but who cares? This movie is a splatter comedy/parody and it's a fantastic one. From the fight scenes in Ancient Greece where a fighter licked the sword to the point where Kleanthis smashed a head with his hand. Absolute must-see for a marvelous comedy with tons of blood and many zombies!!! p.s. Billy Zane thanks for speaking Ancient Greek, for a real Greek you should be proud! p.s. 2 No actor (including Zane) and no zombie (i also was a volunteer zombie) took ANY money for this film!
