In the Battle of Thermopylae of 480 BC an alliance of Greek city-states fought the invading Persian army in the mountain pass of Thermopylae. Vastly outnumbered, the Greeks held back the enemy in one of the most famous last stands of history. Persian King Xerxes led a Army of well over 100,000 (Persian king Xerxes before war has about 170,000 army) men to Greece and was confronted by 300 Spartans, 700 Thespians, and 400 Thebans. Xerxes waited for 10 days for King Leonidas to surrender or withdraw but left with no options he pushed forward. After 3 days of battle all the Greeks were killed. The Spartan defeat was not the one expected, as a local shepherd, named Ephialtes, defected to the Persians and informed Xerxes that the separate path through Thermopylae, which the Persians could use to outflank the Greeks, was not as heavily guarded as they thought.Written by
The most bothering thing in a movie is when you know it is nothing more than a big lie!
The most bothering thing in a movie is when you know it is nothing more than a big lie! I was disgusted by the way they have portrayed the Persian People! It may not come as a surprise if I say there is no African-Persian in Iran! so what's it with all the black guys in there?! Apart from the historical misinformation, the movie looks more as a computer game to me. what is wrong with their stomach and stuff?!! seems like the six-packs are glued on their abs! 'cause even when the muscles are relaxed they are still popped out! A fantastic army with all the men having the muscles of the first runners of the bodybuilding contests! Seeing a woman having the control of a man who happens to be the king in the ancient world is not pleasant either. However the movie would be an exciting piece of moving picture for those who are into games and visual effects but at least for me it was not.
