Think about it for a minute!, 10 Jun. 2007
Lots of people are reading far to much into this film first off it is just a simple action film think 80s action like commando and the other brainless action classics good to watch but not to study.
Secondly Frank Millers comic was inspired by the events and is a lot better than this film. Miller has wrote his tale in the same way the Greeks would have told it years after as a pro Greek story of their bravery and ability to beat the odds a good story for inspiring people!.
The biggest problem I have with this film is the director who was also responsible for Dawn of the Dead 2004 which is just a brainless action film nothing like the original,starting to see a pattern now.
So if you just sit back and unplug your brain you will probably love this film but if you want a history lesson read a book on the real battle. And as for the he-men in cloaks look at the greek art of the time!
