Funny, the main character Gerard Butler as King Leonidas, just last Friday I watched a horrible movie I recorded on my PVR called Beowulf & Grendel that was released in 2005. Gerard Butler was also in this movie as Beowulf. And low and behold he was in Timeline, Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life and Reign of Fire. I always enjoy this that when somebody hits it big you find out that you've seen them many times before.

And of course good choices for these characters; Vincent Regan from the movie Troy and David Wenham from the last two LOTR movies.

I loved the movie, and they followed history pretty well too (besides the monsters) It'd be nice if they could work on a sequal to fill in the one year between the battle of Thermopylae (300) and finish out the battle where they defeat the Persians with 10,000 Spartans and their allies when they were still out numbered 3 to 1. One of my favorite parts was when Leonidas said "Theres no reason we can't be civil about it" *guy beside him stabs a dying Persian with a spear immediatly after he said that* I laughed my ass off in the theater, no body else seemed to catch on.

It was a great movie. I enjoyed it a lot had to keep my wife awake though. Then we got to see Bridge to Terabithia and that was great as well.
just getting out to see a movie was great first time we have gotten to go out in about 8 months.

i was laughing at the part where the guy got stabbed too! Also did anyone find it kinda random, funny, and awesome that one the 'immortals'(guys with the masks and double swords) did a jumping double leg kick to a spartan in the beginning of the fight??

can't fool you, can they. no sir-ree. you probably already knew that monsters were extinct by the end of the 3rd age and therfore could not have been around during the time of the Spartans.




j/k......they never went extinct, they are just hiding under your bed waiting for the perfect moment to launch an offensive.

Monster??

There was the rhino, the elephants and horses. I didn't see any monsters.

If you're talking about that fat ogre thing, he's just a big fat guy who got his arms stripped of flesh, and his bones chisseled into a blade. THAT just GOT TO HURT!

And then there's the big Persian guy that almost killed Leonidas, but he was just big. Nothing special.
