ko_kyi: The silliest concept in the whole movie was the idea that the Spartans fought for the freedom of all Greeks.

The Spartans were the North Koreans of Greece.  Brutal, fierce, and weird.


Actually they were the America of Greece: proud, violent slave owners who spent all of their money on warfare and ate terrible food.

I've played enough Civilization to know that a phalanx of Hoplites can totally face off against an M1-A1 tank.

GreenOverload: In the original civilization I lost a battleship to a phalanx. It took a good half hour to stop laughing.


I'm not laughing at you. I'm laughing because I would have sent another ship.

Poor 700 Thespians. You dudes acted your way to the final end with the Spartans and nobody gives a damn about your sacrifice.

Haha.

Seriously though, this 'article' is just another marketing gimmick for the upcoming sequel to a movie that should never have had a sequel made for it. I have no illusions that somewhere along the line the production company was involved in the writing of this article.
