So I saw it today in Imax.
Most excellent action/historical movie I've seen in a while.
Marvelous work by the director and operator.
Lot of cross references, Xerx (Satan) offering Leonidas( Christ) power in exchange for kneeling to him.
And Leonidas DOES KNEEl. Don't be surprised, the best of us have done it at some point in their life
David (Leonidas) vs Goliath ( Persian monster). Etc etc. Modern day references as well, people dying for freedom. Some scenes were shot like if El Greco had painted them.
- I did not need a fucking "narrator" voice explaining to me what was going on.
- Persian army could be shown more monumental.
Overall, very satisfied. Will certainly go again.
Not a chicks movie unless chicks like a lot of blood on the screen.
