300 - You Must Be Xerxes

Posted on: February 16, 2007 | Views: 599 | Comment

Leonidas, the King of Sparta (Gerard Butler), tells Xerxes, the God-King of Persia (Rodrigo Santoro) that, after looking around at the god-king's warriors, he should have sent Spartan women to fight them.

At the pass of Thermopylae in 480 B.C., 300 Spartan soldiers under King Leonidas held off the huge Persian army under Xerxes for a couple of days -- just long enough for the rest of the Greek city states to assemble an army to match the Persians. The Spartans died to a man, but their resistance kept the Greek Peninsula from being overwhelmed by the invaders. Frank Miller based his graphic novel on this famous last stand. Now, here's the movie.
