It's sad. So much publicity. Such glorious reviews. And for what? I wish I could coat my downright disgust for this movie in something less obviously antagonistic but there's not much I can do for such a predicable script, overblown special effects-laden, obviously computerized silliness. There was nothing that made me care a second for the underwritten characters, nothing that made me give a damn about the outcome of the battle. The cold philosophy of the Spartans - much remains to be said about it - was shadowed by the obvious glory the makers wanted to bestow upon them. I can't believe Hollywood can still come out with such nonsense in this day and age and even get 50% of audience approval (as seen at least on the IMDb board). I hope this is not the real situation, I hope the reaction to this movie doesn't characterize the bulk of IMDb voters whom I always thought more astute and more clearer-sighted that that.
