You caught me metal rip, I didn't actually watch the movie, but I saw all the for freedom! for Sparta! watch this movie! stuff, and it's based off of a pomp-ass frank miller comic. I haven't been to a theater in almost a year. I hate period pieces made recently because they butcher history, if not factually, then by misdirected emphases. the main problem I found with the 300, and why I chose not to see it, is that it is a movie based on a comic, not a movie based on an event.
