It makes me scream in the first minute. Before the credits. The narrator says that these brave men fought for freedom for themselves and for US.
Because, yes, I see Xerxes men even now trying to take over the world.
And the Spartans? Not precisely the model of 'freedom-loving' people. Their society was built on the invasion, conquest, and utter subjugation and enslavement by one group (Dorians) of another group of Greeks (Achaeans), who were then made 'helots', land-slaves subject to continual ongoing terror attacks by the Spartan youth-in-training, killed if they even looked like they might consider protesting, and generally treated in a less-than-free way. There's a couple of fair but shallow articles about the place on Wikipedia.
Nor did the Spartans have a queen, as shown in the movie. They had two kings.
But its the music and the dialogue that make me yell at this thing.
