This is Sparta!
So how does it fit into Imaginary Cinema, you ask, since it's (loosely) based on historical fact? Well, there sure were a ton of freaky looking mutants in it. And Xerxes was the most effeminate-looking villain since Ra in Stargate. I don't think the film is gonna change cinema as we know it, like some people claim. But it sure is nice to look at. It'll be interesting to see what director Zack Snyder does with his next project, an adaptation of Alan Moore's Watchmen.
