gets addicted to sit-ups, becomes King, keeps doing sit-ups. Makes
all of his warriors do sit-ups 5 hours a day minimum, and then 5
hours on the pec deck. Feels that to cover up his manly chest would
be a waste so goes around wearing a cape with his muscular frame
constantly on show. Kills thousands.
panel of critics thought|
at that time in history, the Spartans were naked for much of the
time. They fought naked. Walked about naked. I've seen the statues,
why would they lie? Knowing that, how on earth did they beat to
death people wearing armor?"
Frank Miller anything to do with the beer company?"
aren't the Greeks a hairy people? So, in those times they weren't
or did they wax their chests? I can't remember seeing a single guy
with body hair. I wasn't looking that closely, just I find it strange
that there was not a single one."
I notice a guy with an 8-pack in this movie?"
Even the women have six packs!"
special effects: did they CGI those six packs in or did they actually have to
train up for the role?"
lit homoerotica, I want my money back."
you are wondering what the difference between manliness and homoerotica is then
this movie has the answer,
without any of the usual grunting and fart smells that sentence normally implies."
you know that a good laugh is as good as a sit up?"
just as well they weren't naked. I could foresee multiple Porky's shower room
scene type incidents. Never grab a man's penis in anger is my motto, and I have
seen nothing in this movie to make me change my mind."
tell me the ending or whole plot if necessary
and his men all die in battle, the story is told in the words of one of his soldiers
who was sent home because he was wounded.
The promotional hook for this movie was the fact that all the men had strapping
physiques / 6-packs.
is quite remarkable technically. The picture is superbly and painstakingly comic
book like. However, would you want to go down the pub to have a drink with anyone
in this movie?
