    Time? It's not bloody Lord Of The Rings 15 day extended cut. No, you can quite comfortably watch it in a couple of hours (fast forward through the pointless plot bits, you might not want to watch the sexi tiem bits either).
    Men. Six packs. Sweat. Mini-loincloths. Battle. Moar battle. SPARTAAAAAA!!!
    And some stuff about honour, courage, nobility and ****.

    Srsly, you watch this and I'll cut pizza out of my diet for a whole year month fortnight week.

    I think they were pointing out the fact that the images are of the Spartans were bunch of buffed guys all glistened up, enhanced (and despite the 300 workout articles) and 'roided up but that the enemy was a bunch of "boy lovers".

    Perhaps, but I suspect the source of the reviewer looking for this imagery and focusing on it comes from the modern intellectuals' disdain for fighting and fighing culture, and any movie that does not support their world view on fighting. The fact remains that 2 millenia later people still tell stories of the 300 spartans and their badassery (hence this thread) and that alone pisses some people off (in a snobby intellectual way of course). If there was a 301st Spartan that was a Conscientious Objector Spartan, nobody knows about it and truthfully no one would care.
