The story interests me; however, the trailers make the movie look a bit too "hip," which seems incongruous to the subject matter.

There's a reason it looks like it does; Frank Miller wrote "Sin City" and "300." They are both styled after the look of the graphic novels.


I'm very excited about this one, I just hope they don't actually overuse the slow-motion action scenes in the actual movie like they do in the trailer. Cheap way of making a 75 minute movie last two hours.

Looks like a new way to interpit LOTR. Small group of heros massively outnumbered by their rivals who seem to have a few mutated soldiers.

Frank Miller's story is based loosely on Thermopylae. Of course in his story there are non human creatures. I'm certainly looking forward to it. There should be some great scenes and a body count to die for (pun intended)

Telling that story on film would not require the kind of CGI to be employed in this Frank Miller adaptation...

What a coincidence...


This trailer looks like a comic book/graphic novel if there ever has been one.

CAN'T WAIT!
