I liked it too, no academy awards, and everyone had "6-pack" abs, but great fight scenes.

I liked it! The plot could have used some more development IMO, and I'm a fan of more historical accuracy... but the gratuitous violence made it all worth it. Great fight scenes. And at least there was one strong female character...

The idea of a hairless leader is simply to much to bear. Add to that the fact that Xerxes failed to deny the Holocaust... who can blame them?
