The film is based on a true story, but it is better than history. The age of the film depends on the language and the graphic effects. The vocabulary is really lively and proud. The effects are unlike any other movie.
The script is no longer given. Let me tell you a little bit about the real situation.
*** 300 or Battle of Thermopylae ***
In August 480 BC, Persian King Xerxes sent 200,000 troops to attack Greece. A huge army of thousands of soldiers came. At that time, the Greeks were living separately in a city state. But when the Persian, the enemy of the whole tribe, went to war, most of the city-states were ready to join forces.
The task of fortifying a Persian garrison advancing from northern Greece to the south from the Thermopylae Valley, a military base, fell to King Leonidas, the leader of Sparta, and his army. Leonidas was ready to defend himself with a small army of 6,000 men. In addition to the original sparrows, his army also included troops from other civilized countries.
Thamorpi is a real valley road about four miles long and only fifty feet wide in narrow places. The enemy has no other way to enter than this valley as it is surrounded by very high mountain walls on each side.
If you enter, you will face the army of Leonidas. This road can only be crossed if the army is completely defeated.
I want to talk a little bit about Leonidas and Sparta. Spartans are specially trained for adventure. Very disciplined. You can eat and live in poverty. Strong in body and mind. When a Spartan was about to go to war, his mother would often bring him a large shield to carry. When he returned, he took the shield and returned. If you can’t handle it, you can come back from the shield.
Return to Mother, victorious in battle.
If he had given his life for the country, I would like to see him return with dignity, carrying his body on a shield and carrying his comrades-in-arms. It means There are still meanings behind the words. When confronted with the enemy on the battlefield, he bravely escaped. He was taken captive and enslaved. That means I do not want to hear. Even mothers have a similar attitude. Therefore, if the sparter is correct, the sword will be injured. I do not want to show the spear wound on my back. Spartans. Take a look. All of their injuries are in the front. Poems are composed.
When they met at Thamorpi, Leonidas and his men blocked the valley road and confronted the oncoming enemy. The Persians were overpopulated, but could not compete with the Spartans in combat. For two days they suffered heavy casualties, but were unable to cross the Greek army.
On the third day, a secret treacherous alley was shown by a Greek traitor, and the enemy came to the rear of the Greek army.
When he saw that he was going to be attacked with great force, Leonidas summoned the officers. The fighting has changed. If we continue in this place, we will all be destroyed.
Therefore, all other troops should withdraw in time. He and 300 Spartan soldiers announced that they would remain on duty at this venue. Many soldiers from other cities left, leaving only 700 of the Spies and 400 of Thebes with sparrows.
As the Persians prepared to cross the mountain from the front to the rear, Leonidas moved his army to a battlefield with a wide open front. Then do not wait for the enemy to advance. We attacked U Aung first. The way the Spartans fought was as if they were determined to defeat the Persian enemy in this match.
If it was decided with courage, it would have been an undefeated defeat for the Persians. But the numbers are vastly different. The Persians were in full force throughout the battlefield. Leonidas was killed in the midst of the sound of swords and spears. The Spartans immediately surrounded the leader, defended him fiercely, and carried the body to a nearby mountain shrine.
This place is surrounded again. All the Spartans fought like their leader until the very end. Thessalonians also fell with Sparta. Only a few Thebes people surrendered. Wars between Greece and Persia continued, and eventually the Persians were defeated and forced to flee Greece.
After the war, only the Southern Spartans were killed A monument was erected there for the fallen soldiers who came to Lay. The inscription reads, “Go tell the spartans, you that passeth by, That here obedient to their laws, we lie.” Please tell the Spartans that we are lying here, obeying the rules of the Spartans. ”
The monument is dedicated to the eternal record of the bravery and self-sacrifice of Leonidas, king of Sparta, who at one time gave his life for the entire Greek nation.
The English author John Ruskin remarked that it was the most glorious collection of words ever uttered by man.
The Battle of Thermopylae is a symbol of Sparta’s bravery, as well as an example of self-sacrifice.
