any flaws in the movie ?

nay, 300 is an absolutely terrific movie. the attitude, the valour the spartans display send a chill down my spine. so much to keep their honour. they challenged and even demured a person who projected himself as god. i think they were bogged down by the wrong priests who just had no respect for these warriors. my personal favorite line in the movie when the king says : SPARTANS NEVER RETREAT!!!!!!!!!!. the greatest sequence when the king as a young lad fights the beast and also , when he kicks the intruder into the well..

Most of the flaws with the film have to do with what I remember from Junior High, which was a long time ago and maybe history has been revised since then. But my recollection is that the 1. Athenians had to talk the Spartans into joining the fight. 2. The Spartan council did agree to go to war even before Leonidis left, but not send the soldiers until after the festival. 3. This might be my perception, but although the narration was correct in identifying Persia as a part of Asia, but if i didn't know any better, I would have thought they were from Africa. 4. I thought the flamboyancy of Xerxes went way too overboard.
