I saw the movie and don't feel that their outrage is justified at all. It's a movie, for heaven's sake! Plus I seriously doubt the majority of the public is educated enough to equate Persians with Iranians so they'll never know the difference LOL Seriously though, in the past there have been movies depicting white slave owners as cruel, brutish, inbred, ignorant, idiots. It simply played up the great injustice of slavery! One of my favorite movies of all time is Blazing Saddles and they go out of their way to make white people look like idiots while the only truly intelligent characters are the black hero and his white sidekick! ILANEDRI, I just signed on yesterday myself so thanks for taking the time to explain so much about myLot!

300, Frank Miller's graphic novel turned cinematic dynamo, is a blood-red splash of awesome visuals, deliciously rendered quasi-history, and a compelling look at how features of character and plot not overly fleshed out in dialogue can be expressed through theatrical use of symbolism, i.e. Sparta's legion of abs and the Godking Xerxes' inhuman height. Through emphasis on setting and physical features, how does this film let you relate to its story and players, and furthermore, how do superficial details represent unexplored character traits in us and our contemporary surroundings?
