The Movie '300'

Hosted by

The sword and sandal epic 300  was released in 2006. The movie made nearly half a billion dollars worldwide. Not surprisingly, there’s a sequel coming out this weekend. It’s called: 300: Rise of an Empire. 300 is the story of a small army of Greeks -- 300 Spartans actually, or so the myth goes -- who attempted to stop an invading army of Persians back in 480 BC. Of course, the movie isn’t historically accurate. But our producer Matt Holzman wanted to know: what did they get right in the movie, and does it matter?
