Meet the Spartans

2008 seems to be the year of the comedic "take-offs" and Meet the Spartans is another one of those movies that takes the Mickey out of "series" action movies with the main theme of this title being that of "The 300".

Although the theme is Meet the Spartans, the film literally pays homage to a wide variety of pop culture preferences from Britney Spears to Paris Hilton in some extremely hilarious scenes.

The story revolves around Leonidas, the King of Sparta and when his kingdom is challenged by the Xerxes, an earth-bound godlike entity, he is forced to recruit Spartaís greatest 300Ö err 13 warriors who are a true band of bumbling misfits and himbos.

Although the story may be quite forced and contrived at times, it successfully rip-offs from the Transformers to Casino Royale which is quite amusing and really helps spice up that may have been quite a bland movie.

With that said, many of the gags were quite bad but it features some great memorable moments from Kevin Sorbo (Hercules: The Legendary Journey) and Ken Davitian (Borat) that is still making me smile as I write this review.

Presented in an aspect ratio of 16:9 widescreen with Dolby Digital 5.1, the DVD version features some unseen footage, a great gag-reel and also some behind the scene featurettes. Itís forced, itís contrived and entertaining that is definitely for those viewers who enjoyed the Scary Movies franchise.

Special Features:
  • 2 Featurettes
  • Cast and Crew Commentary
  • Gag Reel Outtakes
  • The Music (8 Songs)
  • Know Your Spartans Pop Culture - Set Top Trivia Game
