With the sequel on the way, and Zack Snyder now prepping Batman vs. Superman, it’s a fine time to look back at the action flick that made Snyder a household name. This. Is. Sparta!

Though it comes off as a bit gimmicky now, Snyder’s 300 remains one of the most brutally awesome action flicks ever conceived. Once the insanity starts, it keeps coming. It just doesn’t stop. But that doesn't mean it's perfect. Not by a long shot.

So what’d we learn from Screen Junkies’ new honest trailer? For one thing, we never realized Leonidas yelled so much, and they hit Xerxes right on the head. Seriously, that dude is super-creepy. So, while you get ready to see Rise of an Empire on March 7, relive the cheesy-but-awesome original right here.
