  1. 1
  2. 00:01:09,444 --> 00:01:11,987
  3. When the boy was born...
  4.  
  5. 2
  6. 00:01:12,822 --> 00:01:14,948
  7. like all Spartans, he was inspected.
  8.  
  9. 3
  10. 00:01:16,743 --> 00:01:21,371
  11. If he'd been small or puny
  12. or sickly or misshapen...
  13.  
  14. 4
  15. 00:01:21,539 --> 00:01:23,874
  16. he would have been discarded.
  17.  
  18. 5
  19. 00:01:31,007 --> 00:01:36,678
  20. From the time he could stand,
  21. he was baptized in the fire of combat.
  22.  
  23. 6
  24. 00:01:58,743 --> 00:02:02,412
  25. Taught never to retreat,
  26. never to surrender.
  27.  
  28. 7
  29. 00:02:02,580 --> 00:02:07,459
  30. Taught that death on the battlefield
  31. in service to Sparta...
  32.  
  33. 8
  34. 00:02:07,669 --> 00:02:10,963
  35. was the greatest glory
  36. he could achieve in his life.
  37.  
  38. 9
  39. 00:02:26,104 --> 00:02:30,649
  40. At age 7, as is customary in Sparta...
  41.  
  42. 10
  43. 00:02:30,817 --> 00:02:35,904
  44. the boy was taken from his mother
  45. and plunged into a world of violence.
  46.  
  47. 11
  48. 00:02:37,240 --> 00:02:41,326
  49. Manufactured by 300 years
  50. of Spartan warrior society...
  51.  
  52. 12
  53. 00:02:42,370 --> 00:02:46,665
  54. to create the finest soldiers
  55. the world has ever known.
  56.  
  57. 13
  58. 00:02:46,833 --> 00:02:51,420
  59. The agoge, as it's called,
  60. forces the boy to fight.
  61.  
  62. 14
  63. 00:02:51,588 --> 00:02:55,215
  64. Starves them, forces them to steal...
  65.  
  66. 15
  67. 00:02:55,383 --> 00:02:59,761
  68. and if necessary, to kill.
  69.  
  70. 16
  71. 00:03:00,805 --> 00:03:03,807
  72. By rod and lash the boy was punished...
  73.  
  74. 17
  75. 00:03:03,975 --> 00:03:07,269
  76. taught to show no pain, no mercy.
  77.  
  78. 18
  79. 00:03:08,980 --> 00:03:12,482
  80. Constantly tested, tossed into the wild.
  81.  
  82. 19
  83. 00:03:12,650 --> 00:03:17,946
  84. Left to pit his wits and will
  85. against nature's fury.
  86.  
  87. 20
  88. 00:03:18,323 --> 00:03:20,532
  89. It was his initiation...
  90.  
  91. 21
  92. 00:03:20,700 --> 00:03:23,285
  93. his time in the wild...
  94.  
  95. 22
  96. 00:03:23,453 --> 00:03:27,956
  97. for he would return to his people
  98. a Spartan...
  99.  
  100. 23
  101. 00:03:28,124 --> 00:03:30,250
  102. or not at all.
  103.  
  104. 24
  105. 00:03:52,565 --> 00:03:55,442
  106. The wolf begins to circle the boy.
  107.  
  108. 25
  109. 00:03:55,610 --> 00:03:58,028
  110. Claws of black steel...
  111.  
  112. 26
  113. 00:03:58,196 --> 00:04:00,447
  114. fur as dark night.
  115.  
  116. 27
  117. 00:04:00,949 --> 00:04:02,282
  118. Eyes glowing red...
  119.  
  120. 28
  121. 00:04:02,450 --> 00:04:06,370
  122. jewels from the pit of hell itself.
  123.  
  124. 29
  125. 00:04:15,129 --> 00:04:19,132
  126. The giant wolf sniffing...
  127.  
  128. 30
  129. 00:04:19,300 --> 00:04:22,344
  130. savoring the scent of the meal to come.
  131.  
  132. 31
  133. 00:04:46,536 --> 00:04:48,036
  134. It's not fear that grips him...
  135.  
  136. 32
  137. 00:04:48,663 --> 00:04:51,832
  138. only a heightened sense of things.
  139.  
  140. 33
  141. 00:04:52,166 --> 00:04:55,544
  142. The cold air in his lungs.
  143.  
  144. 34
  145. 00:04:56,087 --> 00:04:59,423
  146. Windswept pines
  147. moving against the coming night.
  148.  
  149. 35
  150. 00:05:07,432 --> 00:05:09,850
  151. His hands are steady.
  152.  
  153. 36
  154. 00:05:10,018 --> 00:05:12,269
  155. His form...
  156.  
  157. 37
  158. 00:05:12,437 --> 00:05:14,563
  159. perfect.
  160.  
  161. 38
  162. 00:05:40,340 --> 00:05:43,091
  163. And so the boy, given up for dead...
  164.  
  165. 39
  166. 00:05:43,259 --> 00:05:47,971
  167. returns to his people,
  168. to sacred Sparta, a king!
  169.  
  170. 40
  171. 00:05:48,431 --> 00:05:50,932
  172. Our king, Leonidas!
  173.  
  174. 41
  175. 00:05:58,066 --> 00:06:01,818
  176. It's been more than 30 years
  177. since the wolf and the winter cold.
  178.  
  179. 42
  180. 00:06:03,237 --> 00:06:07,532
  181. And now, as then, a beast approaches.
  182.  
  183. 43
  184. 00:06:07,700 --> 00:06:12,621
  185. Patient and confident,
  186. savoring the meal to come.
  187.  
  188. 44
  189. 00:06:13,289 --> 00:06:16,583
  190. But this beast
  191. is made of men and horses...
  192.  
  193. 45
  194. 00:06:16,751 --> 00:06:19,544
  195. swords and spears.
  196.  
  197. 46
  198. 00:06:19,754 --> 00:06:24,716
  199. An army of slaves, vast beyond imagining,
  200. ready to devour tiny Greece.
  201.  
  202. 47
  203. 00:06:25,051 --> 00:06:29,805
  204. Ready to snuff out the world's
  205. one hope for reason and justice.
  206.  
  207. 48
  208. 00:06:32,558 --> 00:06:35,310
  209. A beast approaches...
  210.  
  211. 49
  212. 00:06:38,106 --> 00:06:43,652
  213. and it was King Leonidas himself
  214. who provoked it.
  215.  
  216. 50
  217. 00:07:54,265 --> 00:07:55,265
  218. That's it.
  219.  
  220. 51
  221. 00:07:56,601 --> 00:08:01,313
  222. Now, the more you sweat
  223. here, the less you'll bleed in battle.
  224.  
  225. 52
  226. 00:08:02,523 --> 00:08:04,983
  227. My father taught me...
  228.  
  229. 53
  230. 00:08:05,151 --> 00:08:07,611
  231. that fear is always a constant.
  232.  
  233. 54
  234. 00:08:07,778 --> 00:08:09,321
  235. But accepting it...
  236.  
  237. 55
  238. 00:08:09,697 --> 00:08:10,822
  239. makes you stronger.
  240.  
  241. 56
  242. 00:08:10,990 --> 00:08:12,365
  243. My queen.
  244.  
  245. 57
  246. 00:08:12,533 --> 00:08:15,368
  247. A Persian emissary awaits Leonidas.
  248.  
  249. 58
  250. 00:08:17,914 --> 00:08:19,289
  251. In the end...
  252.  
  253. 59
  254. 00:08:19,457 --> 00:08:23,043
  255. a Spartan's true strength
  256. is the warrior next to him.
  257.  
  258. 60
  259. 00:08:23,794 --> 00:08:28,298
  260. So give respect and honor to him,
  261. and it will be returned to you.
  262.  
  263. 61
  264. 00:08:28,841 --> 00:08:30,342
  265. First...
  266.  
  267. 62
  268. 00:08:31,093 --> 00:08:34,054
  269. - ...you fight with your head.
  270. - Then you fight with your heart.
  271.  
  272. 63
  273. 00:08:36,390 --> 00:08:38,099
  274. What is it?
  275.  
  276. 64
  277. 00:08:38,309 --> 00:08:40,185
  278. A Persian messenger awaits you.
  279.  
  280. 65
  281. 00:08:42,480 --> 00:08:43,939
  282. Do not forget today's lesson.
  283.  
  284. 66
  285. 00:08:44,106 --> 00:08:46,816
  286. - Respect and honor.
  287. - Respect and honor.
  288.  
  289. 67
  290. 00:09:02,333 --> 00:09:06,795
  291. Councilman Theron.
  292. You found yourself needed, for once.
  293.  
  294. 68
  295. 00:09:07,880 --> 00:09:10,799
  296. My king and queen,
  297. I was just entertaining your guests.
  298.  
  299. 69
  300. 00:09:11,008 --> 00:09:12,259
  301. I"m sure.
  302.  
  303. 70
  304. 00:09:13,469 --> 00:09:15,303
  305. Before you speak, Persian...
  306.  
  307. 71
  308. 00:09:15,471 --> 00:09:18,765
  309. know that in Sparta everyone,
  310. even a king's messenger...
  311.  
  312. 72
  313. 00:09:18,933 --> 00:09:21,518
  314. is held accountable
  315. for the words of his voice.
  316.  
  317. 73
  318. 00:09:22,520 --> 00:09:25,272
  319. Now, what message do you bring?
  320.  
  321. 74
  322. 00:09:26,357 --> 00:09:28,817
  323. Earth and water.
  324.  
  325. 75
  326. 00:09:31,112 --> 00:09:34,739
  327. You rode all the way from Persia
  328. for earth and water?
  329.  
  330. 76
  331. 00:09:36,325 --> 00:09:40,203
  332. Do not be coy or stupid, Persian.
  333. You can afford neither in Sparta.
  334.  
  335. 77
  336. 00:09:40,705 --> 00:09:43,164
  337. What makes this woman
  338. think she can speak among men?
  339.  
  340. 78
  341. 00:09:43,332 --> 00:09:46,167
  342. Because only Spartan women
  343. give birth to real men.
  344.  
  345. 79
  346. 00:09:47,670 --> 00:09:51,298
  347. Let us walk to cool our tongues.
  348.  
  349. 80
  350. 00:09:53,884 --> 00:09:57,053
  351. If you value your lives
  352. over your complete annihilation...
  353.  
  354. 81
  355. 00:09:57,221 --> 00:09:58,888
  356. listen carefully, Leonidas.
  357.  
  358. 82
  359. 00:09:59,056 --> 00:10:03,768
  360. Xerxes conquers and controls
  361. everything he rests his eyes upon.
  362.  
  363. 83
  364. 00:10:03,936 --> 00:10:07,022
  365. He leads an army so massive,
  366. it shakes the ground with its march.
  367.  
  368. 84
  369. 00:10:07,189 --> 00:10:09,899
  370. So vast, it drinks the rivers dry.
  371.  
  372. 85
  373. 00:10:10,067 --> 00:10:13,069
  374. All the God-King Xerxes requires is this:
  375.  
  376. 86
  377. 00:10:13,404 --> 00:10:16,656
  378. A simple offering of earth and water...
  379.  
  380. 87
  381. 00:10:16,824 --> 00:10:20,994
  382. a token of Sparta's submission
  383. to the will of Xerxes.
  384.  
  385. 88
  386. 00:10:32,048 --> 00:10:34,215
  387. Submission.
  388.  
  389. 89
  390. 00:10:36,385 --> 00:10:38,303
  391. Now, that's a bit of a problem.
  392.  
  393. 90
  394. 00:10:38,721 --> 00:10:39,971
  395. See, rumor has it...
  396.  
  397. 91
  398. 00:10:40,139 --> 00:10:42,766
  399. the Athenians
  400. have already turned you down.
  401.  
  402. 92
  403. 00:10:43,684 --> 00:10:48,897
  404. And if those philosophers and boy-lovers
  405. have found that kind of nerve, then...
  406.  
  407. 93
  408. 00:10:49,065 --> 00:10:53,318
  409. - We must be diplomatic.
  410. - And, of course, Spartans...
  411.  
  412. 94
  413. 00:10:54,362 --> 00:10:56,404
  414. have their reputation to consider.
  415.  
  416. 95
  417. 00:10:56,572 --> 00:11:00,617
  418. Choose your next words carefully,
  419. Leonidas.
  420.  
  421. 96
  422. 00:11:00,868 --> 00:11:03,495
  423. They may be your last as king.
  424.  
  425. 97
  426. 00:11:43,953 --> 00:11:47,288
  427. "Earth and water."
  428.  
  429. 98
  430. 00:11:52,545 --> 00:11:54,629
  431. Madman. You"re a madman.
  432.  
  433. 99
  434. 00:11:54,797 --> 00:11:56,464
  435. Earth and water.
  436.  
  437. 100
  438. 00:11:56,841 --> 00:11:59,008
  439. You'll find plenty of both down there.
  440.  
  441. 101
  442. 00:11:59,301 --> 00:12:02,721
  443. No man, Persian or Greek,
  444. no man threatens a messenger.
  445.  
  446. 102
  447. 00:12:03,180 --> 00:12:08,143
  448. You bring the crowns and heads
  449. of conquered kings to my city steps.
  450.  
  451. 103
  452. 00:12:08,310 --> 00:12:10,395
  453. You insult my queen.
  454.  
  455. 104
  456. 00:12:10,563 --> 00:12:14,315
  457. You threaten my people
  458. with slavery and death.
  459.  
  460. 105
  461. 00:12:14,483 --> 00:12:17,402
  462. Oh, I've chosen my words carefully,
  463. Persian.
  464.  
  465. 106
  466. 00:12:17,570 --> 00:12:19,529
  467. Perhaps you should have done the same.
  468.  
  469. 107
  470. 00:12:19,697 --> 00:12:23,366
  471. This is blasphemy. This is madness!
  472.  
  473. 108
  474. 00:12:40,760 --> 00:12:42,844
  475. Madness?
  476.  
  477. 109
  478. 00:12:43,471 --> 00:12:45,597
  479. This is Sparta!
  480.  
  481. 110
  482. 00:14:12,101 --> 00:14:14,477
  483. Welcome, Leonidas.
  484.  
  485. 111
  486. 00:14:15,104 --> 00:14:18,273
  487. We have been expecting you.
  488.  
  489. 112
  490. 00:14:24,738 --> 00:14:30,076
  491. The ephors, priests to the old gods.
  492.  
  493. 113
  494. 00:14:30,452 --> 00:14:32,787
  495. Inbred swine.
  496.  
  497. 114
  498. 00:14:32,955 --> 00:14:35,748
  499. More creature than man.
  500.  
  501. 115
  502. 00:14:36,166 --> 00:14:41,629
  503. Creatures whom even Leonidas
  504. must bribe and beg.
  505.  
  506. 116
  507. 00:14:42,464 --> 00:14:47,302
  508. For no Spartan king has gone to war
  509. without the ephors' blessing.
  510.  
  511. 117
  512. 00:14:48,971 --> 00:14:53,057
  513. The Persians claim
  514. their forces number in the millions.
  515.  
  516. 118
  517. 00:14:53,684 --> 00:14:56,978
  518. I hope, for our sake, they exaggerate.
  519.  
  520. 119
  521. 00:14:57,438 --> 00:15:01,649
  522. But there's no question, we face
  523. the most massive army ever assembled.
  524.  
  525. 120
  526. 00:15:01,901 --> 00:15:05,236
  527. Before your plan is heard...
  528.  
  529. 121
  530. 00:15:05,404 --> 00:15:07,655
  531. what do you offer?
  532.  
  533. 122
  534. 00:15:17,207 --> 00:15:21,544
  535. We will use our superior fighting skills...
  536.  
  537. 123
  538. 00:15:21,712 --> 00:15:25,798
  539. and the terrain of Greece herself
  540. to destroy them.
  541.  
  542. 124
  543. 00:15:25,966 --> 00:15:28,801
  544. We will march north to the coast,
  545. where I will make sure...
  546.  
  547. 125
  548. 00:15:28,969 --> 00:15:33,848
  549. It is August, Leonidas.
  550. The full moon approaches.
  551.  
  552. 126
  553. 00:15:34,224 --> 00:15:37,435
  554. The sacred and ancient festival.
  555.  
  556. 127
  557. 00:15:37,603 --> 00:15:41,689
  558. Sparta wages no war
  559. at the time of the Carneia.
  560.  
  561. 128
  562. 00:15:41,857 --> 00:15:43,483
  563. Sparta will burn!
  564.  
  565. 129
  566. 00:15:43,901 --> 00:15:45,443
  567. Her men will die at arms...
  568.  
  569. 130
  570. 00:15:45,611 --> 00:15:49,280
  571. and her women and children
  572. will be slaves or worse.
  573.  
  574. 131
  575. 00:15:51,408 --> 00:15:56,496
  576. Now, we will block
  577. the Persian coastal assault...
  578.  
  579. 132
  580. 00:15:56,789 --> 00:15:59,082
  581. by rebuilding the great Phocian Wall.
  582.  
  583. 133
  584. 00:15:59,249 --> 00:16:03,962
  585. And from there, we will funnel them into
  586. the mountain pass we call the Hot Gates.
  587.  
  588. 134
  589. 00:16:04,129 --> 00:16:08,508
  590. Now, in that narrow corridor,
  591. their numbers will count for nothing.
  592.  
  593. 135
  594. 00:16:08,676 --> 00:16:11,260
  595. And wave after wave of Persian attack...
  596.  
  597. 136
  598. 00:16:11,428 --> 00:16:15,390
  599. will smash against Spartan shields.
  600.  
  601. 137
  602. 00:16:15,933 --> 00:16:20,228
  603. Xerxes' losses will be so great,
  604. his men so demoralized...
  605.  
  606. 138
  607. 00:16:20,396 --> 00:16:24,816
  608. he will have no choice
  609. but to abandon his campaign.
  610.  
  611. 139
  612. 00:16:24,984 --> 00:16:27,694
  613. We must consult the oracle.
  614.  
  615. 140
  616. 00:16:28,404 --> 00:16:30,989
  617. Trust the gods, Leonidas.
  618.  
  619. 141
  620. 00:16:31,156 --> 00:16:34,492
  621. I'd prefer you trusted your reason.
  622.  
  623. 142
  624. 00:16:34,660 --> 00:16:36,703
  625. Your blasphemies...
  626.  
  627. 143
  628. 00:16:36,870 --> 00:16:41,249
  629. have cost us quite enough already.
  630.  
  631. 144
  632. 00:16:41,959 --> 00:16:45,003
  633. Don't compound them.
  634.  
  635. 145
  636. 00:16:47,089 --> 00:16:51,884
  637. We will consult the oracle.
  638.  
  639. 146
  640. 00:16:54,013 --> 00:16:56,514
  641. Diseased old mystics.
  642.  
  643. 147
  644. 00:16:57,516 --> 00:17:02,145
  645. Worthless remnants of a time
  646. before Sparta's ascent from darkness.
  647.  
  648. 148
  649. 00:17:02,479 --> 00:17:05,773
  650. Remnants of a senseless tradition.
  651.  
  652. 149
  653. 00:17:05,941 --> 00:17:10,278
  654. Tradition even Leonidas cannot defy...
  655.  
  656. 150
  657. 00:17:10,446 --> 00:17:14,866
  658. for he must respect
  659. the word of the ephors.
  660.  
  661. 151
  662. 00:17:15,034 --> 00:17:16,951
  663. That is the law.
  664.  
  665. 152
  666. 00:17:19,997 --> 00:17:24,333
  667. And no Spartan, subject or citizen,
  668. man or woman...
  669.  
  670. 153
  671. 00:17:24,501 --> 00:17:28,546
  672. slave or king, is above the law.
  673.  
  674. 154
  675. 00:18:03,415 --> 00:18:07,668
  676. The ephors choose only
  677. the most beautiful Spartan girls...
  678.  
  679. 155
  680. 00:18:07,836 --> 00:18:10,338
  681. to live among them as oracles.
  682.  
  683. 156
  684. 00:18:10,506 --> 00:18:13,800
  685. Their beauty is their curse...
  686.  
  687. 157
  688. 00:18:13,967 --> 00:18:17,762
  689. for the old wretches
  690. have the needs of men...
  691.  
  692. 158
  693. 00:18:18,764 --> 00:18:21,682
  694. and souls as black as hell.
  695.  
  696. 159
  697. 00:18:25,854 --> 00:18:29,023
  698. "Pray to the winds..."
  699.  
  700. 160
  701. 00:18:31,527 --> 00:18:33,736
  702. Sparta will fall.
  703.  
  704. 161
  705. 00:18:36,698 --> 00:18:40,368
  706. All Greece will fall.
  707.  
  708. 162
  709. 00:18:42,538 --> 00:18:46,207
  710. Trust not in men...
  711.  
  712. 163
  713. 00:18:48,210 --> 00:18:51,504
  714. honor the gods.
  715.  
  716. 164
  717. 00:18:55,217 --> 00:18:58,886
  718. "Honor the Carneia."
  719.  
  720. 165
  721. 00:19:00,722 --> 00:19:04,308
  722. The king's climb down is harder.
  723.  
  724. 166
  725. 00:19:04,476 --> 00:19:07,395
  726. Pompous, inbred swine.
  727.  
  728. 167
  729. 00:19:07,563 --> 00:19:10,773
  730. Worthless, diseased, rotten...
  731.  
  732. 168
  733. 00:19:10,941 --> 00:19:12,984
  734. corrupt.
  735.  
  736. 169
  737. 00:19:16,363 --> 00:19:19,991
  738. Truly, you"re
  739. in the god-king's favor now...
  740.  
  741. 170
  742. 00:19:20,576 --> 00:19:22,660
  743. O wise and holy men.
  744.  
  745. 171
  746. 00:19:22,953 --> 00:19:24,412
  747. Yes.
  748.  
  749. 172
  750. 00:19:24,580 --> 00:19:29,542
  751. And when Sparta burns,
  752. you shall bathe in gold.
  753.  
  754. 173
  755. 00:19:29,710 --> 00:19:32,295
  756. Fresh oracles shall be delivered to you...
  757.  
  758. 174
  759. 00:19:32,754 --> 00:19:34,172
  760. daily...
  761.  
  762. 175
  763. 00:19:34,339 --> 00:19:38,134
  764. from every corner of the empire.
  765.  
  766. 176
  767. 00:20:13,795 --> 00:20:17,381
  768. Your lips can finish
  769. what your fingers have started.
  770.  
  771. 177
  772. 00:20:20,510 --> 00:20:22,970
  773. Or has the oracle robbed you
  774. of your desire as well?
  775.  
  776. 178
  777. 00:20:24,514 --> 00:20:27,558
  778. It would take more than the words
  779. of a drunken adolescent girl...
  780.  
  781. 179
  782. 00:20:27,726 --> 00:20:29,435
  783. to rob me of my desire for you.
  784.  
  785. 180
  786. 00:20:33,607 --> 00:20:35,066
  787. Then why so distant?
  788.  
  789. 181
  790. 00:20:38,195 --> 00:20:40,196
  791. Because it seems...
  792.  
  793. 182
  794. 00:20:40,364 --> 00:20:46,327
  795. though a slave and captive
  796. of lecherous old men...
  797.  
  798. 183
  799. 00:20:46,662 --> 00:20:49,872
  800. the oracle's words
  801. could set fire to all that I love.
  802.  
  803. 184
  804. 00:20:50,040 --> 00:20:53,709
  805. So that is why my king loses sleep
  806. and is forced from the warmth of his bed?
  807.  
  808. 185
  809. 00:20:56,672 --> 00:21:01,008
  810. There's only one woman's words that
  811. should affect the mood of my husband.
  812.  
  813. 186
  814. 00:21:01,843 --> 00:21:03,427
  815. Those are mine.
  816.  
  817. 187
  818. 00:21:07,599 --> 00:21:10,017
  819. Then what must a king do
  820. to save his world...
  821.  
  822. 188
  823. 00:21:10,185 --> 00:21:14,605
  824. when the very laws he is sworn
  825. to protect force him to do nothing?
  826.  
  827. 189
  828. 00:21:17,526 --> 00:21:20,861
  829. It is not a question
  830. of what a Spartan citizen should do...
  831.  
  832. 190
  833. 00:21:21,029 --> 00:21:23,906
  834. nor a husband, nor a king.
  835.  
  836. 191
  837. 00:21:24,533 --> 00:21:27,243
  838. Instead ask yourself, my dearest love...
  839.  
  840. 192
  841. 00:21:28,870 --> 00:21:30,871
  842. what should a free man do?
  843.  
  844. 193
  845. 00:22:36,355 --> 00:22:40,524
  846. - Is this all of them?
  847. - As you ordered. Three hundred.
  848.  
  849. 194
  850. 00:22:41,526 --> 00:22:44,820
  851. All with born sons to carry on their name.
  852.  
  853. 195
  854. 00:22:55,582 --> 00:22:56,916
  855. We are with you, sire.
  856.  
  857. 196
  858. 00:22:57,292 --> 00:22:59,418
  859. For Sparta. For freedom.
  860.  
  861. 197
  862. 00:22:59,586 --> 00:23:01,545
  863. To the death.
  864.  
  865. 198
  866. 00:23:12,349 --> 00:23:14,016
  867. He is your son.
  868.  
  869. 199
  870. 00:23:14,810 --> 00:23:17,728
  871. He is too young
  872. to have felt a woman's warmth.
  873.  
  874. 200
  875. 00:23:17,896 --> 00:23:21,857
  876. I have others to replace him.
  877. Astinos is as brave and ready as any.
  878.  
  879. 201
  880. 00:23:22,192 --> 00:23:26,237
  881. No younger than we were the first time
  882. you stood next to me in battle.
  883.  
  884. 202
  885. 00:23:29,991 --> 00:23:32,159
  886. You are a good friend...
  887.  
  888. 203
  889. 00:23:32,327 --> 00:23:35,830
  890. but a better captain, there is none.
  891.  
  892. 204
  893. 00:23:41,336 --> 00:23:43,254
  894. My good king.
  895.  
  896. 205
  897. 00:23:44,172 --> 00:23:47,508
  898. My good king, the oracle has spoken.
  899.  
  900. 206
  901. 00:23:47,676 --> 00:23:50,553
  902. The ephors have spoken.
  903. There must be no march.
  904.  
  905. 207
  906. 00:23:50,720 --> 00:23:52,513
  907. It is the law, my lord.
  908.  
  909. 208
  910. 00:23:52,681 --> 00:23:56,684
  911. - The Spartan army must not go to war.
  912. - Nor shall it.
  913.  
  914. 209
  915. 00:23:57,602 --> 00:23:59,186
  916. I've issued no such orders.
  917.  
  918. 210
  919. 00:23:59,563 --> 00:24:03,107
  920. I"m here just taking a stroll,
  921. stretching my legs.
  922.  
  923. 211
  924. 00:24:03,358 --> 00:24:08,529
  925. These 300 men
  926. are my personal bodyguard.
  927.  
  928. 212
  929. 00:24:08,780 --> 00:24:10,948
  930. Our army will stay in Sparta.
  931.  
  932. 213
  933. 00:24:11,533 --> 00:24:12,867
  934. Where will you go?
  935.  
  936. 214
  937. 00:24:15,871 --> 00:24:18,080
  938. I hadn't really thought about it...
  939.  
  940. 215
  941. 00:24:18,874 --> 00:24:21,041
  942. but now that you ask...
  943.  
  944. 216
  945. 00:24:21,209 --> 00:24:23,961
  946. I suppose I'll head north.
  947.  
  948. 217
  949. 00:24:25,380 --> 00:24:26,505
  950. The Hot Gates?
  951.  
  952. 218
  953. 00:24:29,134 --> 00:24:31,552
  954. Move out!
  955.  
  956. 219
  957. 00:24:31,720 --> 00:24:33,804
  958. Move out!
  959.  
  960. 220
  961. 00:24:34,931 --> 00:24:36,557
  962. What shall we do?
  963.  
  964. 221
  965. 00:24:38,059 --> 00:24:39,393
  966. What can we do?
  967.  
  968. 222
  969. 00:24:40,103 --> 00:24:41,854
  970. What can you do?
  971.  
  972. 223
  973. 00:24:44,900 --> 00:24:48,736
  974. Sparta will need sons.
  975.  
  976. 224
  977. 00:25:36,493 --> 00:25:38,244
  978. Spartan!
  979.  
  980. 225
  981. 00:25:47,504 --> 00:25:48,754
  982. Yes, milady?
  983.  
  984. 226
  985. 00:26:04,813 --> 00:26:07,147
  986. Come back with your shield...
  987.  
  988. 227
  989. 00:26:08,066 --> 00:26:09,483
  990. or on it.
  991.  
  992. 228
  993. 00:26:10,986 --> 00:26:12,319
  994. Yes, milady.
  995.  
  996. 229
  997. 00:26:20,829 --> 00:26:23,163
  998. "Goodbye, my love."
  999.  
  1000. 230
  1001. 00:26:23,790 --> 00:26:26,000
  1002. He doesn't say it.
  1003.  
  1004. 231
  1005. 00:26:26,501 --> 00:26:28,711
  1006. There's no room for softness...
  1007.  
  1008. 232
  1009. 00:26:28,878 --> 00:26:30,879
  1010. not in Sparta.
  1011.  
  1012. 233
  1013. 00:26:31,047 --> 00:26:33,841
  1014. No place for weakness.
  1015.  
  1016. 234
  1017. 00:26:37,345 --> 00:26:41,515
  1018. Only the hard and strong
  1019. may call themselves Spartans.
  1020.  
  1021. 235
  1022. 00:26:42,350 --> 00:26:46,854
  1023. Only the hard. Only the strong.
  1024.  
  1025. 236
  1026. 00:27:15,342 --> 00:27:17,217
  1027. We march...
  1028.  
  1029. 237
  1030. 00:27:17,886 --> 00:27:23,390
  1031. for our lands, for our families,
  1032. for our freedoms.
  1033.  
  1034. 238
  1035. 00:27:24,184 --> 00:27:26,352
  1036. We march.
  1037.  
  1038. 239
  1039. 00:27:28,063 --> 00:27:29,730
  1040. Daxos.
  1041.  
  1042. 240
  1043. 00:27:29,898 --> 00:27:31,596
  1044. What a pleasant surprise.
  1045.  
  1046. 241
  1047. 00:27:31,609 --> 00:27:33,317
  1048. This morning's full
  1049. of surprises, Leonidas.
  1050.  
  1051. 242
  1052. 00:27:33,485 --> 00:27:35,903
  1053. - We've been tricked.
  1054. - Can't be more than a hundred.
  1055.  
  1056. 243
  1057. 00:27:36,071 --> 00:27:38,280
  1058. - This is a surprise.
  1059. - Silence.
  1060.  
  1061. 244
  1062. 00:27:38,740 --> 00:27:40,699
  1063. This isn't their army.
  1064.  
  1065. 245
  1066. 00:27:40,867 --> 00:27:45,037
  1067. We heard Sparta was on the warpath
  1068. and we were eager to join forces.
  1069.  
  1070. 246
  1071. 00:27:45,705 --> 00:27:49,792
  1072. If it is blood you seek,
  1073. you are welcome to join us.
  1074.  
  1075. 247
  1076. 00:27:50,126 --> 00:27:53,379
  1077. But you bring only this handful
  1078. of soldiers against Xerxes?
  1079.  
  1080. 248
  1081. 00:27:53,546 --> 00:27:57,132
  1082. I see I was wrong to expect Sparta's
  1083. commitment to at least match our own.
  1084.  
  1085. 249
  1086. 00:27:58,301 --> 00:28:00,135
  1087. Doesn't it?
  1088.  
  1089. 250
  1090. 00:28:01,596 --> 00:28:03,263
  1091. You, there.
  1092.  
  1093. 251
  1094. 00:28:03,765 --> 00:28:04,932
  1095. What is your profession?
  1096.  
  1097. 252
  1098. 00:28:05,475 --> 00:28:07,601
  1099. I"m a potter, sir.
  1100.  
  1101. 253
  1102. 00:28:08,770 --> 00:28:12,564
  1103. And you, Arcadian.
  1104. What is your profession?
  1105.  
  1106. 254
  1107. 00:28:12,941 --> 00:28:16,360
  1108. - Sculptor, sir.
  1109. - Sculptor.
  1110.  
  1111. 255
  1112. 00:28:16,736 --> 00:28:18,654
  1113. - And you?
  1114. - Blacksmith.
  1115.  
  1116. 256
  1117. 00:28:23,326 --> 00:28:26,620
  1118. Spartans! What is your profession?
  1119.  
  1120. 257
  1121. 00:28:33,795 --> 00:28:35,754
  1122. You see, old friend?
  1123.  
  1124. 258
  1125. 00:28:35,922 --> 00:28:38,799
  1126. I brought more soldiers than you did.
  1127.  
  1128. 259
  1129. 00:28:48,768 --> 00:28:50,561
  1130. No sleep tonight...
  1131.  
  1132. 260
  1133. 00:28:51,646 --> 00:28:54,106
  1134. not for the king.
  1135.  
  1136. 261
  1137. 00:28:54,274 --> 00:28:56,483
  1138. All his 40 years
  1139. have been a straight road...
  1140.  
  1141. 262
  1142. 00:28:56,651 --> 00:29:00,237
  1143. to this one gleaming moment
  1144. in destiny...
  1145.  
  1146. 263
  1147. 00:29:00,405 --> 00:29:03,157
  1148. this one radiant clash
  1149. of shield and spear...
  1150.  
  1151. 264
  1152. 00:29:03,324 --> 00:29:06,952
  1153. sword and bone, and flesh and blood.
  1154.  
  1155. 265
  1156. 00:29:08,663 --> 00:29:10,456
  1157. His only regret...
  1158.  
  1159. 266
  1160. 00:29:10,623 --> 00:29:14,334
  1161. is that he has so few to sacrifice.
  1162.  
  1163. 267
  1164. 00:29:35,648 --> 00:29:37,649
  1165. We"re being followed.
  1166.  
  1167. 268
  1168. 00:29:42,697 --> 00:29:44,865
  1169. It has followed us since Sparta.
  1170.  
  1171. 269
  1172. 00:29:49,829 --> 00:29:52,831
  1173. My king! Look!
  1174.  
  1175. 270
  1176. 00:30:13,770 --> 00:30:15,229
  1177. What happened here?
  1178.  
  1179. 271
  1180. 00:30:15,814 --> 00:30:17,147
  1181. Where are all the people?
  1182.  
  1183. 272
  1184. 00:30:18,233 --> 00:30:19,942
  1185. Persians.
  1186.  
  1187. 273
  1188. 00:30:20,109 --> 00:30:21,902
  1189. I put their number at around 20.
  1190.  
  1191. 274
  1192. 00:30:24,280 --> 00:30:25,656
  1193. A scouting party.
  1194.  
  1195. 275
  1196. 00:30:29,035 --> 00:30:30,536
  1197. But these footprints...
  1198.  
  1199. 276
  1200. 00:30:41,923 --> 00:30:43,382
  1201. Behind us!
  1202.  
  1203. 277
  1204. 00:30:57,438 --> 00:30:58,647
  1205. Child!
  1206.  
  1207. 278
  1208. 00:31:31,639 --> 00:31:34,349
  1209. It's quiet now.
  1210.  
  1211. 279
  1212. 00:31:34,809 --> 00:31:36,643
  1213. They...
  1214.  
  1215. 280
  1216. 00:31:36,978 --> 00:31:41,023
  1217. They came with beasts
  1218. from the blackness.
  1219.  
  1220. 281
  1221. 00:31:42,609 --> 00:31:44,860
  1222. With their claws and fangs...
  1223.  
  1224. 282
  1225. 00:31:45,028 --> 00:31:47,279
  1226. they grabbed them.
  1227.  
  1228. 283
  1229. 00:31:48,156 --> 00:31:50,324
  1230. Everyone...
  1231.  
  1232. 284
  1233. 00:31:51,326 --> 00:31:53,410
  1234. but me.
  1235.  
  1236. 285
  1237. 00:32:05,673 --> 00:32:07,215
  1238. The villagers.
  1239.  
  1240. 286
  1241. 00:32:07,759 --> 00:32:09,676
  1242. I found them.
  1243.  
  1244. 287
  1245. 00:32:21,189 --> 00:32:24,024
  1246. Have the gods no mercy?
  1247.  
  1248. 288
  1249. 00:32:25,193 --> 00:32:27,194
  1250. We are doomed.
  1251.  
  1252. 289
  1253. 00:32:27,362 --> 00:32:30,030
  1254. Quiet yourself.
  1255.  
  1256. 290
  1257. 00:32:33,409 --> 00:32:38,664
  1258. The child speaks of the Persian ghosts,
  1259. known from the ancient times.
  1260.  
  1261. 291
  1262. 00:32:39,540 --> 00:32:42,209
  1263. They are the hunters of men's souls.
  1264.  
  1265. 292
  1266. 00:32:43,252 --> 00:32:45,879
  1267. They cannot be killed or defeated.
  1268.  
  1269. 293
  1270. 00:32:46,506 --> 00:32:50,676
  1271. Not this darkness. Not these Immortals.
  1272.  
  1273. 294
  1274. 00:32:52,845 --> 00:32:55,055
  1275. Immortals?
  1276.  
  1277. 295
  1278. 00:32:55,348 --> 00:32:58,392
  1279. We'll put their name to the test.
  1280.  
  1281. 296
  1282. 00:33:20,456 --> 00:33:23,250
  1283. Into the Hot Gates we march.
  1284.  
  1285. 297
  1286. 00:33:23,418 --> 00:33:26,712
  1287. Into that narrow corridor we march...
  1288.  
  1289. 298
  1290. 00:33:26,879 --> 00:33:29,131
  1291. where Xerxes' numbers
  1292. count for nothing.
  1293.  
  1294. 299
  1295. 00:33:30,299 --> 00:33:34,261
  1296. Spartans, citizen-soldiers, freed slaves.
  1297.  
  1298. 300
  1299. 00:33:34,429 --> 00:33:36,304
  1300. Brave Greeks, all.
  1301.  
  1302. 301
  1303. 00:33:37,306 --> 00:33:40,434
  1304. Brothers, fathers, sons...
  1305.  
  1306. 302
  1307. 00:33:40,601 --> 00:33:42,602
  1308. we march.
  1309.  
  1310. 303
  1311. 00:33:43,271 --> 00:33:47,441
  1312. For honor´s sake, for duty's sake,
  1313. for glory's sake, we march.
  1314.  
  1315. 304
  1316. 00:33:47,608 --> 00:33:50,736
  1317. Look! Persians.
  1318.  
  1319. 305
  1320. 00:33:55,867 --> 00:33:59,619
  1321. Into hell's mouth we march.
  1322.  
  1323. 306
  1324. 00:34:08,629 --> 00:34:10,714
  1325. Let's watch these motherless dogs...
  1326.  
  1327. 307
  1328. 00:34:10,965 --> 00:34:15,010
  1329. as they"re embraced by the loving arms
  1330. of Greece herself. Come.
  1331.  
  1332. 308
  1333. 00:34:17,805 --> 00:34:19,514
  1334. True.
  1335.  
  1336. 309
  1337. 00:34:23,728 --> 00:34:26,188
  1338. It does look like rain.
  1339.  
  1340. 310
  1341. 00:34:29,484 --> 00:34:32,736
  1342. Zeus stabs the sky with thunderbolts...
  1343.  
  1344. 311
  1345. 00:34:33,029 --> 00:34:37,074
  1346. and batters the Persian ships
  1347. with hurricane wind.
  1348.  
  1349. 312
  1350. 00:34:38,201 --> 00:34:40,660
  1351. Glorious.
  1352.  
  1353. 313
  1354. 00:34:52,924 --> 00:34:55,801
  1355. Only one among us
  1356. keeps his Spartan reserve.
  1357.  
  1358. 314
  1359. 00:35:01,724 --> 00:35:03,683
  1360. Only he.
  1361.  
  1362. 315
  1363. 00:35:03,851 --> 00:35:06,311
  1364. Only our king.
  1365.  
  1366. 316
  1367. 00:35:23,704 --> 00:35:25,664
  1368. My queen?
  1369.  
  1370. 317
  1371. 00:35:30,837 --> 00:35:32,170
  1372. My queen...
  1373.  
  1374. 318
  1375. 00:35:32,338 --> 00:35:35,674
  1376. the courtyard is a more fitting place
  1377. for a married woman.
  1378.  
  1379. 319
  1380. 00:35:35,842 --> 00:35:37,509
  1381. I"m afraid gossip and protocol...
  1382.  
  1383. 320
  1384. 00:35:37,677 --> 00:35:40,220
  1385. are the least of my worries now,
  1386. councilman.
  1387.  
  1388. 321
  1389. 00:35:41,889 --> 00:35:43,723
  1390. Is such secrecy needed?
  1391.  
  1392. 322
  1393. 00:35:43,891 --> 00:35:46,560
  1394. How am I to trust beyond the walls
  1395. of my own home?
  1396.  
  1397. 323
  1398. 00:35:46,727 --> 00:35:50,438
  1399. Even here, Theron has eyes and ears
  1400. which fuel Sparta with doubt and fear.
  1401.  
  1402. 324
  1403. 00:35:50,857 --> 00:35:54,234
  1404. You speak as if all Sparta
  1405. conspires against you.
  1406.  
  1407. 325
  1408. 00:35:54,902 --> 00:35:56,945
  1409. I wish it were only against me.
  1410.  
  1411. 326
  1412. 00:35:59,574 --> 00:36:03,076
  1413. Many on our council
  1414. would vote to give all we have...
  1415.  
  1416. 327
  1417. 00:36:03,244 --> 00:36:05,120
  1418. and follow Leonidas...
  1419.  
  1420. 328
  1421. 00:36:05,454 --> 00:36:07,414
  1422. but you must show them favor.
  1423.  
  1424. 329
  1425. 00:36:09,750 --> 00:36:12,210
  1426. And you can arrange for me
  1427. to speak to the council?
  1428.  
  1429. 330
  1430. 00:36:12,378 --> 00:36:14,796
  1431. If it is reason they want,
  1432. I will let them know.
  1433.  
  1434. 331
  1435. 00:36:14,964 --> 00:36:17,090
  1436. Know what, my queen?
  1437.  
  1438. 332
  1439. 00:36:17,466 --> 00:36:19,467
  1440. Freedom isn't free at all.
  1441.  
  1442. 333
  1443. 00:36:19,635 --> 00:36:22,971
  1444. That it comes with the highest of costs,
  1445. the cost of blood.
  1446.  
  1447. 334
  1448. 00:36:25,266 --> 00:36:27,893
  1449. I will do my best to gather our council.
  1450.  
  1451. 335
  1452. 00:36:28,311 --> 00:36:32,147
  1453. And its chamber
  1454. shall be filled with your voice.
  1455.  
  1456. 336
  1457. 00:36:32,481 --> 00:36:34,316
  1458. - I"m in your debt.
  1459. - No.
  1460.  
  1461. 337
  1462. 00:36:34,650 --> 00:36:38,820
  1463. Leonidas is my king as well as yours.
  1464.  
  1465. 338
  1466. 00:37:03,638 --> 00:37:05,472
  1467. I saw those ships smash on the rocks.
  1468.  
  1469. 339
  1470. 00:37:06,599 --> 00:37:07,974
  1471. How can this be?
  1472.  
  1473. 340
  1474. 00:37:08,142 --> 00:37:11,436
  1475. We saw but a fraction of the monster
  1476. that is Xerxes' army.
  1477.  
  1478. 341
  1479. 00:37:12,104 --> 00:37:14,481
  1480. There can be no victory here.
  1481.  
  1482. 342
  1483. 00:37:18,444 --> 00:37:20,153
  1484. Why do you smile?
  1485.  
  1486. 343
  1487. 00:37:21,822 --> 00:37:23,782
  1488. Arcadian...
  1489.  
  1490. 344
  1491. 00:37:23,950 --> 00:37:26,993
  1492. I have fought countless times...
  1493.  
  1494. 345
  1495. 00:37:27,245 --> 00:37:29,913
  1496. yet I've never met an adversary
  1497. who could offer me...
  1498.  
  1499. 346
  1500. 00:37:30,081 --> 00:37:32,249
  1501. what we Spartans
  1502. call "a beautiful death."
  1503.  
  1504. 347
  1505. 00:37:33,042 --> 00:37:34,709
  1506. I can only hope...
  1507.  
  1508. 348
  1509. 00:37:34,877 --> 00:37:37,629
  1510. with all the world's warriors
  1511. gathered against us...
  1512.  
  1513. 349
  1514. 00:37:37,797 --> 00:37:41,466
  1515. there might be one down there
  1516. who's up to the task.
  1517.  
  1518. 350
  1519. 00:37:52,895 --> 00:37:54,771
  1520. Move!
  1521.  
  1522. 351
  1523. 00:37:56,524 --> 00:37:59,484
  1524. Keep going, you dogs!
  1525.  
  1526. 352
  1527. 00:38:07,159 --> 00:38:09,202
  1528. Move!
  1529.  
  1530. 353
  1531. 00:38:10,621 --> 00:38:13,206
  1532. Forward, I say!
  1533.  
  1534. 354
  1535. 00:38:15,543 --> 00:38:17,127
  1536. Stop here!
  1537.  
  1538. 355
  1539. 00:38:17,962 --> 00:38:20,130
  1540. Who commands here?
  1541.  
  1542. 356
  1543. 00:38:22,341 --> 00:38:25,010
  1544. I am the emissary...
  1545.  
  1546. 357
  1547. 00:38:25,177 --> 00:38:27,429
  1548. to the ruler of all the world...
  1549.  
  1550. 358
  1551. 00:38:28,222 --> 00:38:32,142
  1552. the god of gods, king of kings...
  1553.  
  1554. 359
  1555. 00:38:32,310 --> 00:38:33,893
  1556. and by that authority...
  1557.  
  1558. 360
  1559. 00:38:34,061 --> 00:38:37,856
  1560. I demand that someone
  1561. show me your commander.
  1562.  
  1563. 361
  1564. 00:38:41,610 --> 00:38:47,532
  1565. Listen. Do you think the paltry dozen
  1566. you slew scares us?
  1567.  
  1568. 362
  1569. 00:38:47,700 --> 00:38:51,202
  1570. These hills swarm with our scouts.
  1571.  
  1572. 363
  1573. 00:38:51,370 --> 00:38:56,082
  1574. And do you think your pathetic wall
  1575. will do anything...
  1576.  
  1577. 364
  1578. 00:38:56,250 --> 00:39:02,547
  1579. except fall like a heap of dry leaves
  1580. in the face of...?
  1581.  
  1582. 365
  1583. 00:39:14,268 --> 00:39:16,561
  1584. Our ancestors built this wall...
  1585.  
  1586. 366
  1587. 00:39:17,271 --> 00:39:21,232
  1588. using ancient stones
  1589. from the bosom of Greece herself.
  1590.  
  1591. 367
  1592. 00:39:21,650 --> 00:39:24,027
  1593. And with a little Spartan help...
  1594.  
  1595. 368
  1596. 00:39:24,320 --> 00:39:26,780
  1597. your Persian scouts supplied the mortar.
  1598.  
  1599. 369
  1600. 00:39:27,406 --> 00:39:31,368
  1601. You will pay for your barbarism!
  1602.  
  1603. 370
  1604. 00:39:50,513 --> 00:39:52,097
  1605. My arm!
  1606.  
  1607. 371
  1608. 00:39:54,642 --> 00:39:56,518
  1609. It's not yours anymore.
  1610.  
  1611. 372
  1612. 00:39:56,811 --> 00:40:01,439
  1613. Go now. Run along and tell your Xerxes
  1614. he faces free men here...
  1615.  
  1616. 373
  1617. 00:40:01,816 --> 00:40:03,149
  1618. not slaves.
  1619.  
  1620. 374
  1621. 00:40:03,317 --> 00:40:04,567
  1622. Do it quickly...
  1623.  
  1624. 375
  1625. 00:40:04,819 --> 00:40:07,737
  1626. before we decide to make our wall
  1627. just a little bit bigger.
  1628.  
  1629. 376
  1630. 00:40:08,239 --> 00:40:09,823
  1631. No.
  1632.  
  1633. 377
  1634. 00:40:09,990 --> 00:40:12,033
  1635. Not slaves.
  1636.  
  1637. 378
  1638. 00:40:14,245 --> 00:40:17,664
  1639. Your women will be slaves.
  1640.  
  1641. 379
  1642. 00:40:17,998 --> 00:40:20,834
  1643. Your sons, your daughters...
  1644.  
  1645. 380
  1646. 00:40:21,001 --> 00:40:23,336
  1647. your elders will be slaves!
  1648.  
  1649. 381
  1650. 00:40:23,504 --> 00:40:26,297
  1651. But not you, no.
  1652.  
  1653. 382
  1654. 00:40:26,465 --> 00:40:30,510
  1655. By noon this day you will be dead men.
  1656.  
  1657. 383
  1658. 00:40:31,679 --> 00:40:37,684
  1659. A thousand nations of the Persian Empire
  1660. descend upon you.
  1661.  
  1662. 384
  1663. 00:40:38,102 --> 00:40:41,604
  1664. Our arrows will blot out the sun.
  1665.  
  1666. 385
  1667. 00:40:43,357 --> 00:40:46,067
  1668. Then we will fight in the shade.
  1669.  
  1670. 386
  1671. 00:40:47,611 --> 00:40:49,362
  1672. The wall is solid.
  1673.  
  1674. 387
  1675. 00:40:49,530 --> 00:40:52,699
  1676. It'll do the job of funneling the Persians
  1677. into the Hot Gates.
  1678.  
  1679. 388
  1680. 00:40:53,033 --> 00:40:55,743
  1681. Have the men found any route
  1682. through the hills to our back?
  1683.  
  1684. 389
  1685. 00:40:56,245 --> 00:40:58,288
  1686. None, sire.
  1687.  
  1688. 390
  1689. 00:40:58,539 --> 00:41:00,123
  1690. There is such a route, good king.
  1691.  
  1692. 391
  1693. 00:41:00,666 --> 00:41:02,375
  1694. Just pass that western ridge.
  1695.  
  1696. 392
  1697. 00:41:03,043 --> 00:41:04,752
  1698. It's an old goat path.
  1699.  
  1700. 393
  1701. 00:41:04,920 --> 00:41:07,755
  1702. The Persians could use it to outflank us.
  1703.  
  1704. 394
  1705. 00:41:07,923 --> 00:41:11,676
  1706. Not one step closer, monster!
  1707.  
  1708. 395
  1709. 00:41:13,304 --> 00:41:16,890
  1710. Wise king, I humbly request an audience.
  1711.  
  1712. 396
  1713. 00:41:17,057 --> 00:41:20,435
  1714. - I'll skewer you where you stand.
  1715. - I gave no such order.
  1716.  
  1717. 397
  1718. 00:41:30,946 --> 00:41:32,197
  1719. Forgive the captain.
  1720.  
  1721. 398
  1722. 00:41:32,865 --> 00:41:34,365
  1723. He is a good soldier...
  1724.  
  1725. 399
  1726. 00:41:34,909 --> 00:41:37,577
  1727. but a bit short on manners.
  1728.  
  1729. 400
  1730. 00:41:37,745 --> 00:41:41,789
  1731. There is nothing to forgive, brave king.
  1732. I know what I look like.
  1733.  
  1734. 401
  1735. 00:41:42,249 --> 00:41:44,250
  1736. You wear the crimson of a Spartan.
  1737.  
  1738. 402
  1739. 00:41:44,877 --> 00:41:50,507
  1740. I am Ephialtes, born of Sparta.
  1741.  
  1742. 403
  1743. 00:41:51,091 --> 00:41:55,178
  1744. My mother's love
  1745. led my parents to flee Sparta...
  1746.  
  1747. 404
  1748. 00:41:55,346 --> 00:41:56,804
  1749. lest I be discarded.
  1750.  
  1751. 405
  1752. 00:41:57,348 --> 00:42:00,141
  1753. Your shield and armor?
  1754.  
  1755. 406
  1756. 00:42:01,060 --> 00:42:02,727
  1757. My father's, sir.
  1758.  
  1759. 407
  1760. 00:42:04,063 --> 00:42:08,107
  1761. I beg you, bold king,
  1762. to permit me...
  1763.  
  1764. 408
  1765. 00:42:08,275 --> 00:42:13,321
  1766. to redeem my father's name
  1767. by serving you in combat.
  1768.  
  1769. 409
  1770. 00:42:13,614 --> 00:42:19,494
  1771. My father trained me to feel no fear,
  1772. to make spear and shield and sword...
  1773.  
  1774. 410
  1775. 00:42:19,662 --> 00:42:22,413
  1776. as much a part of me
  1777. as my own beating heart.
  1778.  
  1779. 411
  1780. 00:42:22,831 --> 00:42:26,125
  1781. I will earn my father's
  1782. armor, noble king...
  1783.  
  1784. 412
  1785. 00:42:26,293 --> 00:42:28,461
  1786. by serving you in the battle.
  1787.  
  1788. 413
  1789. 00:42:33,634 --> 00:42:35,760
  1790. A fine thrust.
  1791.  
  1792. 414
  1793. 00:42:35,928 --> 00:42:37,512
  1794. I will kill many Persians.
  1795.  
  1796. 415
  1797. 00:42:43,394 --> 00:42:44,978
  1798. Raise your shield.
  1799.  
  1800. 416
  1801. 00:42:45,145 --> 00:42:47,814
  1802. - Sire?
  1803. - Raise your shield as high as you can.
  1804.  
  1805. 417
  1806. 00:42:56,073 --> 00:42:59,117
  1807. Your father should have taught you
  1808. how our phalanx works.
  1809.  
  1810. 418
  1811. 00:42:59,785 --> 00:43:01,077
  1812. We fight...
  1813.  
  1814. 419
  1815. 00:43:01,620 --> 00:43:04,497
  1816. as a single, impenetrable unit.
  1817.  
  1818. 420
  1819. 00:43:04,665 --> 00:43:07,625
  1820. That is the source of our strength.
  1821.  
  1822. 421
  1823. 00:43:08,460 --> 00:43:12,088
  1824. Each Spartan protects the man
  1825. to his left...
  1826.  
  1827. 422
  1828. 00:43:12,256 --> 00:43:15,466
  1829. from thigh to neck with his shield.
  1830.  
  1831. 423
  1832. 00:43:15,634 --> 00:43:20,305
  1833. A single weak spot
  1834. and the phalanx shatters.
  1835.  
  1836. 424
  1837. 00:43:21,682 --> 00:43:24,934
  1838. From thigh to neck, Ephialtes.
  1839.  
  1840. 425
  1841. 00:43:26,979 --> 00:43:29,355
  1842. I am sorry, my friend.
  1843.  
  1844. 426
  1845. 00:43:29,523 --> 00:43:30,825
  1846. But not all of us were
  1847. made to be soldiers.
  1848.  
  1849. 427
  1850. 00:43:30,838 --> 00:43:32,150
  1851. But I...
  1852.  
  1853. 428
  1854. 00:43:32,318 --> 00:43:33,515
  1855. If you want to help
  1856. in a Spartan victory...
  1857.  
  1858. 429
  1859. 00:43:33,528 --> 00:43:34,736
  1860. Yes.
  1861.  
  1862. 430
  1863. 00:43:34,903 --> 00:43:40,074
  1864. Clear the battlefield of the dead,
  1865. tend the wounded, bring them water...
  1866.  
  1867. 431
  1868. 00:43:40,242 --> 00:43:41,868
  1869. but as for the fight itself...
  1870.  
  1871. 432
  1872. 00:43:43,245 --> 00:43:45,163
  1873. I cannot use you.
  1874.  
  1875. 433
  1876. 00:43:46,999 --> 00:43:48,416
  1877. You...
  1878.  
  1879. 434
  1880. 00:43:56,300 --> 00:44:00,386
  1881. Mother! Father! You were wrong!
  1882.  
  1883. 435
  1884. 00:44:03,682 --> 00:44:05,433
  1885. You are wrong!
  1886.  
  1887. 436
  1888. 00:44:05,601 --> 00:44:10,146
  1889. Leonidas! You are wrong!
  1890.  
  1891. 437
  1892. 00:44:10,606 --> 00:44:13,066
  1893. Dispatch the Phocians to the goat path...
  1894.  
  1895. 438
  1896. 00:44:13,233 --> 00:44:17,779
  1897. and pray to the gods
  1898. nobody tells the Persians about it.
  1899.  
  1900. 439
  1901. 00:44:23,494 --> 00:44:25,078
  1902. Earthquake.
  1903.  
  1904. 440
  1905. 00:44:25,579 --> 00:44:26,829
  1906. No, captain.
  1907.  
  1908. 441
  1909. 00:44:28,415 --> 00:44:30,375
  1910. Battle formations.
  1911.  
  1912. 442
  1913. 00:44:54,274 --> 00:44:57,443
  1914. This is where we hold them.
  1915.  
  1916. 443
  1917. 00:44:57,611 --> 00:44:59,904
  1918. This is where we fight!
  1919.  
  1920. 444
  1921. 00:45:00,447 --> 00:45:02,699
  1922. This is where they die!
  1923.  
  1924. 445
  1925. 00:45:03,033 --> 00:45:04,909
  1926. Earn these shields, boys!
  1927.  
  1928. 446
  1929. 00:45:07,621 --> 00:45:10,123
  1930. Remember this day, men...
  1931.  
  1932. 447
  1933. 00:45:10,290 --> 00:45:14,043
  1934. for it will be yours for all time.
  1935.  
  1936. 448
  1937. 00:45:25,139 --> 00:45:26,931
  1938. Spartans!
  1939.  
  1940. 449
  1941. 00:45:27,099 --> 00:45:29,225
  1942. Lay down your weapons!
  1943.  
  1944. 450
  1945. 00:45:46,118 --> 00:45:48,369
  1946. Persians!
  1947.  
  1948. 451
  1949. 00:45:48,954 --> 00:45:50,997
  1950. Come and get them!
  1951.  
  1952. 452
  1953. 00:46:12,519 --> 00:46:14,145
  1954. Hold!
  1955.  
  1956. 453
  1957. 00:46:16,982 --> 00:46:18,524
  1958. Give them nothing...
  1959.  
  1960. 454
  1961. 00:46:18,984 --> 00:46:22,570
  1962. but take from them everything!
  1963.  
  1964. 455
  1965. 00:46:24,281 --> 00:46:26,032
  1966. Steady!
  1967.  
  1968. 456
  1969. 00:46:36,794 --> 00:46:38,336
  1970. Push!
  1971.  
  1972. 457
  1973. 00:46:42,174 --> 00:46:44,550
  1974. Is that the best you can do?
  1975.  
  1976. 458
  1977. 00:46:46,762 --> 00:46:48,763
  1978. Push! Push!
  1979.  
  1980. 459
  1981. 00:46:58,857 --> 00:47:00,399
  1982. Now!
  1983.  
  1984. 460
  1985. 00:47:12,204 --> 00:47:13,704
  1986. Push!
  1987.  
  1988. 461
  1989. 00:47:57,249 --> 00:47:59,834
  1990. No prisoners!
  1991.  
  1992. 462
  1993. 00:48:00,168 --> 00:48:01,919
  1994. No mercy!
  1995.  
  1996. 463
  1997. 00:49:21,208 --> 00:49:23,376
  1998. They look thirsty.
  1999.  
  2000. 464
  2001. 00:49:24,461 --> 00:49:27,380
  2002. Well, let's give them something to drink.
  2003.  
  2004. 465
  2005. 00:49:30,300 --> 00:49:32,969
  2006. To the cliffs.
  2007.  
  2008. 466
  2009. 00:49:56,576 --> 00:49:58,744
  2010. Halt.
  2011.  
  2012. 467
  2013. 00:50:00,872 --> 00:50:02,957
  2014. Hell of a good start.
  2015.  
  2016. 468
  2017. 00:50:25,605 --> 00:50:28,107
  2018. Tuck tail!
  2019.  
  2020. 469
  2021. 00:50:33,572 --> 00:50:35,114
  2022. Persian cowards.
  2023.  
  2024. 470
  2025. 00:50:42,914 --> 00:50:45,833
  2026. - What the hell are you laughing at?
  2027. - Well, you had to say it.
  2028.  
  2029. 471
  2030. 00:50:46,626 --> 00:50:50,296
  2031. - What?
  2032. - "Fight in the shade."
  2033.  
  2034. 472
  2035. 00:51:03,810 --> 00:51:05,770
  2036. Recover.
  2037.  
  2038. 473
  2039. 00:51:29,044 --> 00:51:31,670
  2040. Today no Spartan dies.
  2041.  
  2042. 474
  2043. 00:51:56,822 --> 00:51:58,239
  2044. Easy, son.
  2045.  
  2046. 475
  2047. 00:52:24,474 --> 00:52:26,433
  2048. We do what we were trained to do...
  2049.  
  2050. 476
  2051. 00:52:26,601 --> 00:52:28,060
  2052. what we were bred to do...
  2053.  
  2054. 477
  2055. 00:52:28,228 --> 00:52:31,230
  2056. what we were born to do.
  2057.  
  2058. 478
  2059. 00:52:38,613 --> 00:52:41,615
  2060. No prisoners. No mercy.
  2061.  
  2062. 479
  2063. 00:52:41,783 --> 00:52:43,242
  2064. A good start.
  2065.  
  2066. 480
  2067. 00:53:52,729 --> 00:53:54,605
  2068. I was afraid you might not come.
  2069.  
  2070. 481
  2071. 00:53:54,773 --> 00:53:55,981
  2072. I"m sorry, my son is...
  2073.  
  2074. 482
  2075. 00:53:56,149 --> 00:54:01,779
  2076. Is doing what children do best.
  2077. Please, don't apologize.
  2078.  
  2079. 483
  2080. 00:54:02,781 --> 00:54:04,907
  2081. Your son starts the agoge next year.
  2082.  
  2083. 484
  2084. 00:54:05,492 --> 00:54:09,495
  2085. That is always a difficult time
  2086. for a Spartan mother.
  2087.  
  2088. 485
  2089. 00:54:10,622 --> 00:54:15,167
  2090. Yes, it will be hard. But also necessary.
  2091.  
  2092. 486
  2093. 00:54:17,629 --> 00:54:21,840
  2094. You will speak before the council
  2095. in two days' time.
  2096.  
  2097. 487
  2098. 00:54:23,718 --> 00:54:25,761
  2099. My husband does not have two days.
  2100.  
  2101. 488
  2102. 00:54:26,179 --> 00:54:28,138
  2103. Think of the two days as a gift.
  2104.  
  2105. 489
  2106. 00:54:30,183 --> 00:54:32,226
  2107. It's no secret...
  2108.  
  2109. 490
  2110. 00:54:32,394 --> 00:54:35,271
  2111. Theron wants what you control.
  2112.  
  2113. 491
  2114. 00:54:35,438 --> 00:54:38,274
  2115. It's his voice you must silence.
  2116.  
  2117. 492
  2118. 00:54:38,441 --> 00:54:40,526
  2119. Make him your ally...
  2120.  
  2121. 493
  2122. 00:54:40,860 --> 00:54:43,404
  2123. and you will have your victory.
  2124.  
  2125. 494
  2126. 00:54:44,197 --> 00:54:45,990
  2127. Thank you.
  2128.  
  2129. 495
  2130. 00:54:46,324 --> 00:54:48,701
  2131. You are wise as you are kind.
  2132.  
  2133. 496
  2134. 00:55:15,520 --> 00:55:17,563
  2135. Ah, there's your mother.
  2136.  
  2137. 497
  2138. 00:55:24,029 --> 00:55:27,448
  2139. You should keep a better eye on him
  2140. if he's to be king one day.
  2141.  
  2142. 498
  2143. 00:55:27,657 --> 00:55:30,117
  2144. Be unfortunate if anything
  2145. were to happen to him.
  2146.  
  2147. 499
  2148. 00:55:31,619 --> 00:55:33,495
  2149. Or to his beautiful mother.
  2150.  
  2151. 500
  2152. 00:55:49,554 --> 00:55:51,055
  2153. No! Ahh!
  2154.  
  2155. 501
  2156. 00:55:54,267 --> 00:55:59,730
  2157. Our Greek comrades are begging
  2158. for a crack at the Persians, sire.
  2159.  
  2160. 502
  2161. 00:56:00,023 --> 00:56:01,357
  2162. Good.
  2163.  
  2164. 503
  2165. 00:56:01,524 --> 00:56:04,276
  2166. I've got something
  2167. I think they can handle.
  2168.  
  2169. 504
  2170. 00:56:04,778 --> 00:56:06,487
  2171. Tell Daxos that I want him...
  2172.  
  2173. 505
  2174. 00:56:06,654 --> 00:56:11,200
  2175. and 20 of his best eager, sober
  2176. and ready for the next charge.
  2177.  
  2178. 506
  2179. 00:56:11,368 --> 00:56:13,202
  2180. King Leonidas.
  2181.  
  2182. 507
  2183. 00:56:15,705 --> 00:56:19,500
  2184. - Stelios, catch your breath, boy.
  2185. - Yes, milord.
  2186.  
  2187. 508
  2188. 00:56:20,126 --> 00:56:22,294
  2189. The Persians are approaching.
  2190.  
  2191. 509
  2192. 00:56:23,630 --> 00:56:27,508
  2193. A small contingent.
  2194. Too small for an attack.
  2195.  
  2196. 510
  2197. 00:56:31,262 --> 00:56:34,807
  2198. - Captain, I leave you in charge.
  2199. - But sire...
  2200.  
  2201. 511
  2202. 00:56:34,974 --> 00:56:36,225
  2203. Relax, old friend.
  2204.  
  2205. 512
  2206. 00:56:36,393 --> 00:56:40,979
  2207. If they assassinate me,
  2208. all of Sparta goes to war.
  2209.  
  2210. 513
  2211. 00:56:41,898 --> 00:56:44,483
  2212. Pray they"re that stupid.
  2213.  
  2214. 514
  2215. 00:56:45,610 --> 00:56:47,319
  2216. Pray...
  2217.  
  2218. 515
  2219. 00:56:47,821 --> 00:56:50,030
  2220. we"re that lucky.
  2221.  
  2222. 516
  2223. 00:56:53,159 --> 00:56:54,952
  2224. Besides...
  2225.  
  2226. 517
  2227. 00:56:57,205 --> 00:57:00,541
  2228. there's no reason we can't be civil...
  2229.  
  2230. 518
  2231. 00:57:00,834 --> 00:57:02,459
  2232. is there?
  2233.  
  2234. 519
  2235. 00:57:04,045 --> 00:57:05,546
  2236. None, sire.
  2237.  
  2238. 520
  2239. 00:57:24,190 --> 00:57:26,400
  2240. Let me guess.
  2241.  
  2242. 521
  2243. 00:57:27,152 --> 00:57:30,154
  2244. You must be Xerxes.
  2245.  
  2246. 522
  2247. 00:57:42,167 --> 00:57:44,376
  2248. Come, Leonidas.
  2249.  
  2250. 523
  2251. 00:57:45,795 --> 00:57:47,546
  2252. Let us reason together.
  2253.  
  2254. 524
  2255. 00:57:47,839 --> 00:57:49,798
  2256. It would be a regrettable waste...
  2257.  
  2258. 525
  2259. 00:57:50,216 --> 00:57:53,385
  2260. it would be nothing short of madness
  2261. were you, brave king...
  2262.  
  2263. 526
  2264. 00:57:53,553 --> 00:57:56,763
  2265. and your valiant troops to perish...
  2266.  
  2267. 527
  2268. 00:57:57,390 --> 00:57:59,475
  2269. all because of a simple
  2270. misunderstanding.
  2271.  
  2272. 528
  2273. 00:58:00,059 --> 00:58:02,895
  2274. - There's much our cultures could share.
  2275. - Haven't you noticed?
  2276.  
  2277. 529
  2278. 00:58:03,062 --> 00:58:05,481
  2279. We've been sharing our culture
  2280. with you all morning.
  2281.  
  2282. 530
  2283. 00:58:06,065 --> 00:58:08,358
  2284. Yours is a fascinating tribe.
  2285.  
  2286. 531
  2287. 00:58:08,526 --> 00:58:10,694
  2288. Even now you are defiant...
  2289.  
  2290. 532
  2291. 00:58:10,862 --> 00:58:14,990
  2292. in the face of annihilation
  2293. and the presence of a god.
  2294.  
  2295. 533
  2296. 00:58:15,158 --> 00:58:17,201
  2297. It isn't wise to stand against me,
  2298. Leonidas.
  2299.  
  2300. 534
  2301. 00:58:17,869 --> 00:58:20,078
  2302. Imagine what a horrible fate
  2303. awaits my enemies...
  2304.  
  2305. 535
  2306. 00:58:20,246 --> 00:58:23,165
  2307. when I would gladly kill
  2308. any of my own men for victory.
  2309.  
  2310. 536
  2311. 00:58:23,333 --> 00:58:25,959
  2312. And I would die for any one of mine.
  2313.  
  2314. 537
  2315. 00:58:26,127 --> 00:58:30,380
  2316. You Greeks take pride in your logic.
  2317. I suggest you employ it.
  2318.  
  2319. 538
  2320. 00:58:30,548 --> 00:58:34,092
  2321. Consider the beautiful land
  2322. you so vigorously defend.
  2323.  
  2324. 539
  2325. 00:58:34,260 --> 00:58:36,762
  2326. Picture it reduced to ash at my whim.
  2327.  
  2328. 540
  2329. 00:58:37,013 --> 00:58:38,472
  2330. Consider the fate of your women.
  2331.  
  2332. 541
  2333. 00:58:39,098 --> 00:58:41,600
  2334. Clearly you don't know our women.
  2335.  
  2336. 542
  2337. 00:58:41,768 --> 00:58:45,312
  2338. I might as well have marched them up here,
  2339. judging by what I've seen.
  2340.  
  2341. 543
  2342. 00:58:46,439 --> 00:58:48,941
  2343. You have many slaves, Xerxes...
  2344.  
  2345. 544
  2346. 00:58:49,901 --> 00:58:52,194
  2347. but few warriors.
  2348.  
  2349. 545
  2350. 00:58:52,362 --> 00:58:56,281
  2351. It won't be long
  2352. before they fear my spears...
  2353.  
  2354. 546
  2355. 00:58:56,699 --> 00:58:59,117
  2356. more than your whips.
  2357.  
  2358. 547
  2359. 00:59:02,956 --> 00:59:05,832
  2360. It's not the lash they fear...
  2361.  
  2362. 548
  2363. 00:59:08,586 --> 00:59:10,254
  2364. it is my divine power.
  2365.  
  2366. 549
  2367. 00:59:10,964 --> 00:59:15,467
  2368. But I am a generous god.
  2369. I can make you rich beyond all measure.
  2370.  
  2371. 550
  2372. 00:59:15,927 --> 00:59:18,303
  2373. I will make you warlord of all Greece.
  2374.  
  2375. 551
  2376. 00:59:18,972 --> 00:59:22,849
  2377. You will carry my battle standard
  2378. to the heart of Europa.
  2379.  
  2380. 552
  2381. 00:59:23,017 --> 00:59:25,644
  2382. Your Athenian rivals...
  2383.  
  2384. 553
  2385. 00:59:25,937 --> 00:59:28,105
  2386. will kneel at your feet...
  2387.  
  2388. 554
  2389. 00:59:28,815 --> 00:59:31,608
  2390. if you will but kneel at mine.
  2391.  
  2392. 555
  2393. 00:59:32,443 --> 00:59:34,695
  2394. You are generous...
  2395.  
  2396. 556
  2397. 00:59:35,280 --> 00:59:37,656
  2398. as you are divine...
  2399.  
  2400. 557
  2401. 00:59:38,408 --> 00:59:40,033
  2402. O king of kings.
  2403.  
  2404. 558
  2405. 00:59:40,201 --> 00:59:44,121
  2406. Such an offer
  2407. only a madman would refuse.
  2408.  
  2409. 559
  2410. 00:59:44,706 --> 00:59:46,707
  2411. But the...
  2412.  
  2413. 560
  2414. 00:59:47,625 --> 00:59:50,460
  2415. The idea of kneeling, it's...
  2416.  
  2417. 561
  2418. 00:59:50,628 --> 00:59:55,173
  2419. You see, slaughtering
  2420. all those men of yours has...
  2421.  
  2422. 562
  2423. 00:59:55,341 --> 00:59:59,177
  2424. Well, it's left a nasty cramp in my leg...
  2425.  
  2426. 563
  2427. 00:59:59,345 --> 01:00:01,430
  2428. so kneeling will be hard for me.
  2429.  
  2430. 564
  2431. 01:00:01,681 --> 01:00:05,058
  2432. There will be no glory in your sacrifice.
  2433.  
  2434. 565
  2435. 01:00:05,226 --> 01:00:08,854
  2436. I will erase even the memory of Sparta
  2437. from the histories.
  2438.  
  2439. 566
  2440. 01:00:09,022 --> 01:00:12,190
  2441. Every piece of Greek parchment
  2442. shall be burned.
  2443.  
  2444. 567
  2445. 01:00:12,358 --> 01:00:15,694
  2446. Every Greek historian and every scribe
  2447. shall have their eyes put out...
  2448.  
  2449. 568
  2450. 01:00:15,862 --> 01:00:18,155
  2451. and their tongues
  2452. cut from their mouths.
  2453.  
  2454. 569
  2455. 01:00:18,323 --> 01:00:24,328
  2456. Why, uttering the very name of Sparta
  2457. or Leonidas will be punishable by death.
  2458.  
  2459. 570
  2460. 01:00:24,954 --> 01:00:28,206
  2461. The world will never know
  2462. you existed at all.
  2463.  
  2464. 571
  2465. 01:00:30,376 --> 01:00:34,963
  2466. The world will know
  2467. that free men stood against a tyrant.
  2468.  
  2469. 572
  2470. 01:00:35,173 --> 01:00:38,675
  2471. That few stood against many.
  2472.  
  2473. 573
  2474. 01:00:39,052 --> 01:00:42,220
  2475. And before this battle was over...
  2476.  
  2477. 574
  2478. 01:00:42,472 --> 01:00:45,432
  2479. that even a god-king can bleed.
  2480.  
  2481. 575
  2482. 01:00:52,815 --> 01:00:55,025
  2483. You fought well today...
  2484.  
  2485. 576
  2486. 01:00:56,361 --> 01:00:58,236
  2487. for a woman.
  2488.  
  2489. 577
  2490. 01:00:59,405 --> 01:01:01,073
  2491. As did you.
  2492.  
  2493. 578
  2494. 01:01:01,240 --> 01:01:04,368
  2495. Maybe if I"m injured,
  2496. you'll be able to keep up with me.
  2497.  
  2498. 579
  2499. 01:01:04,869 --> 01:01:09,831
  2500. Perhaps I was so
  2501. far ahead you couldn't see me.
  2502.  
  2503. 580
  2504. 01:01:10,416 --> 01:01:13,627
  2505. More likely offering your backside
  2506. to the Thespians.
  2507.  
  2508. 581
  2509. 01:01:14,587 --> 01:01:16,213
  2510. Jealousy...
  2511.  
  2512. 582
  2513. 01:01:16,381 --> 01:01:18,882
  2514. does not become you, my friend.
  2515.  
  2516. 583
  2517. 01:01:21,594 --> 01:01:23,929
  2518. Move it, men!
  2519.  
  2520. 584
  2521. 01:01:26,057 --> 01:01:28,266
  2522. Pile those Persians high.
  2523.  
  2524. 585
  2525. 01:01:31,437 --> 01:01:34,231
  2526. For unless I miss my guess...
  2527.  
  2528. 586
  2529. 01:01:34,774 --> 01:01:37,776
  2530. we"re in for one wild night.
  2531.  
  2532. 587
  2533. 01:02:01,718 --> 01:02:06,888
  2534. They have served the dark
  2535. will of Persian kings for 500 years.
  2536.  
  2537. 588
  2538. 01:02:07,056 --> 01:02:09,391
  2539. Eyes as dark as night.
  2540.  
  2541. 589
  2542. 01:02:09,559 --> 01:02:11,560
  2543. Teeth filed to fangs.
  2544.  
  2545. 590
  2546. 01:02:13,646 --> 01:02:15,939
  2547. Soulless.
  2548.  
  2549. 591
  2550. 01:02:23,322 --> 01:02:28,118
  2551. The personal guard to King Xerxes himself.
  2552. The Persian warrior elite.
  2553.  
  2554. 592
  2555. 01:02:29,912 --> 01:02:32,998
  2556. The deadliest fighting
  2557. force in all of Asia:
  2558.  
  2559. 593
  2560. 01:02:33,791 --> 01:02:35,834
  2561. The Immortals.
  2562.  
  2563. 594
  2564. 01:02:44,051 --> 01:02:47,471
  2565. The god-king has betrayed a fatal flaw:
  2566.  
  2567. 595
  2568. 01:02:47,972 --> 01:02:49,723
  2569. Hubris.
  2570.  
  2571. 596
  2572. 01:02:51,976 --> 01:02:54,728
  2573. Easy to taunt, easy to trick.
  2574.  
  2575. 597
  2576. 01:02:55,396 --> 01:02:57,856
  2577. Before wounds and weariness
  2578. have taken their toll...
  2579.  
  2580. 598
  2581. 01:02:58,024 --> 01:03:01,526
  2582. the mad king
  2583. throws the best he has at us.
  2584.  
  2585. 599
  2586. 01:03:02,028 --> 01:03:03,737
  2587. Xerxes has taken the bait.
  2588.  
  2589. 600
  2590. 01:03:03,905 --> 01:03:05,697
  2591. Spartans, push!
  2592.  
  2593. 601
  2594. 01:03:16,375 --> 01:03:18,001
  2595. Immortals.
  2596.  
  2597. 602
  2598. 01:03:18,461 --> 01:03:21,421
  2599. We put their name to the test.
  2600.  
  2601. 603
  2602. 01:04:05,591 --> 01:04:07,050
  2603. Father!
  2604.  
  2605. 604
  2606. 01:05:52,698 --> 01:05:53,990
  2607. My king!
  2608.  
  2609. 605
  2610. 01:07:06,772 --> 01:07:08,732
  2611. Arcadians, now!
  2612.  
  2613. 606
  2614. 01:07:11,027 --> 01:07:13,778
  2615. Go! Show the Spartans what we can do.
  2616.  
  2617. 607
  2618. 01:07:14,405 --> 01:07:15,822
  2619. Go!
  2620.  
  2621. 608
  2622. 01:07:25,249 --> 01:07:27,125
  2623. They shout and curse...
  2624.  
  2625. 609
  2626. 01:07:27,293 --> 01:07:30,503
  2627. stabbing wildly,
  2628. more brawlers than warriors.
  2629.  
  2630. 610
  2631. 01:07:31,630 --> 01:07:34,215
  2632. They make a wondrous mess of things.
  2633.  
  2634. 611
  2635. 01:07:35,259 --> 01:07:38,011
  2636. Brave amateurs, they do their part.
  2637.  
  2638. 612
  2639. 01:08:25,643 --> 01:08:27,519
  2640. Immortals.
  2641.  
  2642. 613
  2643. 01:08:27,686 --> 01:08:30,271
  2644. They fail our king's test.
  2645.  
  2646. 614
  2647. 01:08:30,439 --> 01:08:33,358
  2648. And a man who fancies himself a god...
  2649.  
  2650. 615
  2651. 01:08:34,110 --> 01:08:39,030
  2652. feels a very human chill
  2653. crawl up his spine.
  2654.  
  2655. 616
  2656. 01:08:46,163 --> 01:08:48,289
  2657. To our king!
  2658.  
  2659. 617
  2660. 01:08:48,666 --> 01:08:50,667
  2661. And our honored dead.
  2662.  
  2663. 618
  2664. 01:08:50,835 --> 01:08:53,628
  2665. Whom will Xerxes dare to send next?
  2666. Whom?!
  2667.  
  2668. 619
  2669. 01:08:53,963 --> 01:08:56,673
  2670. There's nothing that can stop us now!
  2671.  
  2672. 620
  2673. 01:08:57,550 --> 01:09:01,052
  2674. Even the king allows himself
  2675. to hope for more than glory.
  2676.  
  2677. 621
  2678. 01:09:01,220 --> 01:09:04,556
  2679. Such mad hope, but there it is:
  2680.  
  2681. 622
  2682. 01:09:05,015 --> 01:09:10,395
  2683. "Against Asia's endless hordes,
  2684. against all odds, we can do it."
  2685.  
  2686. 623
  2687. 01:09:10,563 --> 01:09:13,314
  2688. We can hold the Hot Gates.
  2689.  
  2690. 624
  2691. 01:09:13,482 --> 01:09:15,608
  2692. "We can win."
  2693.  
  2694. 625
  2695. 01:09:23,200 --> 01:09:24,951
  2696. Dawn.
  2697.  
  2698. 626
  2699. 01:09:25,578 --> 01:09:29,581
  2700. Whips crack. Barbarians howl.
  2701.  
  2702. 627
  2703. 01:09:29,748 --> 01:09:33,668
  2704. Those behind cry, ' "Forward!'".
  2705.  
  2706. 628
  2707. 01:09:35,546 --> 01:09:39,340
  2708. Those in front cry, "Back!"
  2709.  
  2710. 629
  2711. 01:09:45,431 --> 01:09:47,974
  2712. Our eyes bear witness
  2713. to the grotesque spectacle...
  2714.  
  2715. 630
  2716. 01:09:48,142 --> 01:09:52,270
  2717. coughed forth from the darkest corner
  2718. of Xerxes' empire.
  2719.  
  2720. 631
  2721. 01:10:42,488 --> 01:10:43,988
  2722. When muscle failed...
  2723.  
  2724. 632
  2725. 01:10:44,448 --> 01:10:47,116
  2726. they turned to their magic.
  2727.  
  2728. 633
  2729. 01:10:48,160 --> 01:10:52,956
  2730. One hundred nations descend upon us,
  2731. the armies of all Asia.
  2732.  
  2733. 634
  2734. 01:10:53,123 --> 01:10:57,585
  2735. Funneled into this narrow corridor,
  2736. their numbers count for nothing.
  2737.  
  2738. 635
  2739. 01:11:31,954 --> 01:11:33,913
  2740. They fall by the hundreds.
  2741.  
  2742. 636
  2743. 01:11:34,081 --> 01:11:39,711
  2744. We send the severed bodies and the
  2745. fragile hearts back to Xerxes' feet.
  2746.  
  2747. 637
  2748. 01:11:56,312 --> 01:12:00,481
  2749. King Xerxes is displeased
  2750. with his generals.
  2751.  
  2752. 638
  2753. 01:12:00,649 --> 01:12:03,234
  2754. He disciplines them.
  2755.  
  2756. 639
  2757. 01:12:20,085 --> 01:12:24,505
  2758. Xerxes dispatches his monsters
  2759. from half the world away.
  2760.  
  2761. 640
  2762. 01:12:35,476 --> 01:12:37,602
  2763. They"re clumsy beasts...
  2764.  
  2765. 641
  2766. 01:12:37,770 --> 01:12:40,104
  2767. and the piled Persian dead are slippery.
  2768.  
  2769. 642
  2770. 01:13:16,558 --> 01:13:18,976
  2771. - You still here?
  2772. - Somebody's gotta watch your back.
  2773.  
  2774. 643
  2775. 01:13:19,144 --> 01:13:20,770
  2776. Not now, I"m a little busy.
  2777.  
  2778. 644
  2779. 01:14:01,019 --> 01:14:03,563
  2780. Regroup!
  2781.  
  2782. 645
  2783. 01:14:06,775 --> 01:14:08,401
  2784. Astinos!
  2785.  
  2786. 646
  2787. 01:14:08,610 --> 01:14:10,319
  2788. My son!
  2789.  
  2790. 647
  2791. 01:14:19,246 --> 01:14:20,872
  2792. Astinos!
  2793.  
  2794. 648
  2795. 01:14:21,039 --> 01:14:23,833
  2796. No!
  2797.  
  2798. 649
  2799. 01:14:47,065 --> 01:14:49,233
  2800. Day wears on.
  2801.  
  2802. 650
  2803. 01:14:49,568 --> 01:14:51,736
  2804. We lose few...
  2805.  
  2806. 651
  2807. 01:14:51,904 --> 01:14:55,114
  2808. but each felled is a friend,
  2809. or dearest blood.
  2810.  
  2811. 652
  2812. 01:14:57,326 --> 01:15:01,245
  2813. And upon seeing the headless body
  2814. of his own young son...
  2815.  
  2816. 653
  2817. 01:15:01,413 --> 01:15:03,247
  2818. the captain breaks rank.
  2819.  
  2820. 654
  2821. 01:15:03,415 --> 01:15:06,876
  2822. He goes wild, blood-drunk.
  2823.  
  2824. 655
  2825. 01:15:31,485 --> 01:15:33,986
  2826. The captain's cries of pain
  2827. at the loss of his son...
  2828.  
  2829. 656
  2830. 01:15:34,154 --> 01:15:37,907
  2831. are more frightening to the enemy
  2832. than the deepest battle drums.
  2833.  
  2834. 657
  2835. 01:15:38,075 --> 01:15:42,078
  2836. It takes three men to restrain him
  2837. and bring him back to our own.
  2838.  
  2839. 658
  2840. 01:15:42,412 --> 01:15:44,747
  2841. The day is ours.
  2842.  
  2843. 659
  2844. 01:15:45,123 --> 01:15:47,792
  2845. No songs are sung.
  2846.  
  2847. 660
  2848. 01:16:27,916 --> 01:16:32,503
  2849. Your gods were cruel to shape you so,
  2850. friend Ephialtes.
  2851.  
  2852. 661
  2853. 01:16:34,923 --> 01:16:36,215
  2854. The Spartans, too...
  2855.  
  2856. 662
  2857. 01:16:36,967 --> 01:16:39,844
  2858. were cruel to reject you.
  2859.  
  2860. 663
  2861. 01:16:42,681 --> 01:16:45,141
  2862. But I am kind.
  2863.  
  2864. 664
  2865. 01:16:51,648 --> 01:16:53,774
  2866. Everything you could ever desire...
  2867.  
  2868. 665
  2869. 01:16:55,027 --> 01:16:56,777
  2870. every happiness you can imagine...
  2871.  
  2872. 666
  2873. 01:16:58,989 --> 01:17:03,576
  2874. every pleasure your fellow Greeks
  2875. and your false gods have denied you...
  2876.  
  2877. 667
  2878. 01:17:04,369 --> 01:17:06,662
  2879. I will grant you.
  2880.  
  2881. 668
  2882. 01:17:07,914 --> 01:17:10,333
  2883. For I am kind.
  2884.  
  2885. 669
  2886. 01:17:24,264 --> 01:17:27,558
  2887. Embrace me as your king
  2888. and as your god.
  2889.  
  2890. 670
  2891. 01:17:28,727 --> 01:17:30,394
  2892. Yes.
  2893.  
  2894. 671
  2895. 01:17:31,897 --> 01:17:36,692
  2896. Lead my soldiers to the hidden path
  2897. that empties behind the cursed Spartans...
  2898.  
  2899. 672
  2900. 01:17:36,860 --> 01:17:39,111
  2901. and your joys will be endless.
  2902.  
  2903. 673
  2904. 01:17:47,579 --> 01:17:50,748
  2905. Yes! I want it all.
  2906.  
  2907. 674
  2908. 01:17:51,166 --> 01:17:54,752
  2909. Wealth. Women.
  2910.  
  2911. 675
  2912. 01:17:56,755 --> 01:17:58,422
  2913. And one more thing...
  2914.  
  2915. 676
  2916. 01:18:01,593 --> 01:18:04,261
  2917. I want a uniform.
  2918.  
  2919. 677
  2920. 01:18:08,767 --> 01:18:10,476
  2921. Done.
  2922.  
  2923. 678
  2924. 01:18:12,104 --> 01:18:13,813
  2925. You will find...
  2926.  
  2927. 679
  2928. 01:18:14,439 --> 01:18:16,357
  2929. I am kind.
  2930.  
  2931. 680
  2932. 01:18:17,484 --> 01:18:21,737
  2933. Unlike the cruel Leonidas,
  2934. who demanded that you stand...
  2935.  
  2936. 681
  2937. 01:18:23,824 --> 01:18:25,533
  2938. I require only...
  2939.  
  2940. 682
  2941. 01:18:26,284 --> 01:18:27,702
  2942. that you kneel.
  2943.  
  2944. 683
  2945. 01:18:55,355 --> 01:18:57,314
  2946. Beautiful night.
  2947.  
  2948. 684
  2949. 01:18:58,734 --> 01:19:02,737
  2950. Yes, but I did not ask you here
  2951. for small talk, Theron.
  2952.  
  2953. 685
  2954. 01:19:03,363 --> 01:19:05,489
  2955. You can be sure of that.
  2956.  
  2957. 686
  2958. 01:19:06,867 --> 01:19:09,535
  2959. You never spared words with me.
  2960.  
  2961. 687
  2962. 01:19:10,120 --> 01:19:13,372
  2963. Can I offer you something?
  2964. A drink, perhaps?
  2965.  
  2966. 688
  2967. 01:19:13,540 --> 01:19:15,374
  2968. Is it poison?
  2969.  
  2970. 689
  2971. 01:19:15,792 --> 01:19:18,544
  2972. I"m sorry to disappoint you,
  2973. it's only water.
  2974.  
  2975. 690
  2976. 01:19:28,346 --> 01:19:31,515
  2977. I"m told it's been arranged for you
  2978. to go before the council.
  2979.  
  2980. 691
  2981. 01:19:32,184 --> 01:19:33,893
  2982. Yes.
  2983.  
  2984. 692
  2985. 01:19:34,102 --> 01:19:37,438
  2986. I need your help in winning votes
  2987. to send the army north to our king.
  2988.  
  2989. 693
  2990. 01:19:38,023 --> 01:19:39,648
  2991. Yes.
  2992.  
  2993. 694
  2994. 01:19:40,317 --> 01:19:42,860
  2995. I can see it,
  2996. the two of us standing together.
  2997.  
  2998. 695
  2999. 01:19:43,028 --> 01:19:47,406
  3000. Me, politician. You, warrior.
  3001. Our voices as one.
  3002.  
  3003. 696
  3004. 01:19:48,742 --> 01:19:50,201
  3005. But why would I want to do that?
  3006.  
  3007. 697
  3008. 01:19:51,203 --> 01:19:55,164
  3009. It proves you care for a king who right now
  3010. fights for the very water we drink.
  3011.  
  3012. 698
  3013. 01:19:55,499 --> 01:19:57,082
  3014. True.
  3015.  
  3016. 699
  3017. 01:19:57,459 --> 01:20:00,085
  3018. But this is politics, not war.
  3019.  
  3020. 700
  3021. 01:20:00,378 --> 01:20:01,921
  3022. Leonidas is an idealist.
  3023.  
  3024. 701
  3025. 01:20:02,339 --> 01:20:06,258
  3026. I know your kind too well. You send men
  3027. to slaughter for your own gain.
  3028.  
  3029. 702
  3030. 01:20:06,426 --> 01:20:11,347
  3031. Your husband, our king,
  3032. has taken 300 of our finest to slaughter.
  3033.  
  3034. 703
  3035. 01:20:11,515 --> 01:20:16,143
  3036. He's broken our laws
  3037. and left without the council's consent.
  3038.  
  3039. 704
  3040. 01:20:16,645 --> 01:20:19,647
  3041. - I"m simply a realist.
  3042. - You"re an opportunist.
  3043.  
  3044. 705
  3045. 01:20:20,607 --> 01:20:24,902
  3046. You"re as foolish as Leonidas if you think
  3047. men don't have a price in this world.
  3048.  
  3049. 706
  3050. 01:20:25,070 --> 01:20:29,657
  3051. All men are not created equal.
  3052. That's the Spartan code, my little queen.
  3053.  
  3054. 707
  3055. 01:20:33,328 --> 01:20:35,746
  3056. I admire your passion.
  3057.  
  3058. 708
  3059. 01:20:37,082 --> 01:20:38,791
  3060. But don't think that you...
  3061.  
  3062. 709
  3063. 01:20:39,251 --> 01:20:41,585
  3064. a woman, even a queen...
  3065.  
  3066. 710
  3067. 01:20:41,753 --> 01:20:45,673
  3068. can walk into the council chamber
  3069. and sway the minds of men.
  3070.  
  3071. 711
  3072. 01:20:45,841 --> 01:20:48,259
  3073. I own that chamber...
  3074.  
  3075. 712
  3076. 01:20:48,426 --> 01:20:50,511
  3077. as if it were built with these hands.
  3078.  
  3079. 713
  3080. 01:20:54,975 --> 01:20:58,519
  3081. I could crush
  3082. the life out of you right now.
  3083.  
  3084. 714
  3085. 01:20:59,604 --> 01:21:03,274
  3086. You will go before the council,
  3087. but your words will fall on deaf ears.
  3088.  
  3089. 715
  3090. 01:21:03,441 --> 01:21:09,196
  3091. Leonidas will receive no reinforcements,
  3092. and if he returns, without my help...
  3093.  
  3094. 716
  3095. 01:21:09,364 --> 01:21:12,324
  3096. he will go to jail or worse.
  3097.  
  3098. 717
  3099. 01:21:16,079 --> 01:21:17,538
  3100. Do you love your Sparta?
  3101.  
  3102. 718
  3103. 01:21:18,039 --> 01:21:19,748
  3104. Yes.
  3105.  
  3106. 719
  3107. 01:21:19,916 --> 01:21:22,167
  3108. - And your king?
  3109. - I do.
  3110.  
  3111. 720
  3112. 01:21:28,008 --> 01:21:31,719
  3113. Your husband fights for his land
  3114. and his love.
  3115.  
  3116. 721
  3117. 01:21:32,387 --> 01:21:34,680
  3118. What do you have to offer...
  3119.  
  3120. 722
  3121. 01:21:35,473 --> 01:21:38,434
  3122. in return for my word
  3123. that I'll help you send our army north?
  3124.  
  3125. 723
  3126. 01:21:42,397 --> 01:21:45,065
  3127. What does a realist want with his queen?
  3128.  
  3129. 724
  3130. 01:21:49,654 --> 01:21:51,405
  3131. I think you know.
  3132.  
  3133. 725
  3134. 01:22:05,837 --> 01:22:08,547
  3135. This will not be over quickly.
  3136.  
  3137. 726
  3138. 01:22:09,591 --> 01:22:12,092
  3139. You will not enjoy this.
  3140.  
  3141. 727
  3142. 01:22:12,636 --> 01:22:14,887
  3143. I"m not your king.
  3144.  
  3145. 728
  3146. 01:22:39,704 --> 01:22:41,497
  3147. Dilios.
  3148.  
  3149. 729
  3150. 01:22:43,500 --> 01:22:47,544
  3151. I trust that scratch
  3152. hasn't made you useless?
  3153.  
  3154. 730
  3155. 01:22:47,712 --> 01:22:50,714
  3156. Hardly, my lord. It's just an eye.
  3157.  
  3158. 731
  3159. 01:22:50,882 --> 01:22:54,093
  3160. The gods saw fit to grace me
  3161. with a spare.
  3162.  
  3163. 732
  3164. 01:22:55,971 --> 01:22:57,888
  3165. My captain?
  3166.  
  3167. 733
  3168. 01:22:59,224 --> 01:23:03,018
  3169. Curses the gods and mourns alone.
  3170.  
  3171. 734
  3172. 01:23:04,980 --> 01:23:06,939
  3173. Leonidas!
  3174.  
  3175. 735
  3176. 01:23:08,149 --> 01:23:11,151
  3177. We are undone.
  3178. Undone, I tell you. Destroyed.
  3179.  
  3180. 736
  3181. 01:23:11,319 --> 01:23:12,736
  3182. Daxos, calm yourself.
  3183.  
  3184. 737
  3185. 01:23:12,904 --> 01:23:16,532
  3186. Our hunchback traitor led Xerxes' Immortals
  3187. to the hidden goat path behind us.
  3188.  
  3189. 738
  3190. 01:23:16,908 --> 01:23:19,743
  3191. The Phocians you posted there
  3192. were scattered without a fight.
  3193.  
  3194. 739
  3195. 01:23:19,911 --> 01:23:22,526
  3196. This battle is over, Leonidas.
  3197.  
  3198. 740
  3199. 01:23:22,539 --> 01:23:25,165
  3200. This battle is over
  3201. when I say it is over.
  3202.  
  3203. 741
  3204. 01:23:25,333 --> 01:23:29,712
  3205. By morning, the Immortals will surround us.
  3206. The Hot Gates will fall.
  3207.  
  3208. 742
  3209. 01:23:30,338 --> 01:23:34,717
  3210. Spartans! Prepare for glory!
  3211.  
  3212. 743
  3213. 01:23:34,884 --> 01:23:38,095
  3214. Glory? Have you gone mad?
  3215.  
  3216. 744
  3217. 01:23:38,263 --> 01:23:39,805
  3218. There is no glory to be had now.
  3219.  
  3220. 745
  3221. 01:23:40,432 --> 01:23:44,018
  3222. Only retreat or surrender. Or death.
  3223.  
  3224. 746
  3225. 01:23:44,185 --> 01:23:47,354
  3226. Well, that's an easy choice
  3227. for us, Arcadian.
  3228.  
  3229. 747
  3230. 01:23:47,522 --> 01:23:53,027
  3231. Spartans never retreat.
  3232. Spartans never surrender.
  3233.  
  3234. 748
  3235. 01:23:53,611 --> 01:23:55,738
  3236. Go spread the word.
  3237.  
  3238. 749
  3239. 01:23:55,947 --> 01:23:59,616
  3240. Let every Greek assembled
  3241. know the truth of this.
  3242.  
  3243. 750
  3244. 01:23:59,784 --> 01:24:02,619
  3245. Let each among them
  3246. search his own soul.
  3247.  
  3248. 751
  3249. 01:24:04,330 --> 01:24:08,459
  3250. And while you"re at it, search your own.
  3251.  
  3252. 752
  3253. 01:24:15,967 --> 01:24:18,260
  3254. My men will leave with me.
  3255.  
  3256. 753
  3257. 01:24:23,600 --> 01:24:25,809
  3258. Godspeed, Leonidas.
  3259.  
  3260. 754
  3261. 01:24:32,150 --> 01:24:33,734
  3262. Children!
  3263.  
  3264. 755
  3265. 01:24:34,694 --> 01:24:36,028
  3266. Children.
  3267.  
  3268. 756
  3269. 01:24:37,072 --> 01:24:39,073
  3270. Gather round.
  3271.  
  3272. 757
  3273. 01:24:40,950 --> 01:24:44,203
  3274. No retreat, no surrender.
  3275.  
  3276. 758
  3277. 01:24:44,370 --> 01:24:48,248
  3278. That is Spartan law.
  3279.  
  3280. 759
  3281. 01:24:48,500 --> 01:24:53,545
  3282. And by Spartan law,
  3283. we will stand and fight...
  3284.  
  3285. 760
  3286. 01:24:53,713 --> 01:24:55,714
  3287. and die.
  3288.  
  3289. 761
  3290. 01:24:59,177 --> 01:25:02,679
  3291. A new age has begun.
  3292.  
  3293. 762
  3294. 01:25:04,390 --> 01:25:07,518
  3295. An age of freedom.
  3296.  
  3297. 763
  3298. 01:25:08,603 --> 01:25:12,272
  3299. And all will know that 300 Spartans...
  3300.  
  3301. 764
  3302. 01:25:12,440 --> 01:25:15,692
  3303. gave their last breath to defend it.
  3304.  
  3305. 765
  3306. 01:25:36,005 --> 01:25:37,756
  3307. My friend.
  3308.  
  3309. 766
  3310. 01:25:41,302 --> 01:25:46,890
  3311. I have lived my entire life
  3312. without regret until now.
  3313.  
  3314. 767
  3315. 01:25:50,228 --> 01:25:56,191
  3316. It's not that my son
  3317. gave up his life for his country.
  3318.  
  3319. 768
  3320. 01:25:58,069 --> 01:26:01,947
  3321. It's just that I never told him
  3322. that I loved him the most.
  3323.  
  3324. 769
  3325. 01:26:03,575 --> 01:26:06,410
  3326. That he stood by me with honor.
  3327.  
  3328. 770
  3329. 01:26:07,871 --> 01:26:10,789
  3330. That he was all that was best in me.
  3331.  
  3332. 771
  3333. 01:26:19,924 --> 01:26:22,426
  3334. My heart is broken for your loss.
  3335.  
  3336. 772
  3337. 01:26:23,178 --> 01:26:24,887
  3338. Heart?
  3339.  
  3340. 773
  3341. 01:26:29,934 --> 01:26:33,061
  3342. I have filled my heart...
  3343.  
  3344. 774
  3345. 01:26:33,229 --> 01:26:34,938
  3346. with hate.
  3347.  
  3348. 775
  3349. 01:26:39,110 --> 01:26:40,777
  3350. Good.
  3351.  
  3352. 776
  3353. 01:26:49,913 --> 01:26:51,747
  3354. Dilios...
  3355.  
  3356. 777
  3357. 01:26:53,458 --> 01:26:55,584
  3358. let's take a walk.
  3359.  
  3360. 778
  3361. 01:26:57,045 --> 01:26:59,129
  3362. Yes, my lord.
  3363.  
  3364. 779
  3365. 01:27:01,507 --> 01:27:04,176
  3366. But, sire, I am fit and ready for battle.
  3367.  
  3368. 780
  3369. 01:27:04,344 --> 01:27:07,471
  3370. That you are, one of the finest.
  3371.  
  3372. 781
  3373. 01:27:07,805 --> 01:27:11,391
  3374. But you have another talent
  3375. unlike any other Spartan.
  3376.  
  3377. 782
  3378. 01:27:14,103 --> 01:27:17,522
  3379. You will deliver my final orders
  3380. to the council...
  3381.  
  3382. 783
  3383. 01:27:17,690 --> 01:27:20,192
  3384. with force and verve.
  3385.  
  3386. 784
  3387. 01:27:22,695 --> 01:27:24,988
  3388. Tell them our story.
  3389.  
  3390. 785
  3391. 01:27:25,156 --> 01:27:29,660
  3392. Make every Greek know
  3393. what happened here.
  3394.  
  3395. 786
  3396. 01:27:30,495 --> 01:27:33,163
  3397. You'll have a grand tale to tell.
  3398.  
  3399. 787
  3400. 01:27:34,958 --> 01:27:36,667
  3401. A tale of victory.
  3402.  
  3403. 788
  3404. 01:27:37,335 --> 01:27:38,877
  3405. Victory.
  3406.  
  3407. 789
  3408. 01:27:42,924 --> 01:27:44,925
  3409. Yes, my lord.
  3410.  
  3411. 790
  3412. 01:27:50,598 --> 01:27:52,975
  3413. Sire, any message...?
  3414.  
  3415. 791
  3416. 01:27:55,853 --> 01:27:57,187
  3417. For the queen?
  3418.  
  3419. 792
  3420. 01:28:19,669 --> 01:28:22,087
  3421. None that need be spoken.
  3422.  
  3423. 793
  3424. 01:28:37,228 --> 01:28:39,604
  3425. Hundreds leave.
  3426.  
  3427. 794
  3428. 01:28:40,231 --> 01:28:42,691
  3429. A handful stay.
  3430.  
  3431. 795
  3432. 01:28:47,864 --> 01:28:50,490
  3433. Only one looks back.
  3434.  
  3435. 796
  3436. 01:29:00,793 --> 01:29:03,003
  3437. Spartans!
  3438.  
  3439. 797
  3440. 01:29:04,088 --> 01:29:07,257
  3441. Ready your breakfast and eat hearty...
  3442.  
  3443. 798
  3444. 01:29:07,425 --> 01:29:11,345
  3445. for tonight we dine in hell!
  3446.  
  3447. 799
  3448. 01:29:20,229 --> 01:29:22,898
  3449. May I give the floor now...
  3450.  
  3451. 800
  3452. 01:29:23,066 --> 01:29:27,486
  3453. to the wife of Leonidas
  3454. and queen of Sparta.
  3455.  
  3456. 801
  3457. 01:29:39,207 --> 01:29:40,957
  3458. - What's this?
  3459. - This is nothing.
  3460.  
  3461. 802
  3462. 01:29:41,125 --> 01:29:42,959
  3463. Councilmen...
  3464.  
  3465. 803
  3466. 01:29:43,127 --> 01:29:46,880
  3467. I stand before you
  3468. not only as your queen.
  3469.  
  3470. 804
  3471. 01:29:47,757 --> 01:29:50,467
  3472. I come to you as a mother.
  3473.  
  3474. 805
  3475. 01:29:51,761 --> 01:29:54,137
  3476. I come to you as a wife.
  3477.  
  3478. 806
  3479. 01:29:55,973 --> 01:29:58,475
  3480. I come to you as a Spartan woman.
  3481.  
  3482. 807
  3483. 01:30:03,481 --> 01:30:06,608
  3484. I come to you with great humility.
  3485.  
  3486. 808
  3487. 01:30:10,029 --> 01:30:12,447
  3488. I am not here to represent Leonidas.
  3489.  
  3490. 809
  3491. 01:30:12,615 --> 01:30:15,367
  3492. His actions speak louder
  3493. than my words ever could.
  3494.  
  3495. 810
  3496. 01:30:15,701 --> 01:30:18,120
  3497. I am here for all those voices
  3498. which cannot be heard.
  3499.  
  3500. 811
  3501. 01:30:18,287 --> 01:30:20,831
  3502. Mothers, daughters, fathers, sons.
  3503.  
  3504. 812
  3505. 01:30:20,998 --> 01:30:23,959
  3506. Three hundred families
  3507. that bleed for our rights...
  3508.  
  3509. 813
  3510. 01:30:24,377 --> 01:30:27,587
  3511. and for the very principles
  3512. this room was built upon.
  3513.  
  3514. 814
  3515. 01:30:28,172 --> 01:30:30,298
  3516. We are at war, gentlemen.
  3517.  
  3518. 815
  3519. 01:30:30,716 --> 01:30:33,260
  3520. We must send the entire Spartan army
  3521. to aid our king...
  3522.  
  3523. 816
  3524. 01:30:33,428 --> 01:30:36,513
  3525. in the preservation of not just
  3526. ourselves, but of our children.
  3527.  
  3528. 817
  3529. 01:30:37,098 --> 01:30:40,225
  3530. Send the army
  3531. for the preservation of liberty.
  3532.  
  3533. 818
  3534. 01:30:40,393 --> 01:30:42,727
  3535. Send it for justice.
  3536.  
  3537. 819
  3538. 01:30:42,895 --> 01:30:44,521
  3539. Send it for law and order.
  3540.  
  3541. 820
  3542. 01:30:45,064 --> 01:30:47,274
  3543. Send it for reason.
  3544.  
  3545. 821
  3546. 01:30:47,442 --> 01:30:51,528
  3547. But most importantly,
  3548. send our army for hope.
  3549.  
  3550. 822
  3551. 01:30:51,696 --> 01:30:55,282
  3552. Hope that a king and his men have not
  3553. been wasted to the pages of history.
  3554.  
  3555. 823
  3556. 01:30:56,117 --> 01:30:59,536
  3557. That their courage bonds us together.
  3558.  
  3559. 824
  3560. 01:30:59,871 --> 01:31:03,039
  3561. That we are made stronger
  3562. by their actions...
  3563.  
  3564. 825
  3565. 01:31:04,041 --> 01:31:08,170
  3566. and that your choices today
  3567. reflect their bravery.
  3568.  
  3569. 826
  3570. 01:31:10,089 --> 01:31:11,756
  3571. Three hundred.
  3572.  
  3573. 827
  3574. 01:31:14,093 --> 01:31:15,927
  3575. We must send them.
  3576.  
  3577. 828
  3578. 01:31:19,724 --> 01:31:21,558
  3579. Moving...
  3580.  
  3581. 829
  3582. 01:31:21,893 --> 01:31:24,769
  3583. eloquent, passionate.
  3584.  
  3585. 830
  3586. 01:31:25,188 --> 01:31:29,357
  3587. But it doesn't change the fact
  3588. that your husband has brought war upon us.
  3589.  
  3590. 831
  3591. 01:31:29,525 --> 01:31:31,943
  3592. You are wrong.
  3593. Xerxes brought it forth...
  3594.  
  3595. 832
  3596. 01:31:32,111 --> 01:31:34,571
  3597. and before that,
  3598. his father Darius at Marathon.
  3599.  
  3600. 833
  3601. 01:31:34,739 --> 01:31:36,490
  3602. The Persians will not stop...
  3603.  
  3604. 834
  3605. 01:31:36,657 --> 01:31:40,035
  3606. until the only shelter we will find
  3607. is rubble and chaos.
  3608.  
  3609. 835
  3610. 01:31:40,411 --> 01:31:44,164
  3611. This chamber needs no
  3612. history lesson, my queen.
  3613.  
  3614. 836
  3615. 01:31:44,665 --> 01:31:46,875
  3616. Then what is the lesson
  3617. you would like to leave?
  3618.  
  3619. 837
  3620. 01:31:47,043 --> 01:31:49,127
  3621. Shall I begin to enumerate all of them?
  3622.  
  3623. 838
  3624. 01:31:49,545 --> 01:31:52,964
  3625. Honor. Duty. Glory.
  3626.  
  3627. 839
  3628. 01:31:53,257 --> 01:31:58,261
  3629. You speak of honor, duty and glory?
  3630.  
  3631. 840
  3632. 01:31:59,597 --> 01:32:00,805
  3633. But what of adultery?
  3634.  
  3635. 841
  3636. 01:32:00,973 --> 01:32:03,433
  3637. - How dare you.
  3638. - How dare I?
  3639.  
  3640. 842
  3641. 01:32:03,893 --> 01:32:06,895
  3642. Watch her carefully.
  3643.  
  3644. 843
  3645. 01:32:07,063 --> 01:32:10,023
  3646. She is a trickster in true form.
  3647.  
  3648. 844
  3649. 01:32:10,191 --> 01:32:13,360
  3650. Do not play with the members
  3651. of this sacred chamber, my queen.
  3652.  
  3653. 845
  3654. 01:32:13,528 --> 01:32:16,613
  3655. Just hours ago,
  3656. you offered yourself to me.
  3657.  
  3658. 846
  3659. 01:32:16,781 --> 01:32:21,243
  3660. Were I a weaker man,
  3661. I would have her scent on me still.
  3662.  
  3663. 847
  3664. 01:32:21,410 --> 01:32:24,412
  3665. - This is outrage.
  3666. - Oh, the hypocrite speaks!
  3667.  
  3668. 848
  3669. 01:32:24,580 --> 01:32:27,582
  3670. Did you not receive a similar payment,
  3671. which you took...
  3672.  
  3673. 849
  3674. 01:32:27,750 --> 01:32:30,961
  3675. in exchange for her having an audience
  3676. with these noble men?
  3677.  
  3678. 850
  3679. 01:32:31,128 --> 01:32:32,921
  3680. - That is a lie.
  3681. - Is it?
  3682.  
  3683. 851
  3684. 01:32:33,089 --> 01:32:36,841
  3685. Was he not, by your invitation,
  3686. asked to come to the king's bedchamber?
  3687.  
  3688. 852
  3689. 01:32:37,385 --> 01:32:42,013
  3690. The very bed where you attempted
  3691. to negotiate with me so vigorously?
  3692.  
  3693. 853
  3694. 01:32:44,642 --> 01:32:48,144
  3695. You look shocked.
  3696. A bribe of the flesh, gentlemen...
  3697.  
  3698. 854
  3699. 01:32:48,312 --> 01:32:51,606
  3700. while her husband
  3701. promotes anarchy and war.
  3702.  
  3703. 855
  3704. 01:32:54,527 --> 01:32:55,735
  3705. He speaks truth.
  3706.  
  3707. 856
  3708. 01:32:56,320 --> 01:32:59,531
  3709. Words escape
  3710. even the most cunning tongue...
  3711.  
  3712. 857
  3713. 01:32:59,699 --> 01:33:01,783
  3714. my little whore queen.
  3715.  
  3716. 858
  3717. 01:33:06,497 --> 01:33:08,331
  3718. What queen-like behavior.
  3719.  
  3720. 859
  3721. 01:33:10,042 --> 01:33:13,169
  3722. Remove her from this chamber
  3723. before she infects us further...
  3724.  
  3725. 860
  3726. 01:33:13,337 --> 01:33:16,339
  3727. with her inglorious and shabby self.
  3728.  
  3729. 861
  3730. 01:33:23,180 --> 01:33:24,764
  3731. This will not be over quickly.
  3732.  
  3733. 862
  3734. 01:33:26,100 --> 01:33:29,644
  3735. You will not enjoy this.
  3736. I am not your queen.
  3737.  
  3738. 863
  3739. 01:33:51,792 --> 01:33:53,710
  3740. Traitor.
  3741.  
  3742. 864
  3743. 01:33:54,253 --> 01:33:59,049
  3744. Traitor! Traitor! Traitor!
  3745.  
  3746. 865
  3747. 01:33:59,342 --> 01:34:01,593
  3748. Traitor!
  3749.  
  3750. 866
  3751. 01:34:38,631 --> 01:34:44,636
  3752. Leonidas, my compliments
  3753. and congratulations.
  3754.  
  3755. 867
  3756. 01:34:44,804 --> 01:34:48,473
  3757. You surely have turned calamity
  3758. into victory.
  3759.  
  3760. 868
  3761. 01:34:48,641 --> 01:34:51,643
  3762. Despite your insufferable arrogance...
  3763.  
  3764. 869
  3765. 01:34:51,811 --> 01:34:55,980
  3766. the god-king has come
  3767. to admire Spartan valor and fighting skill.
  3768.  
  3769. 870
  3770. 01:34:56,732 --> 01:34:58,108
  3771. You will make a mighty ally.
  3772.  
  3773. 871
  3774. 01:34:58,275 --> 01:34:59,984
  3775. Yield, Leonidas.
  3776.  
  3777. 872
  3778. 01:35:01,153 --> 01:35:04,030
  3779. Use your reason. Think of your men.
  3780.  
  3781. 873
  3782. 01:35:06,867 --> 01:35:08,493
  3783. I beg you.
  3784.  
  3785. 874
  3786. 01:35:09,078 --> 01:35:11,037
  3787. Listen to your fellow Greek.
  3788.  
  3789. 875
  3790. 01:35:11,205 --> 01:35:14,916
  3791. He can attest
  3792. to the divine one's generosity.
  3793.  
  3794. 876
  3795. 01:35:15,084 --> 01:35:19,546
  3796. Despite your several insults,
  3797. despite your horrid blasphemies...
  3798.  
  3799. 877
  3800. 01:35:20,464 --> 01:35:23,633
  3801. the lord of hosts
  3802. is prepared to forgive all...
  3803.  
  3804. 878
  3805. 01:35:23,884 --> 01:35:26,928
  3806. and more, to reward your service.
  3807.  
  3808. 879
  3809. 01:35:27,179 --> 01:35:28,513
  3810. You fight for your lands.
  3811.  
  3812. 880
  3813. 01:35:29,223 --> 01:35:31,057
  3814. Keep them.
  3815.  
  3816. 881
  3817. 01:35:31,767 --> 01:35:33,727
  3818. You fight for Sparta.
  3819.  
  3820. 882
  3821. 01:35:33,894 --> 01:35:37,897
  3822. She will be wealthier and more powerful
  3823. than ever before.
  3824.  
  3825. 883
  3826. 01:35:38,107 --> 01:35:40,024
  3827. You fight for your kingship.
  3828.  
  3829. 884
  3830. 01:35:40,943 --> 01:35:43,903
  3831. You will be proclaimed warlord
  3832. of all Greece...
  3833.  
  3834. 885
  3835. 01:35:44,071 --> 01:35:48,366
  3836. answerable only
  3837. to the one true master of the world.
  3838.  
  3839. 886
  3840. 01:35:48,743 --> 01:35:53,496
  3841. Leonidas, your victory will be complete...
  3842.  
  3843. 887
  3844. 01:35:53,664 --> 01:35:56,249
  3845. if you but lay down your arms...
  3846.  
  3847. 888
  3848. 01:35:56,417 --> 01:35:59,586
  3849. and kneel to holy Xerxes.
  3850.  
  3851. 889
  3852. 01:36:30,075 --> 01:36:35,038
  3853. It's been more than 30 years
  3854. since the wolf in the winter cold.
  3855.  
  3856. 890
  3857. 01:36:35,206 --> 01:36:39,751
  3858. And now, as then,
  3859. it's not fear that grips him...
  3860.  
  3861. 891
  3862. 01:36:39,919 --> 01:36:45,089
  3863. only restlessness.
  3864. A heightened sense of things.
  3865.  
  3866. 892
  3867. 01:36:45,883 --> 01:36:50,678
  3868. The seaborne breeze coolly kissing
  3869. the sweat at his chest and neck.
  3870.  
  3871. 893
  3872. 01:36:50,846 --> 01:36:52,347
  3873. Gulls cawing...
  3874.  
  3875. 894
  3876. 01:36:52,515 --> 01:36:56,726
  3877. complaining even as they feast
  3878. on the thousands of floating dead.
  3879.  
  3880. 895
  3881. 01:36:58,354 --> 01:37:03,399
  3882. The steady breathing
  3883. of the 300 at his back...
  3884.  
  3885. 896
  3886. 01:37:04,193 --> 01:37:07,654
  3887. ready to die for him
  3888. without a moment's pause.
  3889.  
  3890. 897
  3891. 01:37:10,241 --> 01:37:11,616
  3892. Every one of them...
  3893.  
  3894. 898
  3895. 01:37:13,077 --> 01:37:15,036
  3896. ready to die.
  3897.  
  3898. 899
  3899. 01:37:30,553 --> 01:37:33,471
  3900. His helmet is stifling.
  3901.  
  3902. 900
  3903. 01:37:54,159 --> 01:37:56,995
  3904. His shield is heavy.
  3905.  
  3906. 901
  3907. 01:38:04,628 --> 01:38:05,962
  3908. Your spear.
  3909.  
  3910. 902
  3911. 01:38:14,805 --> 01:38:16,222
  3912. You there...
  3913.  
  3914. 903
  3915. 01:38:16,640 --> 01:38:18,641
  3916. Ephialtes.
  3917.  
  3918. 904
  3919. 01:38:23,772 --> 01:38:26,024
  3920. May you live forever.
  3921.  
  3922. 905
  3923. 01:38:33,449 --> 01:38:35,742
  3924. Leonidas, your spear.
  3925.  
  3926. 906
  3927. 01:39:42,977 --> 01:39:44,560
  3928. Stelios!
  3929.  
  3930. 907
  3931. 01:39:54,571 --> 01:39:56,197
  3932. Slaughter them!
  3933.  
  3934. 908
  3935. 01:39:59,576 --> 01:40:01,160
  3936. His helmet was stifling.
  3937.  
  3938. 909
  3939. 01:40:01,328 --> 01:40:04,455
  3940. It narrowed his vision,
  3941. and he must see far.
  3942.  
  3943. 910
  3944. 01:40:05,749 --> 01:40:09,627
  3945. His shield was heavy.
  3946. It threw him off balance...
  3947.  
  3948. 911
  3949. 01:40:09,795 --> 01:40:13,464
  3950. and his target is far away.
  3951.  
  3952. 912
  3953. 01:41:18,030 --> 01:41:22,617
  3954. The old ones say we Spartans
  3955. are descended from Hercules himself.
  3956.  
  3957. 913
  3958. 01:41:24,078 --> 01:41:28,414
  3959. Bold Leonidas gives testament
  3960. to our bloodline.
  3961.  
  3962. 914
  3963. 01:41:28,582 --> 01:41:32,710
  3964. His roar is long and loud.
  3965.  
  3966. 915
  3967. 01:42:02,825 --> 01:42:04,408
  3968. My king.
  3969.  
  3970. 916
  3971. 01:42:16,672 --> 01:42:20,299
  3972. It's an honor to die at your side.
  3973.  
  3974. 917
  3975. 01:42:21,885 --> 01:42:26,389
  3976. It's an honor to have lived at yours.
  3977.  
  3978. 918
  3979. 01:42:47,286 --> 01:42:49,412
  3980. My queen!
  3981.  
  3982. 919
  3983. 01:42:57,629 --> 01:42:59,380
  3984. My wife.
  3985.  
  3986. 920
  3987. 01:43:10,809 --> 01:43:12,602
  3988. My love.
  3989.  
  3990. 921
  3991. 01:45:39,041 --> 01:45:41,167
  3992. "Remember us."
  3993.  
  3994. 922
  3995. 01:45:42,836 --> 01:45:46,255
  3996. As simple an order as a king can give.
  3997.  
  3998. 923
  3999. 01:45:47,841 --> 01:45:51,052
  4000. "Remember why we died."
  4001.  
  4002. 924
  4003. 01:45:53,055 --> 01:45:57,099
  4004. For he did not wish tribute or song...
  4005.  
  4006. 925
  4007. 01:45:58,935 --> 01:46:03,105
  4008. nor monuments,
  4009. nor poems of war and valor.
  4010.  
  4011. 926
  4012. 01:46:05,984 --> 01:46:08,277
  4013. His wish was simple.
  4014.  
  4015. 927
  4016. 01:46:13,658 --> 01:46:15,743
  4017. "Remember us"...
  4018.  
  4019. 928
  4020. 01:46:16,787 --> 01:46:18,496
  4021. he said to me.
  4022.  
  4023. 929
  4024. 01:46:20,165 --> 01:46:22,375
  4025. That was his hope.
  4026.  
  4027. 930
  4028. 01:46:22,584 --> 01:46:26,295
  4029. Should any free soul
  4030. come across that place...
  4031.  
  4032. 931
  4033. 01:46:27,089 --> 01:46:30,424
  4034. in all the countless
  4035. centuries yet to be...
  4036.  
  4037. 932
  4038. 01:46:30,842 --> 01:46:33,427
  4039. may all our voices...
  4040.  
  4041. 933
  4042. 01:46:33,595 --> 01:46:37,640
  4043. whisper to you
  4044. from the ageless stones.
  4045.  
  4046. 934
  4047. 01:46:38,642 --> 01:46:42,269
  4048. Go tell the Spartans, passerby...
  4049.  
  4050. 935
  4051. 01:46:42,604 --> 01:46:48,484
  4052. that here, by Spartan law, we lie.
  4053.  
  4054. 936
  4055. 01:46:51,238 --> 01:46:53,948
  4056. And so my king died...
  4057.  
  4058. 937
  4059. 01:46:54,825 --> 01:46:57,451
  4060. and my brothers died...
  4061.  
  4062. 938
  4063. 01:46:59,830 --> 01:47:02,289
  4064. barely a year ago.
  4065.  
  4066. 939
  4067. 01:47:06,211 --> 01:47:11,465
  4068. Long I pondered my king's
  4069. cryptic talk of victory.
  4070.  
  4071. 940
  4072. 01:47:11,675 --> 01:47:14,343
  4073. Time has proven him wise.
  4074.  
  4075. 941
  4076. 01:47:15,220 --> 01:47:18,264
  4077. For from free Greek to free Greek...
  4078.  
  4079. 942
  4080. 01:47:18,432 --> 01:47:23,018
  4081. the word was spread
  4082. that bold Leonidas and his 300...
  4083.  
  4084. 943
