  1. The sequel looks awesome. If it is close to historical fact then it will go down in movie history

  2. Again, not to COMPLAIN BUTTTTTTTTT, after glancing at IMDB there do not appear to be any actual GREEK actors in this film. Amazing, hollywood will get anyone else to play us, but US. Including that 1 film recently where the ROCK played a greek. lmao
