Movie Trivia/Goofs

  • Movie Goof (continuity error): The shadows change positions as Queen Gorgo talks with Theron.
  • Ten visual effects vendors contributed to the film, spread over three continents.
  • When the narrator describes the Persian confusion with the troops at the rear wishing to advance and those in the front line wishing to retreat, he uses lines from the poem "Horatius" by 'Thomas Babington Macaulay', written in the 19th century about a small Roman force that held a narrow bridge against a much more numerous enemy. From the poem: "Was none who would be foremost to lead such dire attack: But those behind cried 'Forward!', and those before cried 'Back!'"
  • The line "Come back with your shield, or on it" was a common phrase said by Spartan women to their sons and husbands. It was common Spartan practice to bear the dead soldiers on their shields. The phrase "Come back with your shield" was a reference to the fact that a soldier who showed cowardice would usually drop his very heavy shield as he ran away in order to escape faster.
