Meet The Spartans, a review by Jimmy




Title : Meet The Spartans (2008)

Overview
The battle begins when the heroic Leonidas, armed with nothing but leather underwear and a cape, leads a ragtag group of 13 - count'em, 13! - warriors to defend their homeland against the invading Persians, whose ranks include Ghost Rider, Rocky Balboa, the Transformers, and a hunchbacked Paris Hilton!

My Impression
I like this one, but maybe there is a logic explaination :hmmmm: This is my third one today in 9 hours, so my brain maybe had decided to go on vacancy OR the film is good for real OR we see more of Carmen Electra and more often... I've my idea of why :laugh:

Don't take my introduction that serious, this isn't hard to be better than the 2 previous one. But this one had a story and they follow it and the story is funny in a dumb way. Evidently we got again the stupid non sense celebrity of the day get thrown at us for no real reason, but that didn't happen too often. The difference is that this time real actors are in the cast and that gives a more professional look. Kevin Sorbo is far from his Hercule days but he is better than any actors who had appear in the previous movies, Ken Davitian had some good line and Sean Maguire is good in the lead. The rest of the cast isn't important, but without the talents of Carmen Electra the movie would be certainly less interesting. The American Idol segment at the end isn't to bad too.

My Thoughts:
Let me say before my review that I can not compare this film to the comics as I never read them. Matter of fact before seeing this film released I had no idea they ever did a storyline involving a Son of Batman.

As for the film standing on it's own... I must say I enjoyed it very much! It has a good, strong storyline as well as a lot of action. Not to mention it's own fair share of bloodletting. I don't know how he compares to the comics... but I must say... I really like the character of Damian (Batman's son) and hope to see more animated films (even a live-action adaptation!) with him in it. If you are a fan of the animated superhero films this one is a must see! Well worth every minute!

"Due South" marathon, a review by addicted2dvd


An Invitation to Romance

Now this episode had plenty of comedy in it... from that irritating but hilarious woman Fraser had to follow all over to Ray in that Mountie uniform.... there was plenty in this episode to laugh at.
