“Our bodies are sizzling, we need more water!” - Spartans

Underdogs beating multitude of bullies is always a sight to see. Getting surrounded by a group of Forsworn or Draugr, and still beating the hell out of them gives the exhilarating rush of adrenaline and the overwhelming feeling of superiority. You can feel your inner voice shouting at your opponents, “That’s all you can do?!”

This kickass film is just like that: 300-strong, outnumbered warriors besting thousands of enemies of varying shapes, sizes, and proportions. With just a shield and spear (sadly, there are no spears in vanilla Skyrim), they managed to defeat giants, assassins, enormous beasts, bombs, and ‘magic’.

Skyrim even has an easter egg referring to this movie. If you head just south of the Shrine to Peryite, northeast of the Lover Stone, you will come across a skeleton (about halfway up the mountain). If you look just to the side of the skeleton you will see a sabre cat stuck between two rocks with a glass sword through its mouth and head. This refers to the scene in the movie where Leonidas leads a wolf to a narrow passage then stabs it through the mouth with a spear.

“Aaaaargghhh, that frigging hurts!” – Leonidas, arrow on his chest
