Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer direct 'Meet The Spartans' (Cert 12, 82 mins, Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment,€25.52) an interminable spoof of the sword and sandals romp.

King Leonidas (Sean Maguire) leads his 13-strong army of men with airbrushed six-packs into battle against the might of Xerxes (Ken Davitian). Bidding farewell to his smokin’ hot queen Margo (Carmen Electra) in traditional Spartan style, Leonidas skips towards destiny to the war cry of Gloria Gaynor’s I Will Survive.

A truly soul-crushing and pointless exercise!

DVD Extras: Cast and crew commentary, “Meet the Spartans: The Music” featurette, “Prepare For Thrusting” featurette, “Tour The Set With Ike Barinholtz” featurette, gag reel, Know Your Spartans Pop Culture trivia game.
