Filed under: ,

It's near impossible to watch Frank Miller's epic film 300 without marveling at the peak physical condition that all of the actors are in.

You took a look at these guys and thought, if any 300 guys could take on an army of 1 million, it's probably them. But, in reality, Spartan warriors they are not.
