Actually, Phillip II, Alexander's father, ended the Greek city states at Cheronaea. Alexander just commanded the cavalry.

"some Europeans bristled at such Western chauvinism, came to the silly conclusion that the movie was a George Bush/Iraq allegory,"

They weren't bristling over that "silly" Western chauvinism....oh say, some 60 years ago. Perhaps if the EuroWeenies go see it their own long-shrunk-up weenies might feel a surge of testosterone.

Western Civilization again faces Thermopylae, the Hot Gates, the “clash of civilizations”, Eastern Muslim fascism and collective dhimmitude against the idea of the free citizen. One nation and a handful of allies are in the breach, pray that the fate of those few, proud, brave Spartans are not the fate of own allied and US Military. Western People must recognize the danger and the challenge before it is too late and the Hot Gates are breached.

When you go to see this movie be sure to see it on an IMAX screen!

Let us not forget Themistocles who was the real hero in the war with the Persians.

I understand that Leonides gave his life to defend Athens but that was because of his interpretation of the Oracle of Delphi

Great warriors all, though.
