Meet the Spartans

 (2008)

Meet the Spartans Blu-ray despite stunning video and audio falls short as a Blu-ray release

The heroic Leonidas, armed with nothing but leather underwear and a cape, leads a ragtag group of 13—count 'em, 13!—Spartans to defend their homeland against the invading Persians (whose ranks include Ghost Rider, Rocky Balboa, the Transformers and a hunchbacked Paris Hilton). No one is safe when the Spartans take on the biggest icons in pop culture.

For more about Meet the Spartans and the Meet the Spartans Blu-ray release, see Meet the Spartans Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 1.5 out of 5.

Starring: Sean Maguire, Carmen Electra, Ken Davitian, Kevin Sorbo, Diedrich Bader, Method Man
Directors: Jason Friedberg, Aaron Seltzer

Meet the Spartans Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Despite the fact that this movie is a total loss, Fox has nevertheless delivered it in fine fashion to Blu-ray. Meet the Spartans arrives in a very handsome 1080p, 1.85:1 transfer that is befitting of a much better movie. The image is crystal-clear and pleasing to the eye throughout. Flesh tones are accurate, but like the movie as a whole, have a slight golden tint to them. Meet the Spartans has a very natural, lifelike, and cinematic feel to it. There is some grain present in the film that adds a nice touch to the movie but doesn't necessarily hearken back to the level of artificial grain as seen in the real (and obviously vastly superior) 300. Black levels are fine, but there are some instances, especially during various effects shots, that appear washed out and gray, but these are few and far between, scattered amongst an otherwise excellent transfer. Fine detail is also quite high. The Persian uniforms look great; their gray tops and yellow sashes stand out and appear natural and lifelike, as do the red cloaks worn by the Spartans. The ornate decorations worn by King Xerxes also look real (and fake, meaning dime store accessories rather than real gold adornments), but we can easily make out every nuance and detail on them. Impressive detail is also noted on minor props, such as a bandage worn over the overweight soldier's eyes; every thread and fray is clearly visible, as is the minor amount of dirt present on it, and it looks like a real and used battlefield dressing. We can also make out every pit, mark, and rough blemish on shields, helmets, and weapons. This high quality transfer didn't make the movie any better, but at least it provided something positive to say in the review.


Meet the Spartans Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Fox has delivered another impressive lossless DTS-HD MA 5.1 soundtrack. Audiences are treated to an awesome surround and percussion presence to open the movie, easily the finest moment of the film until those glorious credits begin rolling. A booming thunder that accompanies this opening moment of the movie is among the finest I've heard yet. In fact, surround presence is impeccable throughout the movie, and the entire soundtrack is worthy of a far better movie. Bass rumbles on other occasions as well, notably during the Transformers/Megatron spoof. Dialogue reproduction is also perfect. When the overweight Spartan goes in for an attack and fails in chapter 10, the track offers nice separation and imaging, the sound of the scene is its only redeeming quality. In the same chapter, the "Xerxes Mix" is a dynamic hip-hop beat that sounds great in lossless audio as bass rattles and the music and lyrics permeate the listening area. Unfortunately, this fine soundtrack doesn't improve the movie one iota. In fact, it made me wish that my sound system was being put to better use, but for this movie's fans, this listen should be a treat. Kudos to Fox for not letting the quality of the movie interfere with the quality of their Blu-ray release.
