Films like 300, Gladiator, Conan, Clash of The Titans, The Barbarians, Scorpion king and a whole host of others are moves that gained popularity at different times because of the action, the brawn, the muscles and the swords.
The protangonists of these films were all warriors. Yes warriors! It's these warrior movies people take a liking to because of the innate nature of human beings to be entertained and the fact the humans have always felt a need for a hero. The warriors and hero's in these movies are fictional characters probably created to feed the inner craving of people for leaders who are brave, skilled, tough, inspiring and extraordinary.
When I read the Word of God I realize that we have heroes in todays world. We have heroes who are equally inspiring and brave,spiritual heroes who are taking on the dragon (the devil) and his cohorts.
There is a path every spiritual warrior is on.
