Creatures were designed by Jordu Schell and an animatronic wolf and thirteen animatronic horses were created. The actors trained alongside the stuntmen, and even Snyder joined in. Upwards of costumes were created for the film, as well as extensive prosthetics for various characters and the corpses of Persian soldiers.
Shaun Smith and Mark Rappaport worked hand in hand with Snyder in pre-production to design the look of the individual characters, and to produce the prosthetic makeup effects, props, weapons and dummy bodies required for the production. Butler said that while he did not feel constrained by Snyder's direction, fidelity to the comic imposed certain limitations on his performance.
Wenham said there were times when Snyder wanted to precisely capture iconic moments from the comic book, and other times when he gave actors freedom "to explore within the world and the confines that had been set.
Visual effects supervisor Chris Watts and production designer Jim Bissell created a process dubbed "The Crush,"  which allowed the Meteor artists to manipulate the colors by increasing the contrast of light and dark.
Certain sequences were desaturated and tinted to establish different moods.

The site's critical consensus reads, "A simple-minded but visually exciting experience, full of blood, violence, and ready-made movie quotes. Scott of The New York Times describes as "about as violent as Apocalypto and twice as stupid," while criticizing its color scheme and suggesting that its plot includes racist undertones; Scott also poked fun at the buffed bodies of the actors portraying the Spartans, declaring that the Persian characters are "pioneers in the art of face-piercing", but that the Spartans had access to "superior health clubs and electrolysis facilities".
Comic Book Resources ' Mark Cronan found the film compelling, leaving him "with a feeling of power, from having been witness to something grand. The historical consensus, both among ancient chroniclers and current scholars, was that Thermopylae was a clear Greek defeat; the Persian invasion would be pushed back in later ground and naval battles. The Spartans' use of the narrow terrain, in those particular circumstances, is a military tactic known as " defeat in detail ". Paul CartledgeProfessor of Greek History at Cambridge Universityadvised the filmmakers on the pronunciation of Greek names, and said they "made good use" of his published work on Sparta.
He praises the film for its portrayal of "the Spartans' heroic code", and of "the key role played by women in backing up, indeed reinforcing, the male martial code of heroic honour", while expressing reservations about its "'West' goodies vs 'East' baddies polarization".
He suggests that the film's moral universe would have seemed "as bizarre to ancient Greeks as it does to modern historians".
He remarks that SimonidesAeschylusand Herodotus viewed Thermopylae as a battle against "Eastern centralism and collective serfdom", which opposed "the idea of the free citizen of an autonomous polis ". Some passages from the Classical authors AeschylusDiodorusHerodotus and Plutarch are split over the movie to give it an authentic flavor. Aeschylus becomes a major source when the battle with the "monstrous human herd" of the Persians is narrated in the film.
Diodorus' statement about Greek valor to preserve their liberty is inserted in the film, but his mention of Persian valor is omitted. Herodotus' fanciful numbers are used to populate the Persian army, and Plutarch's discussion of Greek women, specifically Spartan women, is inserted wrongly in the dialogue between the " misogynist " Persian ambassador and the Spartan king.
Classical sources are certainly used, but exactly in all the wrong places, or quite naively.
