Written on: 08/02/2013 by Frank_Matinez (11 reviews written)

Helen of Troy, she of the face that launched a thousand ships, has company in Wolfgang Petersen’s Troy. Brad Pitt, who I always considered to be a little too much of a “pretty-boy”, is growing up, getting older, maturing, and it looks good on him. Looking well-tanned and quite buff, Pitt stars as Achilles, one of the most famous warriors of all time, in this summer blockbuster. But is Brad’s pretty face and studly body enough to carry the film? Not to worry, there’s so much more to… Read Full Review

Written on: 04/08/2004 by bigdeer (3 reviews written)

Troy - Following the publicity, this film should have been an epic to rival the likes of Gladiator. Talk about false advertising. Save for a couple of good fight scenes (Pitt v. Bana for one) there is nothing else going for this film. The dialogue is forgettable, the music is unremarkable and even the gratuitous shots of Brad Pitt's naked backside were overdone and robbed from Legends of the Fall.

If you really want to see this film, rent it on DVD when it has already been out for six… Read Full Review

Written on: 22/06/2004 by thegriff (2 reviews written)

Compared to other epics along this line i.e. Spartacus and Gladiator, Troy has now become my favourite. From the start Achilles as you gripped and the story portrays him as he was a great fighter not a god. In Helen, Paris really did find a beauty and the Greeks rose as a nation to fight for her back. The fight scenes I believe are as good as the return of the king battles and the story is spot on apart from one slip when the Greeks emerge from the horse inside Troy.
All in all the best film I… Read Full Review

Written on: 10/06/2004 by shakytumbleweed (8 reviews written)

Troy is OK. It's not fantastic but it was definitely watchable. Bana played Hector superbly, really brought the doomed hero from the Illiad to life. And Pitt, give him his due, played Achilles well too. It was just that the movie seemed to lack something. A certain zing. "...Va-va voom" as Thierry would put it. I think that too much emphasis was put on the fight scenes. The LOTR trilogy worked so well because the story was the main thing and the huge impressive war scenes worked within that… Read Full Review

Written on: 05/06/2004 by cjrog20 (10 reviews written)

Troy is very good. The only thing I expected which wasn't there was that there was no explanation of Acilies, like why he is immortal and why his heel is his weekness. Nor did it talk about the young price of Troy's dream where he is shown Acilies' weekness. It is a brilliant film and the story line is very good… Read Full Review

Written on: 31/05/2004 by principessaleah (12 reviews written)

Troy is a thoroughly enjoyable film, that certainly takes liberties with the story as Homer wrote it, and steals more than a little from Gladiator, but is nevertheless worth seeing at least once.

Brad Pitt is fantastic as Achilles, the greatest soldier of them all. Spoilt, vain and ferocious he's not a hero - he's a fighter. He pouts and preens, and also involves himself in a rather touching romance.

Orlando Bloom shows surprising willingness to play the weakling Paris, the man who causes… Read Full Review

Written on: 24/05/2004 by Vasilis (1 review written)

Troy has a great opening sequence narrated by Sean Bean, who plays Greek warrior Odysseus. Stunning visuals keep the viewer hooked while also showing originality in many of the scenes.
As for the feel of the film, Petersen has done a remarkable job in visualising Homer's world. From the detailed costumes and weapons to the impressive reconstruction of Troy itself, everything has a remarkably authentic and textured feel. With CGI used in tandem and realistically with good old-fashioned… Read Full Review
