The Greeks unite and send a massive fleet and army, led by their greatest warrior Achilles, to defend their honor. This movie was awesome and bad-ass... until the end ... and it sucked.

A good movie that pulled off the epic pretty nicely. Pitt and Bloom were excellent choices.

Looked like a great epic, but came out being an average mash-up of better films.

Don't think....just enjoy!

Troy plays fast and loose with history and Greek Mythology, but it ends up being a pretty entertaining movie with Brad Pitt, Eric Bana, Sean Bean and Orlando Bloom as a blatant ploy to get us chicks to watch but hey it worked.

Paris (Orlando Bloom), the second son of Priam (Peter O'Toole), King of Troy, falls in love with Helen, the wife of Menelaus, King of Sparta and steals his newfound love back to Troy. Her husband Menelaus, King of Sparta who has been looking for an excuse to raid Troy for some time then decides to wage war against Troy not because he loves Helen; he just wants her back because losing his wife to another man is a blow to his pride.

He calls upon his brother, Agamemnon, commander of all the armies of Greece, to stand beside him in this war. Seeing this as an op...

"Troy" by Yojimbo

Based on Homer's The Iliad, one of the most famous tale's ever told, Troy has all the usual Hollywood epic ingredients; an American hero with bulging biceps sporting an odd accent, a supporting cast of British character actors who routinely show him up (especially Peter O'Toole who brings some real humanity to his somewhat underwritten role) and a soundtrack of the usual faux-folk warbling and penny whistles that seem to mean "ye olden days" to US audiences. Brian Cox is actually pretty good fun as the megalomaniacal king and Orlando Bloom's fresh faced vulnerability that I find usually compromises him in leading roles actually works to his advantage here. To be honest, all the characters are really just stereotypical "heroes" with little insight or depth but it has a sense of spectacle t...

The visuals and battle scenes carries this movie

"Troy" is the story of the Greeks' bloody attack on the city of which the movie is named after lead by "Achilles" (Brad Pitt) to bring back "Helen of Troy" (Diane Kruger) to her homeland of Sparta.

The movie is reminicent to the movies of the 1960's visually. The story is a bit weak and lags somewhat, as is some of the acting.

The visuals look amazing, but I watched the movie on a television. This is the kind of movie that must be seen on the silver screen. From what I could see, the director picked the most spectacular shots he could come up with. I was amazed by how the scenery, especially the battles, filled the screen all the way to the distance. There is however way too much tan and brown colors thanks to the buildings and sand that dominates the screen.

Eric Bana and Orl...
