None of these though were revealed in 'Troy' Warner's Troy was really cheap to my eyes, and to other intellectual people English Finnish and German colleagues of me as well. Wolfgang is one of the best directors out there now. But callow Paris seduces Menelaus' wife, Helen Diana Kruger , and spirits her back to Troy, too besotted to care that his actions will condemn his country to war. And now, this brings us to the good actors. The script was written with a mind to keep the important details of the original story intact but to make it as realistic as possible.

Troy (film)

troy movie review

Helena Diane Kruger , wife of Menelao of Sparta Brendan Gleeson , escapes with Paris Orlando Bloom underwent archery training for his role as Legolas in Lord of the rings , 2001 and its two sequels. Although the movie contains a running time of 162 minutes, director Wolfgang Petersen perfectly makes the audience forget about those 162 minutes, because they'll be distracted by all the incredible action. However, this is inaccurate because Helen left Menelaus because she was promised to Paris by Aphrodite after Paris named Aphrodite the most beautiful goddess in a contest between her, Hera and Athena Foros. But here in Troy I have new-found respect. I love the Long Island's and Chocolat drink at the bar. I think this is a good thing as well. One of the most noticeable differences between the book and the movie is the absence of the Gods.

Troy Review

troy movie review

The erotic treat of Brad Pitt's legs makes this historical cartoon worth seeing no matter how terrible it is. One of the most telling lines is when Hector Eric Bana refers to the fact that Apollo did not strike down Achilles Brad Pitt for desecrating the statue. The result is a series more competent than compelling. Everything else about it was fine. But this movie is also far away from being a terrible film.

For the last 15 minutes of the movie, it was quite hot in there again. He manages to be ruthless, loveable, evil and fatherly all at the same time. The trogans get ready and prepare to defend their home. He does a good job with the film, rooting the battles in genuine emotion and intelligence, and giving it a distinctive, memorable atmosphere and artistic look. On the way to the….

Stirrups on horses were not invented and used until the 4th century, and the time period is said in the beginning of the movie to be 1250 B. It's a great adventure movie that offers a wide range of expectations of the epic genre. He uses the main character, Achilles, to fight his battles, even though Achilles hates fighting for him and only fights for himself. His original wishy-washy Hannibal Lecter was trumped by Anthony Hopkins, but now Cox is emerging as a great actor of this age. The characters repeatedly choose emotion over reason.

It makes the story a lot more realistic. Another part of this theme that was shown throughout this movie was the aspect of arts and architecture. All three of our kids are dedicated to their walk with Christ but they still encounter challenges. While visiting Spartan King Menelaus Brendan Gleeson , Trojan prince Paris Orlando Bloom falls for Menelaus' wife, Helen Diane Kruger , and takes her back to Troy. This movie is the watered-down, greatest hits, Classic Comics version. The viewer soon realizes that Achilles does not want to use Briseis and that he is falling in love with her.

Troy Movie Review

His character is complicated and this is also true to the Iliad. Although not on screen much in Troy, his performance is edgy and true to the legends of the cunning king of Ithaca. Screenwriter David Benioff pares away the supporting players, reshuffles the chronology of key events and ditches the meddlesome Olympians whose caprices drive the twists and turns of Homer's epic poem, The Iliad plus a smidgen of The Aeneid , in favor of a thoroughly earthbound path to war. Diane Kruger as Helen of Troy. Besides the supporting cast, Peter O' Toole is just perfect playing the king of Troy. Petersen orchestrates a handsome battle sequence, but this attenuated stew of stagy posturing and unconvincing domestic drama runs aground on Pitt's preening deportment and drama-class line readings, even with Achilles reconceived as a celebrity-craving bad boy with authority issues.

TROY

troy movie review

Eric Bana and Orlando Bloom play more emotional heroes, and while Bana manages to give Hector an awesome kick-ass edge, strong nobility and adds many dimensions to his heroic part, Bloom doesn't quite handle the job as well. However, I think Pitt's performance is less successful. I'm sick of all the bad reviews for this movie. The acting is mostly standard. Maybe is that famous extra something that everybody talks about and makes a star a star.

troy movie review

If I recall well it was Iliada Iliad on 8th grade and Odysseia Odyssey on 9th grade. This movie has some of the best battle scenes I have ever seen in a movie like this and I have seen a lot. It is truly a much richer, perhaps even exciting experience, as your expectations have been lowered, and often this makes a movie-watching experience better. I'm very glad I finally saw this movie. Agamemnon recruits the volatile, self-interested Achilles and raises an überarmy with a single purpose: the destruction of Troy. I, for one intend to see it again tonight. The chemistry was certainly believable and the singing from Bradley amazing! Also, there is an inaccuracy in the use of llamas in Troy.

Troy (2004) Movie Review

troy movie review

If any thing else Troy will go down as having one of the most impressive fight scenes of any film in history. Their lines are well delivered and their characters are believable. Every side thinks they are the good guys. Brad Pitt delivers one of the best performances of his career as Achilles, giving the right amount of power and strength. The fight scenes are great, although some of the close combat tactics used by Achilles are all but impossible.
