Overview

Troy

Homer's sprawling tale of love and war in ancient Greece comes to the screen in all its grandeur in this epic-scale adventure. In 1193 B.C., Paris, Prince of Troy (Orlando Bloom), has fallen in love; however, the beautiful woman who has beguiled him is Helen, Queen of Sparta (Diane Kruger), who is wed to King Menelaus (Brendan Gleeson). While Helen is hardly immune to Paris' charms, this doesn't blunt Menelaus' fury when Paris steals her away from him. Menelaus' brother Agamemnon (Brian Cox), the power-hungry king of the Mycenaeans, is eager to expand his empire through Troy to the lands of the Aegean Sea, and he uses Paris' romantic slight against Menelaus as an excuse to wage an all-out war against the great walled city. Priam, King of Troy (Peter O'Toole), summons his armies, led by Prince Hector (Eric Bana), to meet the onslaught of Agamemnon's forces, but while the great city has yet to yield in a battle, Agamemnon has a formidable ally -- Achilles (Brad Pitt), a mighty and seemingly unstoppable warrior whose presence could tip the scales in Agamemnon's favor. Sean Bean, Julie Christie, Saffron Burrows, and Rose Byrne highlight the film's supporting cast.

Troy 4.3 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 94 reviews.

Brad Pitt, Rose Byrne, Eric Bana and Peter O'Toole were outstanding in their role. Agamenian was something else also in his role. I am sorry that Archilles killed Hector and sorry that Archilles died. Because of Archilles love for Breises and her love for Archilles, I believe he would have changed for the better. A sequeal to Troy should be made. Breises should have a child for Archilles and let the child grow up. A little more romance and a little less war although, I know the picture depicted war but love as well......DENISE E. HURST

this movie was awsome...the battle scenes were breathtaking and the story line was well-written
Guest More than 1 year ago
This movie was great i enjoyed the battle scenes and the emotion in the movie but if you expect this movie to be just like the Iliad, its not. so if you are looking for an easy way out of reading the Iliad for school, this movie wont help. The are many people who die in the movie who dont in the book and the book is based way more on the gods and goddesses than the movie. also characters story lines are alot different from the book as well. im glad i read the Iliad and the Odyssey before seeing this movie

This movie is quite spectacular and has many things to recommend it. Unfortunately, it has many flaws as well. The great Homer epic still waits for a filmmaker who can do it justice. On balance, though, Wolfgang Petersen's version is worth seeing. I liked the sword fights, particularly the one between Achilles and Hector. I've practiced a form of fencing myself, and I must say that Brad Pitt and Eric Bana did bring the legendary heroes to life! This is exactly how two strong, skillful, reckless young man would fight it out. It was 100% believable, which is very rare in movies. As an extra bonus, the armor was believable too -- modeled after Greek pottery art. Achilles shield, however, was very disappointing. According to legend, it was made by Hephaestus, the god of blacksmiths, and the Iliad devotes pages to its description. One would expect a glorious recreation on the screen, but alas. Hollywood's main goal was to keep production costs low and make a crowd pleaser for profit. The effort to please the female audience is especially transparent. So, Brad Pitt strips on several occasions and almost lets a slave girl cut his throat to prove a philosophical point. The hero of heroes, craving for glory on the battlefield, doesn't mind to be slain in bed by a woman... Ha!! This made me think how each culture reinterprets the stories of the past through the beliefs of the present. The Iliad glorifies the ideals of bronze-age Greece, where a hero's worth was measured by how many men he slew and how many women he raped. There are perhaps a hundred battles in the Iliad and only one family scene. In the movie we have three battles and three love stories, one of which (Achilles and Briseis) is totally made up. At the same time, the moving parting scene of Hector and Andromache gets perhaps 30 seconds on screen. Peter O'Toole delivers an outstanding performance as the old Priam, whose submission to the will of the gods comes straight from the Iliad. In Homer's tale, the outcome of the war ultimately depends on which Olympian god is allowed by Zeus to interfere the most. In the movie, the gods exist only in the human mind, and rather mockingly at that. Nietzsche said gods die when people stop believing in them. This movie demonstrates that the Olympians are dead today. I wonder, will the jealous god of Abraham suffer a similar fate in some future age? [6 June 2005]

If you are looking for a movie that closely and faithfully follows Homer's Iliad, look elsewhere. Otherwise, it is a good movie for purely mindless entertainment and Brad Pitt fans who can't get enough nude scenes. I applaud the director's efforts towards special effects and the battle scenes are well done. I agree with other reviewers that Helen's face as the cause for the launch of 1,000 ships was somewhat disappointing, but then again as I stated earlier...if you are looking for exact faithfulness to Homer's epic, look elsewhere. If you are looking for a good movie to watch and be suitably entertained, then you will not be disappointed.

This movie was one of the best movies of 2004. I absolutely love this movie. This movie is a classic in the tradition of "Gladiator".

Good movie. Too much eye candy for the women, though. And Brad Pitt had some good fight moves, but overdid the stab-in-the-back thing.

Ive always had a huge crush on brad pitt, but when i saw him with his new muscles and grown out hair all i could think of was HOT!!. But this movie also makes you believve that your actually there, and your caught up in the moment. But hotties brad pitt, orlando bloom, and eric bana dont hurt at all.

The blue ray and picture on this, it is amazing. The performances, action and the excitement of this film speaks for it self. One movie we have watched over and over, you won't be disappointed in this film.

It was an awesome movie, i liked it so much!! It was so interesting and if you already now the story it's fun trying to find out who is who before they say their names (but of course this is coming from me, a nerd). And I really don't know what my favorite part of the movie is. Anyway I liked it a lot and I hope you enjoy it too.

This, in my opinion was the most entertaining film of 2004. The movie was grand and richly made!

I naturally never attended to see this movie, but a friend recommended me to it so I just thought, what the hey, might as well. As soon as it started, I was deeply engrossed in the film. To me it was quite extrodinary. Personally, I have yet to read the Illiad (sorry if I spelled that incorrectly) so I cannot compare the film to Homer's work, but in all I thought it was very good. Brad Pitt is a very convincing and gripping Achillis and you fall in love with Paris who brings upon a war to be with the woman he loves. This movie certainly got me more interested in Greek mythology.

This story is incrediable; it does HOMER proud! brad pitt is more than convincing as the deep warrior Archilles; and from Orlando Bloom's performance alone, not his usual choice of character to play... but never the less incrediable. All should buy or at least experience this movie - their is no equal when it comes to eternal love 'death before dishoner' and the life of an immortal warrior.

Although it strays from "The Iliad", "Troy" is a great! movie! I was amazed that I liked it so much. It's a very good movie.
