If there was one thing I did not like in this film it was the transformation of Paris into some kind of hero. Their final scene together is very emotional and the actors have genuine chemistry. Not just the army special effects but the sets and scenery are all beautiful. He even refers to this in my favorite scene when he is inspiring his men and starts the invasion heavily outnumbered and still triumphs. They don't get directly involved in the action like the original.Next
After Menelaus finds out that his wife was taken by the Trojans, he asks his brother Agamemnon to help him get her back. Achilles is easily the most interesting and entertaining character. The Hulk was so bad I wrote him off completely, blaming his acting for not saving a horrible script.

I had never seen a shield wielded so realistically on film. As the greatest warrior in history, he is most definitely convincing.Next
Based somewhat loosely on Homer's The Illiad, Troy tells of the ten year siege of Troy caused by Prince Paris illicit romance with Helen of Sparta the face that launched a thousand ships. The movie basically shows us how a rumor can blossom into a legend unto itself. Paris was a coward in the original myth and I saw no reason to transform him into an overnight hero in the movie. 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. The battle sequences are a little more graphic than you might expect, and they are certainly brutal.Next
If Achilles was complex, then Bana's Hector is even more so. To exercise their rights of opposition, correction or deletion should write to the following email: peliculatorpeliculator gmail. Overlong, overblown, and ultimately taking itself way too seriously, the film is worth watching for a single brilliant scene where Peter O'Toole begs Brad Pitt for the body of his dead son. Real life seldom has the simplistic good guy vs. Homer's Iliad was always a complicated, ensemble story. Those with no previous knowledge of Greek mythology will be wondering why on earth an arrow in the heel kills him.Next
As Achilles puts it, she gave him peace in a time of violence and war. I remember hearing several outside critics blasting the movie as horrible and wanted to judge for myself. Most of the cast acquit themselves well, despite mispronouncing certain names. Their lines are well delivered and their characters are believable. His character is complicated and this is also true to the Iliad. And those thousand ships, battles, and numerous special effects certainly please the eye.Next
Agamemnon sees this as an opportunity for power. But they come to a stop by Hector, Prince of Troy. During the days of mourning Achilles and the Greek army construct a hollow wooden horse in which they hide and enter the city of Troy. Wolfgang Petersen was criticised for being too much of a claustrophobic director to take on one of the biggest films ever made, but he handles the epic, large scale of the film nicely, if perhaps maybe not using as many swooping, stunning shots as he could. But the combat scenes with him are more than enough to make up for that. Troy 2004 Subtitles It is the year 1250 B. However, all are totally outclassed by Peter O'Toole's King Priam, an outstanding performance.Next
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. The womens will have plenty to look at. It has already been discussed how much bigger he is than in Fight Club. Here he has a few moments where he seems out of place, a pretty boy in a soldier's world. First, in response to all the Gladiator lovers who said on the boards that there is no one to cheer for in Troy, I say they are idiots. The fight between Hector and Achilles is reason enough to watch Troy alone.Next
He is the main character in the film if you judge by acting power. Director Wolfgang Petersen made his name in movie production with the German submarine movie Das Boot and has gone on to direct many large budget Hollywood movies. Pictures and has a running time of 162 minutes, with a directors version of the film running at 196 minutes. With the help of Achilles, the Greeks are able to fight the never before defeated Trojans. The cast is largely made up of established Hollywood actors, including Brad Pitt, Orlando Bloom and Eric Bana.
Brad Pitt, looking absolutely incredible here the months of training sure paid off , shoulders the movie with much confidence and adds layers to his arrogant, self-centred Achilles. Screenplay , direction and most of all Brad Pitt, Eric Bana, Brian Cox, and Peter o'Toole were completely on top of their game, even Olando Bloom as the love sick coward Paris was very watchable. His actions in the film really seem appropriate. It is more likely Bloom was put in this part for his looks rather than his talent, which is still in question by yours truly. Gladiator was about a single protagonist. The focus of the 2004 version of Troy is shifted from the love story between Helen of Sparta and Prince Paris of Troy; the love story is used as a plot device to maneuver Brad Pitt's Achilles into battle with Eric Bana's Prince Hector. So I saw it again for History class since it's not historically accurate, perhaps that wasn't the best idea.
A fight fan will appreciate the attention to detail in the combatants' moves. He will join this generation's acting elite if he finds more roles like this. This in my mind makes Troy that much more believable. But here in Troy I have new-found respect. In the myth Paris does kill Achilles with an arrow, but because he has no battle skills his hand is actually guided by Apollo. Later in the same scene he scoffs at the so-called gods the Greeks and Trojans worship by decapitating the statue.Next
