An adaptation of The Iliad that would have had to work much harder to miss the point of The Iliad any more thoroughly.

While an achievement in visuals, Troy fails in every other aspect including its writing and storytelling.

Despite its shortcomings, Troy is a visual smorgasbord.

The face-off between Achilles and Hector is beautifully realized, all the more wounding because we can precisely read each man's emotions going into the fight.

It's coherent at least. But only barely. Its special effects are pretty, and it has a cool soundtrack (though it's over-used). But boy is the writing terrible. I mean, terrible.

All the cast members, even Mr. Pitt, adopt the obligatory British accent, sans contractions, employed by the historical drama genre, even though the action takes place in Ancient Greece.

A numbingly reliable tick-tock of expository set pieces alternating with vast CGI-aided battle scenes.

Troy condenses Homer's ten-year war into a couple of months.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

The battle of Troy takes the jump from history books to film with little consideration, disregarding the story's historical accuracy and failing to entertain audiences with the kind of flashy battle sequences the summer season demands.

Aside from being the first Hair Movie of the year, Troy also claims the prize of being the first Get Your Fat Butt to the Gym Movie of the year.

'A valiant but doomed affair, as carefully constructed -- and ultimately as hollow -- as the Trojan Horse itself.'

It's no classic but Troy does prove to be a damn good film overall.

Wooden horse, wooden acting, wouldn't bother if I were you.

Troy is not a great film, not even an especially good film, but it is an engrossing film, sometimes for the wrong reasons but close enough for Hollywood.
Full Review | Original Score: 7/10

Troy is an empty and dispiriting game, a contest of steroid-ingesting brutes who have made themselves gods in their own minds.

See for yourself, but, for me, it was much ado about nothing.
