This is a frequently flawed film, but for fans of classical adventures it is worth seeing anyway.

a 'chick flick' war adventure that suitably adapts Homer to inspire thousands of high school comparative essays.

Troy is to Gladiator what Jakob the Liar was to Schindler's List.
May 23, 2004
Moderately impressive battle scenes with a framework of insipidly teenaged dialog about love and honor.

The wrath of Brad looks more like a migraine.

The battle scenes are impressive, but you get the feeling that you've already seen this kind of monumental scrap done with more finesse.

Il y avait longtemps que je n'avais vu un film me tirailler autant entre le positif et le négatif.

For all its hype, "Troy" is just another war movie wrapped in a bigger, prettier box.

It's massive, opulent, passionate and -- unlike most summer time-wasters -- surprisingly intelligent.

This movie makes it look like there haven't been any advances in dialogue and acting technique since Charlton Heston's day.

With some good action acting from Pitt and Bana, it's a shame that Troy doesn't make enough out of the romantic center of this story.

Troy is a Cliffs Notes version without the helpful observations, a classic fable reduced to soap opera cheese and action movie idiocy.

crammed with near-campy moments and dialogue that often suggests 'The Young and the Restless -- 1200 B.C.'... ultimately seems as inauthentic as a gyro from Taco Bell.

Nothing more than a bigger, louder, glossier, possibly even sillier film than those cheesy Italian cheapies with U.S. titles like Mole Men Vs. the Son of Hercules.

Had I been more familiar with the Iliad source material - "source" in that the names and locations are similar - I would have been furious and bored, instead of just bored.

"Gladiator" it isn't. But it's a good solid popcorn-munchers' action flick all the same.
