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.

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.

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

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.

Bruising battles and some stirring performances make Troy enjoyable, if rather long.

Harsh, serious, and both exhilarating and tragic, the right tonal combination for Homer.

'Espectacular relato Úpico que, a pesar de su falta de emotividad, es un claro ejemplo de cine de calidad.'

The latest in a very long line of films made to give us those things that other mediums could not provide.

Courier-Journal (Louisville, KY)
June 22, 2004 a Classic Comics version of The Iliad...but when it comes to Hollywood summer spectaculars and sandal epics, Troy suffices.

In the same league with Oscar winners (and more graphic) Braveheart and Gladiator films. If you want historical accuracy, go rent a documentary.

...the marriage of drama and action is tenuous at times, but all in all, this is a pretty impressive grown up summer blockbuster.

You may be thinking, 'I fear Hollywood, even when it comes bearing gifts.'...Troy is the real deal, even allowing for Pitt's non-Herculean performance as Achilles.

The digital work is superb with the huge battle scenes looking very realistic.

Falling between Gladiator and Return of the King, it's as good of an ancient war epic as you're likely to find in this post Lord of the Rings era.

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.

...there's just something exciting about watching two men attack each other with crude weapons.
