One of my all time favorites! The movie was entertaining with a lot battle scenes. The movie was pretty coherent, but that's because of the endless dialogues... But, definitely kept me interested, due to twists and what not.

great epic war movie that separates itself from its competitors by having a great story. Achilles is a straight beast. this movie did a great job of making root for so many opposing characters. lots of memorable scenes. (2 viewings)

Based on Homer's The Iliad, this is an epic re-telling of the legend of the sack of that city - a legend that, for years, scholars believed to be just that until they discovered the remains on the city.

While perhaps overly long, this has some nice battle scenes, particularly in the initial beach landing (like a bronze age 'Saving Private Ryan' D-Day) and in the Achilles Vs Hector duel. it's just a pity that I found Brad Pitt's Achilles difficult to warm to, while Orlando Bloom seems very effeminate as Paris and Diane Kruger slightly miscast as Helen of Troy. On the other hand, Eric Bana is good as Hector as is Sean Bean as Odysseus, while Brian Cox makes a suitable Agamemnon.

Finally, this version takes the 'wooden horse' of the legend literally!

This is just such an intriguing film. It's entertaining and the fight scenes are so well put together. But the blandness of the acting in multiple scenes doesn't help much. However, the characters are still brought to life. I look at Achilles and see Achilles, not Brad Pitt. It's a good movie, though it could use a remake.

This film builds from Homer's "The Iliad," and it showcases the famous war between the Greeks and the Trojans and its leading events. However, you may have a good hunch to how the film will end if you have some basic knowledge of the phrases "Achilles' heel" and "Trojan horse."

Life Lesson: Don't cheat on your significant other. Bad things will happen if you do, like, your kingdom may burn down.

Perhaps lacking in character development, this adaptation of The Iliad is still entertaining if nothing else.

Pitt delivers an excellent performance, keeping the viewer interested throughout the movie. The historic aspect along with the right amount of Hollywood touches makes for a great film.

One of the best action films ever made, worth a watch with excellent acting from Brad Pitt and Eric Bana.

Directors cut only. Don't let the Hollywood elites ruin what could have been an even greater experience for you.

Wolfgang Petersen's violent and large-scale adaptation of Homer's, The Iliad, is an entertaining piece of sword-and-sandals popcorn entertainment with an A-list cast, fantastic production values, and amazing fight choreography that will certainly astonish. The film chronicles the Greek assault against the Trojans holed up in the massive city of Troy; as we follow Greece's mightiest warrior, Achilles, played with god-like conviction from Brad Pitt who trained for six months to get the ideal body figure. Also starring is Brian Cox as the ruthless leader, Agamemnon, and Eric Bana as Troy's deadliest fighter, Hector, whose one-on-one battle with Achilles near the end of the film is one of the all-time best sword fights I've ever seen, with the two actors performing their own stunts and choreography. Rounding out the cast; Orlando Bloom and Diane Kruger star as Paris and Helen Of Sparta (eventually Troy) who are secretly having an affair and after eloping together, her vengeful husband, Menelaus, seeks to reclaim her and take down the Trojans for their betrayal. The film isn't entirely accurate in its adaptation of the epic Homer poem, nor actual history, and certain events and fates of characters don't line up, but you can forgive all that as this is clearly a condensed version of what took place. It's a bloody, epic, and highly enjoyable war film that succeeds largely thanks to the solid casting and big-budget thrills and for me, the nearly 3-hour runtime flew by!

A phenomenal movie with incredible action scenes, as well as moments that tug on the strings of our hearts. Brad Pitt does great in the lead role... a welcome change for 2004. This movie will have even more impact for those that don't know the backstory.
I would be more inclined to believe the 73% of audience that liked it vs the subpar 54% approval rating given by the "critics".
