All Critics (15) | Top Critics (1)

The result is a series more competent than compelling.

The dialogue is so richly silted with self-help banalities, we might as well be watching a Meghan and Harry biopic. There's also something exceedingly creepy about its retro, soft-porny direction...if only it had not seemed so tediously 21st century.

We haven't met Achilles yet, so there is plenty of time for things to get hysterical, but Troy: Fall of a City might just be a fresh, psychologically knotty take on one of the greatest tales of them all.

Still, this new eight-part series begins to grip as the various pieces interlock.

Yet, while the dialogue there was also a seamless combination of the portentous and the banal, Troy takes the process a whole lot further, with a script that seems pitched somewhere between a particularly corny Hollywood epic and a play by Ernie Wise.

Troy: Fall of a City sets itself apart from 90% of Iliad adaptations by going behind those historic walls and giving us a great depiction of the tough decisions that were made causing the tragic downfall of a historic empire.

I found myself especially mesmerized by the show's eerie presentation of deities: here, spectacularly partisan goddesses strut across raging battlefields, while a world-weary Zeus remains resolutely neutral amidst the chaos.

Slow retelling of classic tale lacks strong characters.

Apr 10, 2018 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Troy: Fall of a City, a reworking of the oldest drive-by in history, is so far removed from anything Sophocles might recognise, they should have named it The Real Housewives of Ilium.

If it's escapism you're wanting, series link away.
