  • What I found interesting about it, is that the director, Wolfgang Peterson manages to keep up the public divided between the two main heroes Achilles (Pitt) and Hector (Bana) till the very end

      Four years after the epic movie “Gladiator”, Brad Pitt attempts to make a success out of another epic movie “Troy”. The only two things in common that these two movies have are that they were both filmed in Malta. While “Gladiator” was a huge blockbuster, “Troy” failed miserable to reach the same level of production and success. In fact, this movie was only

      nominated for one Oscar in relation to costumes.

      Mind you, I still believe that “Troy” is a good movie, but it had the potential to be a great movie. So what didn’t work clockwork? First of all, the fighting scenes are not as spectacular as those seen in “Gladiator”. Secondly, there is a lot of unnecessary focus on Brad Pitt. The director gives a lot of ...


      • importance to the scenes were Pitt is seen naked and little detail to the rest of the story.

        With great looking actors such as Brad Pitt and Orlando Bloom, I was very much surprised that the actor that actually stole the scenes was Eric Bana in his role of Hector. His interpretation of this role is very convincing and, in certain moments, very emotional.

        The story

        of this movie is an adaptation of Homer’s great epic. What I found interesting about it, is that the director, Wolfgang Peterson manages to keep up the public divided between the two main heroes Achilles (Pitt) and Hector (Bana) till the very end.

        “Troy” is a good epic movie with Brad Pitt showing off his battling techniques and muscles but it cannot be compared to the great blockbuster “Gladiator”.
