I enjoyed the pop-corned theatrical cut of "Troy", but not enough to buy the DVD. I especially appreciated the effort to create an accurate, rather than an spectacular, environment. This cut is much, much better. Not so much better as "Alexander revisited", but has dealt with many of the flaws of the original cut, such as poor development of characters and the softness in battles. All actors (but one, guess who) are great, especially Eric Bana. But I do not give it all five stars for one reason: its two huge inaccuracies that make the plot in the movie, and its pace, resent: one, the war at Troy was told to last for many years, adding great depth and intensity to the drama; two, Patroclus was actually Achilles' lover, and only that can explain his getting so mad when the boy was killed. It is a very good movie in this cut, but, too bad, should have been better to start with.
