Product description

Product Description

Swords and sandals abound in this epic tale of love and war starring Brad Pitt as the muscle-bound Achilles. Set in 1193 BC, the film is based on Homer's sprawling epic poem 'The Iliad'. It tells the story of Paris, Prince of Troy (Orlando Bloom), who falls in love with the wife of King Menelaus of Sparta (Brendan Gleeson), the beautiful Helen (Diane Kruger). He persuades her to leave her husband and go back with him to Troy, sparking a war between the Mycenaeans, led by Menelaus's brother Agamemnon (Brian Cox), and the armies of Troy, led by Prince Hector (Eric Bana). The City of Troy, governed by King Priam (Peter O'Toole) has never before succumbed to seige or battle, but Agamemnon and the Mycenae Greeks have a formidable ally: the great and seemingly indomitable Achilles. Political intrigue, passionate love trysts and one-on-one fight sequences take place against a background of sweeping battle scenes as the armies of ancient Greece and the city of Troy engage in their epic and bloody war.

From Amazon.co.uk

There are many reasons to recommend Troy as a good ol' fashioned Hollywood epic, especially if you've never read Homer's The Iliad. Dispensing with Greek gods altogether, this earnestly massive production (budgeted at upwards of $200 million) will surely offend historians and devoted students of the classics. But there's politics aplenty in the grand-scale war that erupts when Trojan prince Paris (Orlando Bloom) makes off with Helen (blandly beautiful German model Diane Kruger), wife of Spartan ruler Menelaus (Brendan Gleeson), whose brother, the Greek king Agamemnon (Brian Cox) prods him into enraged retaliation. Greek warrior Achilles (Brad Pitt) brings lethal force to his battles (and there are many of them, mostly impressive), and his Trojan counterpart, Paris's brother Hector (Eric Bana), adds even more buffed-up beefcake to a film so chock-full o' hunks that there's barely room for Peter O'Toole (doing fine work as Trojan king Priam) and even less for Julie Christie, appearing ever-so-briefly as Achilles's melancholy mother. The drama is nearly as arid as the sun-baked locations (Mexico and Malta) that stand in for the Aegean coast, and many critics suggested that Pitt (who valiantly tries to give Achilles some tormented dimension) was simply miscast. But when you consider that Wolfgang Petersen also made The Perfect Storm, there's nothing wrong with enjoying Troy as a semi-guilty pleasure with a touch of ancient class. --Jeff Shannon

No one seems to have commented on the many cultural and anachronistic inaccuracies in this film but only look how Peter Connolly illustrates the appearance of both the ancient Mycenaen And Danaian warriors of Homers ancient Hellas in his suberb books-The 'Greeks',Then,were generally known as Denyen or Achaeoi,thus we get the term,'Aegean' sea.

There are no archaic giant shields to speak of,save for Ajax' nor are horned helmets shown,nor those made of boars teeth and for some reason the costumier has clad the Spartan Ephors in Arab dress, who look even worse in the directors extended cut,looking like Saracens which is silly and untruthful-this is not merely anachronism but either ignorance or a liberal deception,however,the film itself,can be understood as a historical prequel to Homer's The Odyssey,written about 800 b.c,about 500 years after these tragic and heroic events.

Sadly,there are no translators between Trojan and Hellene even given their linguistic kinship,No bilingual Hittite or Greek Herald and additionally,the spears all seem far too light and short whereas Spear-throwers and thongs wrapped around the spear shaft might have added an authentic archaological element-Also,Eudorus' helmet with transverse crest is far too late,much like Achilles irresisitable Corinthoid helmet.

Clarifies Homer's epic story for a modern audience. I'm sure the relationships and minutiae of the times were garnished. Likewise the religious symbolism of the gods fighting (and being seen by the protagonists) on the battlefield. An enjoyable and colourful adventure.

I didnt really like the original cut of Troy, but when I watched this after pre-ordering it I realised how much more exciting and epic it could get, and how err 2D it was before.

You get the whole package really with the additional scenes not just four minutes here and there and a couple at the end like some other directors cuts. The extra scenes come to about half hour, and consist of extra depth into the the love of Hector and Andromache, Paris and Helen and of course extended battle scenes which are awesome and couldn't be better.

I really think even if you didnt like the original cut you should get this because it does feel like a more rounded, polished film which goes further into making this a sort of classic and a great film.
