Troy (2004) Horror Movie Review
Horror movies Review
Troy has many mixed reviews. This is my opinion of the movie though. I enjoyed Troy a lot. Troy is about two powerful armies drawn into war over the sake of one woman, Helen of Troy. Helen is the beautiful wife of the brother of an evil King bent on world domination. She then has an affair with Prince Paris of Troy and along with the great Prince Hector taken to Troy. The evil King enlists the aid of Achilles, played by Brad Pitt, to win the war. The main scene is when Prince Hector and Achilles finally clash like two Titans of Greek Mythology. Achilles also falls in love but the death of a close family member sends him into a berserker blood rage. This movie has great meaning that the viewer must pay close attention to every element to make sense of the movie. Troy is a great story of lust betrayal, respect, fame, honor, mortality, greed, pride, humbleness and a great deal of revenge.
Synopsis:An adaptation of Homer's great epic, the film follows the assault on Troy by the united Greek forces and chronicles the fates of the men involved.
