Troy (2004)


Recommended Posts



Brad Pitt, Eric Bana and Orlando Bloom star in this blockbuster adaptation of Homer’s war epic, written by former-Game of Thrones showrunner David Benioff. Pitt is muscular and brusque as the fated Achilles, a bit wooden at times but that seems fitting for a film that centres itself around a giant wooden horse. Those seeking an emotional interpretation of the Battle of Troy would be better off reading Madeline Miller’s ‘The Song of Achilles’. This one is for fans of big set pieces and bloody battles, both of which arrive smothered in lashings of CGI.
