Okay, so disregarding the first 30 minutes, which were incredibly boring, “Troy” was okay. Maybe I was in a really easy-to-please mood on Saturday afternoon, though. I enjoyed the one-on-one fighting much more than the big epic battle scenes. I think the LOTR trilogy has ruined me for all other epic battle movies. LOTR is the pinnacle of perfection in that regard and I doubt any other movie will ever measure up.
The big negative of this movie was the script. The screenwriter was just bad bad bad and it didn’t help that Brad “I Can Barely Act Better than Ben Affleck” Pitt was in it. Orlando Bloom did a fine job, as did Eric Bana, as Paris and Hector, respectively. But bad writing made this a seriously flawed movie.
Two Trojan Horses out of five.
