Movie Review: Troy (Monday, May 17, 2004)

Review: Epic!

Let me just say: Brad Pitt rules my world. He makes a serious bad-ass as Achilles. Peter Jackson could take some lessons for this movie: you'll note, there were no Elves at the siege on Troy. The same was true of Helm's Deep. Okay, there was one — Orlando Bloom. Too bad he plays a wuss. He's a pretty wuss, but still a wuss. Speaking of pretty, oh my god, there are some fine babes in this film. And they, along with Brad Pitt, spend most of the film mostly naked. But basically, everyone but Orlando Bloom kicks ass. There is lots of cool eye candy, including a vast armada, and lots of fire. There was a little surgery I could have done without, but otherwise, despite the violence, the gore did not go over the top. Just as exciting as Gladiator, but with a prettier cast. A definite choice when it comes out on DVD.
