Storyline

It is the year 1250 B.C. during the late Bronze age. Two emerging nations begin to clash after Paris, the Trojan prince, convinces Helen, Queen of Sparta, to leave her husband, Menelaus, and sail with him back to Troy. After Menelaus finds out that his wife was taken by the Trojans, he asks his brother Agamemnon to help him get her back. Agamemnon sees this as an opportunity for power. So they set off with 1,000 ships holding 50,000 Greeks to Troy. With the help of Achilles, the Greeks are able to fight the never before defeated Trojans. But they come to a stop by Hector, Prince of Troy. The whole movie shows their battle struggles and the foreshadowing of fate in this remake by Wolfgang Petersen of Homer's "The Iliad."

Quotes

[first lines]
Odysseus: [voiceover] Men are haunted by the vastness of eternity. And so we ask ourselves: will our actions echo across the centuries? Will strangers hear our names long after we are gone, and wonder who we were, how bravely we fought, how fiercely we loved?

It's a great adventure film that offers a wide range of expectations of the genre.
31 January 2013 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

In the year 1193 a. C., Paris (Orlando Bloom), son of Priam and prince of Troy, abducted Helen (Diane Kruger), wife of Menelaus, King of Sparta, which triggers the Trojan War, in which Greeks and Trojans face . The Greek army besieged the city of Troy for over ten years. Achilles (Brad Pitt) was the great hero of the Greeks, while Hector (Eric Bana), the eldest son of Priam (Peter O'Toole), King of Troy, represented the only hope of salvation for the city.

Wolfgang Petersen's film benefited from the effect "Gladiator" and offered the possibility of expanding commercial horizons towards a film that seemed gone. The hand of the director knew gather show off an interesting story, noble and unsweetened, reasoning the causes and motivations of his characters, taking their time and giving large doses of artistic genius. If then we were accustomed to battles (Braveheart, Gladiator) "Troy" epic again the limits of the legend, which allowed Petersen to take some personal leave based on the "Iliad" of Homer.

"Troy" recently returned with a new version that included 30 minutes of footage, while not changing the story dramatically, they emphasized that in its most violent, inflaming and giving more power to the stories of the main characters . The result is a film studio, worked well in not missing the show as main weapon. Its key strengths, are founded on the roles of Brad Pitt (Achilles) and Eric Bana (Hector), dwarfing the story between Helena and Paris which is what gives the story plot.

It is the personality and the clash between Pitt and Bana interpretive works best in the film, along with the superb soundtrack, with a song that touches your heart, "remember me". The music is perfectly adapted to the time when the film is.
