Big mistake to watch this one.
21 April 2003 | by See all my reviews

I watched the first part, and couldn't bear to watch part 2. The main question in my mind was: Did the people who made this movie even read the story of Helen, Paris, and the Trojan War? It seemed that they didn't. The acting is mediocre, but the sets are good. The storm at sea near the end of part 1 was contrived. A sailor is washed overboard, but I could have sworn he jumped. Probably because he realized what a dud this film is.
