What else is hiding up in Canada - come on down!
2 March 2009 | by See all my reviews

Wow! Talk about gripping and intellectually surprising! This film is superb! I had previously been unable to find a copy of the miniseries that preceded it (H20), but I went on another quest after watching only part of "The Trojan Horse". I will now have the complete set to relish. What a treat this is! I'm not all that fond of action / political thrillers, but I think this one will (or should) become a classic. I am constantly drawn further in and can never see what comes up next. Very well written, directed; acted. Do not miss this film - you won't regret the 3 hours one little bit. You will want more! I agree with poster on the discussion board. If Tom McLaughlin is the bad guy, I say - let's elect him not once but twice and hang on for the ride! I don't see his character as a liar and a cheat but rather as a perhaps flawed hero with noble ideas that I would love to see pushed forward.

I loved the speech he made to the reporter - "Citadel on a hill? (We should all consider ourselves) citizens of the world!" meaning let's get serious about holding up our end of the bargain as a member of the global community. I want to see a sequel where he carries out his program! I think what he calls for is doable and would make a huge advance in uplifting civilization for all earth's inhabitants.

And don't miss the predecessor, H2O!
