Surprise and disappointment
12 April 2010 | by (Minneapolis, USA) – See all my reviews

" The Trojan Horse" is a political thriller that surprises and disappoints on many levels. It has an original premise, Canada is joining the USA.And then the more and more blurred line between good and bad guys, and of course, the oil, cause of just about every war in last 25 years. The problem with this movie are the obvious, crude references to daily politics, and the people that we all remember with shudder. That just wasn't necessary, we would get the not so subtle message anyway. The world of power is a world of ruthless, disturbed people and they can't be trusted. I knew that for a very long time, but nevertheless I found this flick entertaining, but forgettable.
