Roger Ebert Full Review
Average The movie sidesteps the existence of the Greek gods, turns its heroes into action movie cliches and demonstrates that we're getting tired of computer-generated armies. Better a couple of hundred sweaty warriors than two masses of 50,000 men marching toward one another across a sea of special effects.

USA Today Full Review
Good At just under 3 hours, Troy is too long and starts off pokily, with slow-moving establishing shots that scream 'epic!' But it emerges as a gripping, well-told adaptation of one of the oldest human dramas.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

We collected 283 moviegoer opinions. The opinions are very high, but I've seen them higher. It's obvious most enjoyed "Troy" very much, but there were maybe 15% who only rated it as "Good" or "Fair," which is fairly low, especially for such an epic movie. From these opinions it appears others had the same reaction as I did to the movie. I enjoyed it very much, but felt the story was lacking. Because Brad Pitt's character is a ruthless killer, I never felt any compassion for him as I did for Mel Gibson's character in "Braveheart." "Troy" isn't as good a movie as "Braveheart," but the vast majority of you will enjoy it very much, and that's what's important. "TROY" IS A "MUST SEE" ON THE BIG SCREEN!

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Throughout time, men have waged war. Some for power, some for glory, some for honor – and some for love. 

In ancient Greece, the passion of two of literature's most notorious lovers, Paris, Prince of Troy (ORLANDO BLOOM) and Helen (DIANE KRUGER), Queen of Sparta, ignites a war that will devastate a civilization. When Paris spirits Helen away from her husband, King Menelaus (BRENDAN GLEESON), it is an insult that cannot be suffered. Familial pride dictates that an affront to Menelaus is an affront to his brother Agamemnon (BRIAN COX), powerful King of the Mycenaeans, who soon unites all the massive tribes of Greece to steal Helen back from Troy in defense of his brother's honor. 

In truth, Agamemnon's pursuit of honor is corrupted by his overwhelming greed – he needs to conquer Troy to seize control of the Aegean, thus ensuring the supremacy of his already vast empire. The walled city, under the leadership of King Priam (PETER O'TOOLE) and defended by mighty Prince Hector (ERIC BANA), is a citadel that no army has ever been able to breach. One man alone stands as the key to victory or defeat over Troy – Achilles (BRAD PITT), believed to be the greatest warrior alive. 

Arrogant, rebellious and seemingly invincible, Achilles has allegiance to nothing and no one, save his own glory. It is his insatiable hunger for eternal renown that leads him to attack the gates of Troy under Agamemnon's banner – but it will be love that ultimately decides his fate.

Two worlds will go to war for honor and power. Thousands will fall in pursuit of glory. And for love, a nation will burn to the ground.
