      An Epic of Epics

          Comments about Troy Director's Cut Blu-ray:

          Great epic movie based on great epic poems (The Iliad, The Aeneid, and to a lesser extent the Greek Epic Cycle). I was pleased that the movie somewhat faithfully followed the plot as given by the poems. One big omission: the "gods" are mentioned several times, especially by King Priam, but otherwise are not a part of the plot as they were in the Iliad. Brad Pitt did well as self-centered Greek hero-warrior Achilles. Eric Bana did even better as Trojan hero-warrior Hector.

          Excellent Retelling of a Great Epic Poem

          Comments about Troy Director's Cut Blu-ray:

          While liberties were taken (compressing a ten-year war into days, weeks) and changing historic facts to enhance the movie were okay. Agamennon was murdered on his return by his wife's lover for having sacrificed their daughter for the war effort ten years earlier. Having him die at Troy is befitting ... not much change in the facts. Menelaus getting it also adds to the drama (the idea of right over wrong). The other subtilities also were good, enhancing the epic poem. I only wished for an epilogue where the viewer is told that Aeneas goes on to establish the Roman Republic and eventually conquers Greece.
          More character development would have been nice, including the sacrifice of Agamennon's daughter and the tension that caused with his wife.
          But this is first class epic film telling and entertainment and should not be missed. They don't make them like this anymore!

          Comments about Troy Director's Cut Blu-ray:

          Where are the gods and the magic of greek antique mystic?
          I'm truly disappointed in whole- flat characters, especially Achilles, Paris, Helena and Priamos. You are expecting MORE of Helena, most beautiful woman of Aniquity-goddess of love and Beauty.
          And These naive and meaningless dialogues and fights.
          I DID actually read Homer and other books with this theme- like Marion Zimmer-Bradleys "The Firebrand". There are authors who actually DO research before Setting up a book or film.
          And this is what I am dearly missing in this film- characters and situations to really FEEL with and REAL dialogues and I don't know... this Special something I think the gods of greek mythology would have giventhis movie.
          I just hope the next film featuring Troya will be better in every aspect.
