In year 1250 B.C. during the late Bronze age, two emerging nations begin to clash. Paris, the Trojan prince, convinces Helen, Queen of Sparta, to leave her husband Menelaus, and sail with him back to Troy. After Menelaus finds out that his wife was taken by the Trojans, he asks his brother Agamemnom to help him get her back. Agamemnon sees this as an opportunity for power. So they set off with 1,000 ships holding 50,000 Greeks to Troy. With the help of Achilles, the Greeks are able to fight the never before defeated Trojans.

More Info:
  • Michael Wilmington

    In a league with Hollywood's top historical epics, ancient or otherwise. It's stunningly handsome film, with an equally stunning cast and engrossing story.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • William Arnold

    An exhilarating piece of epic filmmaking that it pulls you in, sweeps you up and works very much as its own thing.

    Seattle Post-Intelligencer Full Review
  • Jeff Giles

    Troy is a fun, energizing piece of summer entertainment, even if it doesn't have the depth or the sustained intensity of "Gladiator."

    Newsweek Full Review
  • Richard Corliss

    In this vigorous, stalwart epic, they blend martial breadth and emotional intimacy, honor and obsession, romance and machismo to show the glamour and folly of war.

    Time Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    Troy lacks the focus of Gladiator, not to mention that Oscar winner's scrappy wit. But why kick a gift horse when you're in summer-movie heaven?

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • David Sterritt

    In sum, this is hardly an "Iliad" adaptation for the ages. But if you're hankering for sand, sandals, and swordplay, this could be the movie for you.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Jack Mathews

    A "Ben-Hur"-size epic with beefcake, beauty, outsize heroes, flashy duels and epic battles. There are breathtaking vistas, taut political intrigues, dangerous romantic liaisons and one of the greatest wardrobes ever assembled for a costume drama.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Carrie Rickey

    When the film focuses on the Trojans, it's splendid. But when Troy attempts to sort out the competing agendas of the Greeks, it drags.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    All Hollywood and no Homer, but within its limits, it's a vigorous, entertaining movie.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    Entertainingly epic eye candy.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Sara Brady

    Wolfgang Petersen's Troy recalls an age when Hollywood not only gambled on but flourished with grandiose epics and casts of thousands, and brings megawatt star power to what is, at root, a brilliantly told story.

    Premiere Full Review
  • Desson Thomson

    That's the only way to enjoy Wolfgang Petersen's nearly three-hour epic: as a Pitt vehicle. In a role that requires larger-than-life dimensions, he's pretty terrific.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Stephen Hunter

    Far from great, but much farther from awful, Troy offers several popcorn buckets' worth of good old-fashioned time at the movies.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Stanley Kauffmann

    When a spectacular film rests on at least a minimal armature of character and cogent action, as Troy does, we can just sink back and enjoy. What we enjoy is the sovereignty over time and place and the force of gravity that film has given to the world.

    The New Republic Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    For a movie whose characters are so preoccupied with immortality, Troy is curiously forgettable.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    There are times when Troy is stirring and engaging. However, at least as often, it is flat.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Michael Sragow

    This handsome and occasionally exciting movie flounders because it confuses Tinseltown glamour with legendary heroism and beauty.

    Baltimore Sun Full Review
  • Pete Vonder Haar

    Isn’t a bad film, simply an unspectacular one, which might be a more damaging statement.

    Film Threat Full Review
  • Will Lawrence

    Bruising battles and some stirring performances make Troy enjoyable, if rather long. But if audiences can forgive the camp, they'll still struggle to empathise with the characters.

    Empire Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    Except for a few brilliant flashes, mostly from Peter O'Toole as Hector’s father, the Trojans' magisterially woebegone King Priam, Troy is a fairly routine action picture with an advanced case of grandeuritis.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Bill Gallo

    Homer would be hard-pressed to find any remaining shred of "The Iliad" in this over-the-top entertainment. It has a lot of loud passion but not much poetry, and that's appropriate for a movie that could well be subtitled My Big Fat Greek Bloodletting.

    Dallas Observer Full Review
  • Dana Stevens

    For what it is -- a big, expensive, occasionally campy action movie full of well-known actors speaking in well-rounded accents -- Troy is not bad. It has the blocky, earnest integrity of a classic comic book, and it labors to respect the strangeness and grandeur of its classical sources.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Todd McCarthy

    Despite a sensationally attractive cast and an array of well-staged combat scenes presented on a vast scale, Wolfgang Petersen's highly telescoped rendition of the Trojan War lurches ahead in fits and starts for much of its hefty running time, to OK effect.

    Variety Full Review
  • Jonathan Rosenbaum

    It has plenty of visual sweep, fine action sequences, and, thanks especially to Brad Pitt (as Achilles) and Peter O'Toole (as King Priam), a deeper sense of character than one might expect from a sword-and-sandal epic.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Karen Karbo

    In the end, the battle scenes are elegant and compelling and there are some fine moments when O'Toole, as Priam, summons his inner Lawrence of Arabia and makes us believe that we're actually watching a tragic altercation that brought down great men descended from gods.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Kirk Honeycutt

    A protracted and uninvolving affair in which men battle over issues that audiences may struggle to find compelling, and no central figure emerges to take command of the film.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Roger Ebert

    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.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    At its intermittent best, Troy suggests a primitive pro-wrestling smackdown with epochal consequences. At its worst, it's a throwback to the ham-fisted sword-and-sandal international coproductions of the early 1960s: "The 300 Spartans" with better sets. Barely.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Rick Groen

    All costume and scant drama, the result is a curiously flat spectacle, neither offensive nor compelling.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Lawrence Toppman

    What do you get if you start with the first great narrative of Western civilization, then remove all the psychological complexity and profound characterization? Troy.

    Charlotte Observer Full Review
  • Maitland McDonagh

    Even the dramatic heavy hitters, who include Cox, Gleeson, O'Toole and Julie Christie, as Achilles' mother, are powerless in the face of Pitt's yawning hollowness.

    TV Guide Full Review
  • Rick Kisonak

    Wolfgang Petersen's popcorn epic doesn't fail exactly. It just takes on too much. Modern man is at something of a disadvantage-even aided by his trusty muse, the computer-when presuming to bring the stuff of gods, myths and timeless sacred texts to the big screen.

    Film Threat Full Review
  • Lisa Schwarzbaum

    The result is a pageant long but not deep, noisy but not stirring, expensive but not sumptuous.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Michael Atkinson

    Hardly gay camp for nothing, sword-and-sandal epics cannot help but teeter on the brink of self-mockery, and Troy, for all its grim seriousness, embraces both the clichés and the beefcake.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Kenneth Turan

    Given everything, it's no surprise that the verdict on the film has to be a split decision. Troy is a movie you believe in physically...Believing in Troy emotionally, however, presents a greater challenge.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    Often plays like what it is: a clunky toga-and-sandals picture, with Hollywood compromises abounding.

    Slate Full Review
  • Marc Savlov

    Petersen, a director who knows his way around a crane shot better than almost anyone, rallies his troops but can't ignite his actors, and the end result is the sound and fury of Homer undone.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    Troy isn't so much a simplified retelling of "The Iliad" as a re-imagined version of it, told wholly without imagination. Full Review
  • Jonathan Foreman

    What really wrecks Wolfgang Petersen's Troy is some of the worst casting in recent Hollywood history: The lackluster ensemble hired by the director is overwhelmed by the generally impressive sets and crowd scenes, by the task of playing epic heroes and by David Benioff's rambling, tone-deaf screenplay "inspired by Homer's 'Iliad.'"

    New York Post Full Review
  • Scott Foundas

    The thunderous clashes between armies of computer-generated Trojans and Mycenaeans, when they do arrive, feel decidedly un-epic, as though we were watching a child's toy-box war between plastic figurines. Which makes them perfectly in line with the rest of Petersen's artless approach.

    L.A. Weekly Full Review
  • Keith Phipps

    Troy does look good--so good, in fact, that it takes a while to reveal itself as a thundering dud with much action but little personality, human drama, or brains.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • David Denby

    The movie is successful -- harsh, serious, and both exhilarating and tragic, the right tonal combination for Homer. [17 May 2004, p. 107]
