At first I used to despise this film because it seemed like it was trying to be bigger and more flashy than it needed to be. Eventually i grew to appreciate the epic scale this film required. Ridley Scott is an experienced director doing things far more challenging than most and it is best exemplified in Troy where he gathered some of the world’s biggest actors to help tell a story that isn’t super popular or marketable to western audiences. Some of the actions scenes are really well designed and constructed. The story and dialogue itself sort of loses importance to me because I’m sure we are all familiar with it. The set pieces are quite remarkable though.
It may not be entirely loyal to the epic story of Troy, yet it manages to be a thrilling production displaying action, relationships and war. The cast is very good, with amazing filming locations as well. Whoever decides to watch this movie will definitely have a good time
