Troy is a good and bad movie….in different ways. If I was a movie critic just looking for the ways troy was a good action movie I would say it was excellent. It has great war scenes with realistic fighting and a great, action-packed, storyline. If I was a history teacher I would be looking for a Iliad-accurate movie, and I would say it stinks.
Achilles does not give Hector, the brother of Paris back to the king of Troy to give a peaceful burial to, oh no, he hooks Hector on to the back of his chariot and drags him around so much in his arrogance that Paris gets aggravated and shoots Achilles with an arrow right in the heel. But in this movie, Achilles gets killed by Paris during the big fight after the Trojan horse is opened up. But, altogether, Troy was a good movie and I recommend it to action movie enthusiasts but not history enthusiasts.Powered by Sidelines
