This is a 2004 American epic adventure drama directed by Wolfgang Petersen, loosely based on Homer's Iliad, though the film narrates the entire story of the decade-long Trojan War.
However, it is condensed into little more than a couple of weeks insead of the fight among Hector, Achilles and Agamemnon in the ninth year.
Played by Brad Pitt, Achilles leads his Myrmidons along with the rest of the Greek army invading the historical city of Troy.
According to the ancient story, the war originated from a quarrel between the goddesses Hera, Athena, and Aphrodite.
Unfortunately, however, none of these goddesses show up in the film.
Yet, it is an action-packed spectacle with great visial effects, thrills and splendour.

Brad Pitt and Eric Bana gave the best performance. Brad Pitt made his Achilles so stoic and still arrogant. Orlando Bloom also stood out. Another great classic!

I wanted to like the movie, but I really can't. The cinematography is lovely, but I cannot bring myself to care about any of the characters who all seem two-dimensional and cartoony.

Wonderful movies, great actors, and amazing extras!
Especially, I was so impressed by the performances of Brad Pitt and Eric Bana who played the role of Hector.

Homer's The Iliad, one of the great literary works of all time is reduced to pure spectacle with trite dialogue seemingly written for, and by, a 12-year-old. This movie is a far cry from others in this genre, Gladiator and Gates of heaven. Homer is rolling in this crypt.

Better than I thought it might be: some damage to the original story line, but less than I suspected would be the case. An interesting attempt to make Achilles non-mythic.
