Overall: kinda cool, kinda boring, overdone.
Summary: a (.....) hollywood version of the war between Troy and Greece. It has all the heroes, the locations and mentions the gods, you see a Trojan Horse etc, but it just doensn't follow the legend. This story is told as if the Legend (aka Myth) of this battle was historic. All mythilogical elements are removed (there are still references to the gods but that's it). You get some of the major battles that look great and some great sets and costuming.
The Good: the battles were greatly coreagraphed. It will remind you of Braveheart in that respect. They also look very deadly, with weapons penetrating and blood present. The acting was good. The sets were impressive when they weren't trying to be (see the bad). The story was interesting, if not accurate.
The Bad: The worst part of this is it was trying too hard to be epic. It was trying to be another sparticus, but by using CG instead of thousands of extras. It was so forced that it was obvious and annoying. The plot was intersting but really dragged at times. The good guys were good and the bad guys were bad, not the case with the actual legend. The heroes had no bad qualities, and the villans were utterally evil. The trojan horse scene was just dumb, and the Achillies tendon even worse.
The Ugly: all historical referance. The wrong people died, the wrong people lived and a dumb love story was put on top of the whole stinking thing. I don't understand why they change these things. The gods were not involved. No god made armour, no tournament to win it, no cursing, no suicides, no insanity (okay except for maybe Agamemnon who wasn't supposed to be insane).
Overall: it was cool to see. There were some great battles, everyone looked great, but it had little to do with it's inspirational source The Illiad. It got borring at times, but the action pretty much made up for it. Mainly this just promised to be a lot better then it was.
