Moderate violence, Low level coarse language


Throughout time, men have waged war. Some for power, some for glory, some for honor - and some for love. In ancient Greece, the passion of two of literature's most notorious lovers, Paris, Prince of Troy (ORLANDO BLOOM) and Helen (DIANE KRUGER), Queen of Sparta, ignites a war that will devastate a civilization. When Paris spirits Helen away from her husband, King Menelaus (BRENDAN GLEESON), it is an insult that cannot be suffered. Familial pride dictates that an affront to Menelaus is an affront to his brother Agamemnon (BRIAN COX), powerful King of the Mycenaeans, who soon unites all the massive tribes of Greece to steal Helen back from Troy in defense of his brother's honor.

  • love this, right up my alley. Highly recomended watch for lovers of this genre. 2.5 hr movie not boring for one minute. Great acting, storyline (historic), whole thing great

  • What can I say. OMG Brad Pitt at his most gorgeous. I didn't think this would be my style of movie, however, it was brilliant. It took me a long while to watch it and finally after much urging from my friends I took the plunge. Yes!

  • Remarkably good film... although not entirely based on stories, yet are all narratives not retold a little across time? I think it was well-acted, engaging and and quite emotional too. 4 stars.

  • Buffed bodies, 'slight' detraction from Homer's version but a great visual flick - average performance by Bana, and Bloom's character a little unbelievable. But Pitt surprisingly outperforms.

  • Well, they did say "based on Homer's Iliad", that was the only thing correct about the story. The names were right, some of the acting was good, but the rest was garbage. The Trojan war ran for over 10 years. Paris was hit by a poison arrow and died before the fall of Troy. Helen was Queen of Sparta, the line ran through the females. Menalaus only became king through marriage to her.
