"Troy - what we should've seen at the movies..."
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

This Directors Cut version is well worth the money and turns a good film into a great film. Unlike some other ‘Director Cut’ film renditions, Troy really benefits from the extra 30 mins – valuable detail is added to the plot, tension is built between the main characters and there's a far more realistic feel to the battle and romance scenes. Watching Director Wolfgang Pettersen's com­mentary afterwards, I can understand why he was so passionate about getting this version out to audiences. It's just a shame the studios didn't let us see it back in 2004!

"Gritty Mythology at it's peak"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Well where to start. I remember going to the theaters with my friends not 4 years ago and watching this epic movie. However, 4 years on, the Directors Cut is an additional 30minutes to the already 150minute movie. whopping in at 3hrs 16mins! however, if your a Greek Mythology freak like me your sure to love it, Brad and Eric pull off a great performance.

Troy was an excellent movie which most action fans will love – non stop action from start to finish

Description

Brad Pitt picks up a sword and brings a muscular, brooding presence to the role of Greek warrior Achilles in this spectacular retelling of The Iliad. Orlando Bloom and Diane Kruger play the legendary lovers who plunge the world into war, Eric Bana portrays the prince who dares to confront Achilles, and Peter O'Toole rules Troy as King Priam. Director Wolfgang Petersen recreates a long-ago world of bireme warships, clashing armies, the massive fortress city and the towering Trojan Horse.
