Movie Reviews

What else is hiding up in Canada - come on down!
Mary Taylor | Round Rock, Texas United States | 02/28/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Wow! Talk about gripping and intellectually surprising! This film is superb! I had previously been unable to find a copy of the miniseries that preceded it (H20), but I went on another quest after watching only part of Trojan Horse. I will now have the complete set to relish. What a treat this is! I'm not all that fond of action / political thrillers, but I think this one will (or should) become a classic. I am constantly drawn further in and can never see what comes up next. Very well written, directed, acted. Do not miss this film - you won't regret the 3 hours one little bit. You will want more!

Aside: Where can we find out about more good Canadian TV and film offerings while they are newly released? I've also bought _Slings and Arrows_, a completely different genre of film but equally witty, engaging, and top drawer storytelling from Canada with thought-provoking forays into exploration the human heart and psyche. Cheer up, Hamlet, indeed!"
Refreshing, Lengthy, and Fun
J. Thorne | USA | 02/26/2009
(3 out of 5 stars)

"The Trojan Horse is perhaps a bit longer than many audiences would prefer and has a style of cinematography that is distinctly Canadian. For me - surrounded in Blockbuster by Hollywood films with different names but the same recipe - this story was refreshingly different.

The story centers around the absorption of the Canadian provinces into the U.S. and the resulting political intrigue surrounding one Canadian man's bid to insert himself as the next U.S. president.

While fictitious (and at times perhaps even ridiculous), the story contains certain elements of truth about U.S. politics, the rigors of the presidency, our current U.S. foreign affairs, and the strangely ambivalent relationship between the U.S. and Canada.

Good cast. Good intrigue. Worth watching."
Excellent Political Thriller

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Although 3hrs long, this is edge-of-your-seat entertainment that's intelligent, witty and enthralling. Its got Paul Gross so how could they go wrong? The dialogue is sooooo good. Just great. [Btw, sequel to H20]"
Thought provoking
Dac | Phoenix | 04/15/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Short and sweet this movie was worth watching. Yes some of it was far fetched but then again, who knows how much of it could actually be reality today. I had to give it five stars."
