Movie Reviews

Why oh why can't they just follow the story???
Josephus | Knoxville, TN United States | 06/30/2004
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Hector killing Menelaus, Achilles dies inside Troy, Agamemnon killed by Helen, Paris escapes???? Give me a break, they should have name the film "TROY . . . well, almost" The 3 stars are for the special effects, it gets one star for the story."
Good documentary let down by budget finishing

"This presentation is a fairly "out of the box" history channel style interpretation of the history of Troy, and covers most aspects of the story adequately. I couldn't help thinking that the production of this DVD was rushed in an attempt to cash in on the recent Movie release though, as the production quality has a distinct cheap and hurried feel to it. That having been said, what the program does show is that Troy is a Mythical story: added to and adapted over the centuries and based (albeit loosely) on the epic poem by Homer. Add to this the then various subjective interpretations of that piece of literature over the years, and then re translations by contemporary scholars and you can understand that historical "accuracy" is more of a best guess. Those people that are constantly complaining about the recent movie and other dramatic interpretations of this famous story should watch this and remember that fact.
The DVD has little or no extra's but my copy is actually region free coded which was interesting, and certainly adds to the under $10 value. This isn't a great documentary, but it's not bad either and if you can endure the dry voiceover and basement production you will certainly find it's worth owning. Enjoy"

"It's amazing how bad this DVD is. It consistently veers off-topic and stays there for lengthy amounts of time. There are sections about the city of Bath, England, and information about Roman laxatives, but little about the story of Troy itself. Towards the beginning, there are series of pictures without any narration, and, in general, the whole thing is a muddle. It leaves out more than it includes, and never mentions Dido, Virgil, or modern archeological deductions about Hisarlik. It does tell a lot about the ancient Greeks--including an entire section on the Parthenon--and assumes that Trojans were Greek."
Now what was that??

"Personally, I find the story of Troy very interesting. This DVD was very informative, but hard to understand. The narrator's accent was difficult to tolerate, due to the continual mispronunciations of the characters names. The documentary also seemed to trail off to other subjects that didn't have anything to do with the story of Troy. Otherwise, there is about 50 minutes of interesting information, but beware of the frightening clay masks they use when naming each character."
