That said, it's a fun adventure movie, and we enjoyed it. It has a great cast, including Brad Pitt, Eric Bana, Orlando Bloom, Diane Kruger, Peter O'Toole, Brendan Gleeson, Sean Bean, and Julie Christie.
The New York Times says, "But for what it is -a big, expensive, occasionally campy action movie full of well-known actors speaking in well-rounded accents- "Troy" is not bad." Empire Online concludes, "Bruising battles and some stirring performances make Troy enjoyable, if rather long. But if audiences can forgive the camp, they'll still struggle to empathise with the characters."
Roger Ebert gives it 2 out of 4 stars and says, "Homer's estate should sue." Rotten Tomatoes has a critics rating of 54% but an audience score that's higher at 73%.
