All of us who have read the works of Homer would be more excited to see what is look like of Helen and the magnificent work of the wooden horse of the Trojans. The Trojan Horse in the film was not enough to justify what we have read from the story, it was supposed to be one of the major events. From my point of view the movie makers will make you feel ignorant because they may think that you are not aware of Greek mythology. Ive seen also that the actors tare not very well suited for there characters, like Achilles could be more like a hero to this movie, or Paris could had been more persuasive than to be shy because he must is getting Helens attention, remember she is the most beautiful woman in this story.
Maybe some of the scenery in this film is good but some are not. The settings of the tents, the barbaric ways of the people, and the costumes in this film was acceptable. When it comes to artistically design of the film as describes from the book it is not well presented as a whole.
They have forgotten that the war lasted long, it could have should that other people would be aging by that time. This film lacks from enticing the audience to watch it until the end. I think if someone is not knowledgeable to this film they will chose to pick one of the actors like Brad Pitt to wait for an exciting moments of the scene. Worst some of us maybe caught sleeping for the it didnt really made an impact to the people who had a great expectation to this film.
What I like to this film is that the courage of making this movie, because nowadays most of the young ones are not familiar or well informed to this kind of epic story. They have got my vote for being one of our reminders to learn more things from our ancient stories, what the great writers of the world have contributed to feed the world about cultures and tradition. Like for example in this story they have implicated to pay respect for the dead, the war had stopped for twelve days because of Hectors funeral.
This only shows that in even in the battle, there are somethings that will leave us follow traditions and respect for each other remains. The good thing is what great artists from the past, has provided us a long lasting work of art. We know very well that up to now we benefit from this because artists today are still using it. I believe that whatever cultures or histories in the past that we have, will always affects our present lives, though we may not be aware. If you will really look at it, this things really helps us to cope in this world together with our past.
