Horribly inaccurate

Rape of Mythology.

Helen of Troy was nothing short of rape of Homer's Iliad and other sources.

Cassandra was portrayed as having the gift of seeing the future as a child. According to the myths she got it from Apollo when she agreed to be his lover. However she later spurned him and so she was cursed that no one will believe her. So according to the writer, Apollo lusted after a five year old child :)

Helen walking nude was good viewing but has no truth. But then again, in the end all one will remember from this TV movie are shots of Sienna Guillory's perfect ass ...

The whole thing about Achilles is absolutely scandalous .. Despite his great strength Achilles actually wanted to avoid battle .. In fact he argued with Agamemnon over a slave girl and stopped fighting .. So the greeks started losing ground ... Here he is portrayed as a retarded warrior. An insult to the greatest Greek warrior since Hercules.

Then after much pleading Achilles sent Patroclus to fight for him in his armour ... The TV movie portrayed Achilles as a monster wearing no armour .. Another falsehood .. Achilles in fact had his new armour built by the god Hephaestus ...

There is no mention of Patroclus here ... And Paris is shown as a great fighter - He was not .. Troy actually relied solely on Hector's capabilities... Here Hector was not portrayed as the great hero he was...

Hector's defeat and slaying of Patroclus finally aroused Achilles' anger and he took his revenge over Hector in a fair fight (not like the one in the TV)... The TV confrontation of Achilles and Hector was sheer stupidity.

Achilles returned Hector's body .. something the writer of the TV movie forgot ...

Achilles was later killed by Paris's arrow which struck his heel but not like the way in showed on the movie ... And the whole myth of his vulnerable heel was left unexplained. Maybe the writer didnt know himself.

Whatever happened to the great Ajax ... his great battle with Hector .. and his subsequent suicide ..

Paris was killed by the famous archer Philoctetes who owned the bow and arrow of Hercules ... But obviously that was too complicated for this piece of TV crap.

In the movie they showed Clytemnestra in Troy - rubbish. She killed Agamemnon once he had returned. There is absolutely no truth that Agamemnon raped Helen as is shown ... The acting was all wooden .. wasting good actors in a ridiculous adaptation...

Hardly any part of the trojan war was touched upon .. And those parts touched were displayed with breathtaking lack of accuracy. Who do the director/writer think they are ? Homer? Virgil ?

Only if one is completely ignorant of Greek myths, one can tolerate this piece of nonsense. Rating it one out of ten is being generous.

Great parody of Iliad

Ii just watched this movie and I must say it's awful.I don't care if it has suspense,fun or whatever.To me it matters that it is really imprecise.This movie has nothing to do with the Iliad.The screenwriters must have never read Homer's poem,that's sure. i don't want to expand to the the wrong plot details,because then I would have to write the whole screenplay from the start.

In addition to clothes are SO not according the time of the story,which I remind takes place in 11th century b.C..The clothes in this film are roman empire's era clothes.And for goodness sake;did you just see those suits of armour?I was under the impression that Russel Crow would jump in the scene in a moment!

And last(but probably the thing that made me laugh the hardest) (quote from this ridiculous movie) -...and the world is spinning...

Wow that guy was really forward from his era!!!!

Desecrate something else, please....

I was getting ready to watch "Troy" when I heard of these mini-series which was on TV as a complete movie. And then I made the terrible mistake....and I watched it....

**SPOILERS**

Nothing I ever watched or read or heard ever made me more furious than this unspeakable desecration of Homer's Iliad.NO, ladies and gentlemen, Paris was not borne as Alexander, neither was he abandoned on the mountains.No, Menelaus did not become Paris' friend neither did he ask him whether Helen was talking about him or not.EVER!!And, for your information, NO, Achilles was not a professional wrestler, nor was he bold, or mad and he did not kill Hector without a reason. He killed him because Hector had killed Patroklus first, whom Achilles loved.And much more than that, which I was not able to watch, because my TV is not expendable... But, I guess, all these are meaningless details to those, whose brains are not too sharp and their education not that high...And for those who had not been taught that people should respect what's above them, older than them, unreachable by them.... I have only one request from them:Go and desecrate something else! Homer's saga is not a toy to play with!And if you ever feel the need to "shoot" Odyssey too, please....DON'T....
