Movie Review: Troy (2004)


My Rating: 4Stars

This afternoon I went and saw the movie “Troy” at Broadway Cinema, Olympian Plaza. Another one of the movies from my Must See Movies list.

The acting in the movie was okay. The casting was good, they were all the actors one would expect to see for these roles.

One of the best part of this movie are the hidden special effects they used to film the movie. Movie makers had come a long was since the “Lawrence of Arabia” days where they need to hire hundreds of extras for the movie battle scenes.

The story of the movie is well know by all who watch this movie, although the screen writes did a fairly good job in leading the audience to each of the events in the story.

The movie was considered long with its published running time of 164 minutes. I am not sure whether it was the fault of the movie that could not capture me through out the length of the movie, or was it the numerous cell phones that ran and the massive number of people that constantly got out of their seats near the 2 hour mark; washroom breaks or what have you.

Everyone should have known that this to be a long movie, they should be more considerate and gone to the washroom prior to the movie. But then again this is Hong Kong, I may be asking too much for people to be considerate; especially in a movie theatre. That’s another blog to be continued later.

Do everyone else a favor, please remember it is a 2 hours and 44 minutes movie.
