too twisted - not credible

I just want to emphasize the following: the movie is too twisted - (soap opera style). This is really destroying for credibility.

Paris and Elena loves each other - they both know they will start a war, a lot of people would dye, they both doesn't want this, but ... thy can't stop themselves. Each one try separately to end the conflict but .. somehow they dont finish the try.

So love is worthy to go for a war (Priam say this ! also). But not any love. Pure love between Briseis and Ahile is not worthy. Paris himself (who started the war for ... love) kills the big pure love between Ahile and Briseis. He shot arrows on Ahile while his own cousin desperately begs him to stop. There is too much inconsistency between Hector and Paris behavior: Hector is ready to start a war for Paris's feelings while Paris himself doesn't care for his cousin's feelings. Strange and too obvious twisted scenario.

In the movie, Priam, the good king of Troy did everything he could to loose Troy. All major bad decisions were taken by him. This is really strange. He was the last one to decide: when it was a debate between attacking the Greeks on the beach (sustained by his priest) and not attacking because this attack will reunite the Greeks (the mirmidons with Ahile were not fighting yet) - sustained by Hector - the biggest military general in Troy - Priam decided to listen to the priest. Terrible decision.

Again, when it was told by his own son Paris to burn the horse, not to bring him into the city, he took again the decision based on the priest advice: it is a gift from gods and brought into the city. Fights ends after this decision - again taken by Priam!

Very strange to put the responsibility of such big mistakes on such a nice character like Priam. Seems for me like a big childish screen play error.

The story of Illiada is difficult to tell, I agree. The gods are missing from the movie, the big speeches also.

So what is rest ? What should I understand ? Is ok to love - even impossible love which starts a war, is also ok to kill the impossible love (Briseis and Ahile). Is ok to let your sons fight to death and let the gods decide. A cowardly escape is accepted also. Psychopath kings, gentle kings, tricks and sleights .. and everyone speaking about random things like: honor, love, etc. Courage, yes - this is I think the single constant moral value in the movie.

In fact I had the feeling that the scenario could have change every moment like in a soap opera. Wow. Such flexibility. In fact I see it like a scenario problem that shows inconsistency and lack of credibility. By the way: this is just a Hollywood movie, you don't know Illiada after watching the movie :)

Everything Was Great Except the Story

A lot to like about this film. It has epic scope, great sets and costumes, and masterful fight scenes. And yet...I stopped caring toward the end. It was all fight, fight, fight; no hmmm. The Trojans got to Greece, and that's where the entire movie plays out. Would've been much better with some more ocean scenes. It wasn't a short movie either, so it could have developed some better sub-plots. The female characters had virtually nothing to do; Brad Pitt's biceps got more screen time than all the ladiers put together.

Recommended only for those who love fight scenes.
