      Audience Member An inordinate portion of the film is committed to getting Helen from Sparta to Troy, but this episode does not seem to follow the actual myths as I’ve read about them. It may have been a 3.5-star film in its own day, but the 2003 mini-series surpassed it before itself being outdone by Wolfgang Peterson’s epic, “Troy.” Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/02/20 Full Review Audience Member Even though Helen of Troy closer to the source material than 2004s Troy, Helen of Troy fails at delivering a good movie. The problems start by the underwritten characters who happen to also be unlikable, the awful procduction values, bad action sequences and CGI, bad acting, awful screenplay and dialogue. Can not recommend it Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/03/23 Full Review Audience Member The sack of Troy, it literally sucks. Nothing to do with the story of Troy I knew so far. Agamnenon is depicted as a sinister dick, and Menelaus as a coward. They find inside the city of Troy. It's more faithful than Pitt's film Troy but still it's a very cheesy movie Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/27/23 Full Review Audience Member Old fx for that year , good actors , grim dark inaccurate , I much prefer odyssey , because it was more mythical , This felt like 2014's Noah that ripps off Gilgamesh , Some violence toned down , not into drama , Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/09/23 Full Review Audience Member There's too much going on, which makes Helen of Troy feel like less of a mythological, legendary war movie turn into a poor soap opera. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review Audience Member it was so great!!! The most unexpected movie I've ever seen! Nothing really went like I thought even though I've had heard stuff from around. The scene when Menelaus screamed for his brother t leave her was such a big scene. He loved her from his heart even though she left him. The most tremendous scene was when Helena's sister killed her husband Agamemnon, it was liked she had spared all her anger and sorrow and put it through her knife killing him. Also the scene with Agamemnon killing his own daughter was savage! How someone could kill his own innocent daughter only for the reason the be able to go to war is just awful. Achilles... The guy acting Achilles was not the guy I was imagining Achilles to be like and also the Achilles I've read about is a hero unlike in this movie he is a savage bastard killing for amusement. The way he killed Hector was disgustingly awful! How he rode around with his horse dragging him... But it was an awesome movie, I totally loved it!
