Haven't read "The Illiad," haven't even finished "The Odyssey" by James Joyce. I saw the movie today. FWIW, I was one of two people in the theater for a 3:00 showing.

Aaanyway, other than some of the same archery-related impossibilities that plagued Orlando Bloom in LOTR (anodized aluminum arrows with nylon fletching in LOTR, fiberglass recurve bow in Troy), it was a decent bit of eye candy. B+ acting, generally, Pitt does a decent turn as Achilles, yadda yadda. Hey, speaking of whom, any thoughts on the rumor Pitt used a body double? I could go either way, actually.

So, basically, worth the $6.50 matinee price I paid, but just barely.
