I saw Troy last night and I was both amused and very disappointed. I came into the thing expecting them to cut out a great deal of stuff, but I wasn't expecting them to go about completely rewriting the majority of it and changing the characters themselves. Worst of all, though, is that they decided to pretty much write out the vast majority of the hero contingent of the Trojan War. Basically, the movie was loosely based on the concept of the Trojan War and has relatively little to do with The Iliad. Besides my disgust, I thought that it was rather well done and if they had chosen to title the movie Achilles: The Movie, I would have been totally cool with the whole thing (the The Movie part is rather key).
