Personally I thought Troy was the biggest copy of Gladiator ever, same style, music and it was just too much like Gladiator. I didn't feel for the characters one bit in Troy whereas in Gladiator I was almost in tears at the end. I enjoy Gladiator much more.

What one did you prefer and why?

Gladiator kicked Troy's arse all over the show. Ok - Troy was based on a real book and all that crap but it was still a weak Hollywood blockbuster of the usual form - bad (or should that be Brad) acting and it was basically action all the way through (apart from the start).

Gladiator was one of those true rarities. A film which has plenty of action, but also a watertight plot and superb acting. That's why it won so many oscars. Another one in that vein is Master and Commander. During that whole film there's not a pesky woman in sight - but it doesn't even feel gay either. And they're sailors!

Pete: Christianity isn't full of massive battles and epic love stories. The Crusades don't even compare.

Gladiator, because it DIDN'T have a 2,700 year-old poem to piss over.

"so is christianity. go figure."


Not true, that's saying that the bible was written when Christ was 4.
Sorry, I just like to be overly-critical. I personally thought both movies were way too glossed over. Meanwhile, Brazil is the greatest film ever made.

I didnt see Troy, and that was a conscious move because it looked so bad from the ads. And the first thing I noticed when I first saw the ad was that they used the same music as Gladiator, which I thought was a poor move, because since Gladiator was such a massive success the music really belonged to that now.

Gladiator is one of my favourite movies of all time. In fact, I might watch it again today.

I liked Troy... but then again it's easy to like movies when you get to see them for free, and a day before everyone else. Oh, the perks of theatre work. ^^

In my oppinion Troy doesn't compare to Gladiator. Gladiator would have to be one of best action movies in recent times. While Troy was an alright movie, I don't think it compared.

They both sucked. There, that solves everything!

Actually, Troy (one of many Troy-based books) was a lot better then the movie. The movie was typicle Hollywood trash. They have to spruce everything up with more sex and volience...Of course Troy was a battle over a women...

They should've spread it over a few films, shown yearly, and then had a spinoff series about Odysseus and his talking dog*. It'll make BILLIONS!

*you know Hollywood would want one of those

well, I MUST say, that I THINK that both movies are BAD!
Becuase it is made by people who do not love history!
They think that old Greece/old Rome are very special events in history.
Which is NOT TRUE!

I do my own archeological reseeach in my country. And we do not find many old greek or roman artifacts.
So old greece and old rome where NOT very important!

The Middle Ages where FAR MORE IMPORTANT!
