Hot men in ancient armor

By Chloe Stead

Whoever cast Brad Pitt as Achilles is a genius.

In the new movie Troy , Pitt's moody, misunderstood and unbelievably, unspeakably sexy as the Greek fighting machine. Who would have known that blood, sweat and dirt are aphrodisiacs?

The movie starts with two princes of Troy -- Paris (Orlando Bloom) and Hector (Eric Bana) -- and Menelaus (Brendan Gleeson), king of Sparta , celebrating the newly established peace between their countries.

But trouble starts when Paris takes a souvenir home with him: Menelaus' wife, Helen (Diane Kruger).

Menelaus then asks his brother, Agamemnon (Brian Cox), for help in retrieving the famed Helen of Troy.

Soon a thousand ships full of warriors are heading for the walls of distant Troy , among them the mighty killing machine Achilles.

It appears that he, Agamemnon and Menelaus have very different motives for war, but with the best solider in Greece , how can Sparta lose?
Troy is a fast-paced action movie about pride, courage, honor, greed and love.

Just as the pace begins to slow and you catch your breath, something happens that takes it away again.
Well, what are you waiting for? Go and see this film.

The only question is: whose side are you on?
