My husband and I saw Troy at a sneak preview last night and liked it. I even downgraded my score for Van Helsing becuase, though I had a really good time at VH, Troy is the better movie, after all. I couldn't give them the same grade.
Due to circumstances beyond our control, we missed the first 20 minutes and will (pay to) see it again this weekend.
Question about the beginning. Scott? It's not an important question because as I said, we'll see it again, but I'm just curious.
We came in when Paris was asking Helen to come with him. In the previews, there's a shot of Brad Pitt killing a man and yelling "IS THERE NO ONE ELSE??" Is that at the beginning, or was it cut out of the movie?
All I can say now is that 1) it made me want to read the book and 2) Sean Bean rules. They just HAVE to make the sequel!
Peter O'Toole might be looking at his first regular Oscar next February.
