It is the year 1250 B.C. during the late Bronze age. Two emerging nations begin to clash after Paris, the Trojan prince, convinces Helen, Queen of Sparta, to leave her husband, Menelaus, and sail with him back to Troy. After Menelaus finds out that his wife was taken by the Trojans, he asks his brother Agamemnon to help him get her back. Agamemnon sees this as an opportunity for power. So they set off with 1,000 ships holding 50,000 Greeks to Troy. With the help of Achilles, the Greeks are able to fight the never before defeated Trojans. But they come to a stop by Hector, Prince of Troy. The whole movie shows their battle struggles and the foreshadowing of fate in this remake by Wolfgang Petersen of Homer's "The Iliad."
|nudity||A man is seen sleeping in a tent with two naked women. Sex is implied. (Breasts can be seen in the Director's Cut.) A man strips nude in front of a woman. We see his buttocks briefly, and she looks away. A nude man and a clothed women have sex. A lot of thrusting and moaning, and we see his buttocks throughout the scene. Helen strips nude in front of a man; we see her breasts, and we later see a full view of her bare butt. (In the Directors Cut, Helen's breasts can be seen completely). A few sexual comments. Helen wears a dress that reveals cleavage. A man tells another man to go home and make love to his wife.|
|violence||The director's cut starts with a dog looking around a battle field. Little blood if any. The dog stops at the body of a dead man. There's a hole in the dead mans stomach. Crows are seen eating it. In the very first scene of the original cut, a man stabs a warrior through the shoulder. Blood can be seen, but it doesn't spurt out. Later in the film, when the Greeks land on the beach, the Trojans use fire arrows to stop the Greek advance. One man briefly gets shot in the head, one in the thigh and others in chest areas. A man gets sliced through the head (bloody but brief). The other killings are bloodless. A warrior throws a spear through a mans head, but this is briefly seen. More violence as they fight up the beach, but then as a warrior gets near to the temple, he uses his sword and as he swipes through many men. The last man he kills can be seen for about 3 seconds with a sword through his face, covered with blood. A big warrior, pulls an arrow out of his leg, where a lot of blood can be seen. In the large battle of the walls of Troy, two men fight, and one man has blood coming out of his mouth and his leg. When one man kills a main character, the sword goes right through, and you can see some blood dripping down. In the battle, men can be seen hacking away and lots of blood and corpses can be seen. When a man kills a warrior, he has blood coming from his mouth and he has a spear through him. When a man kills a main supporting character, he has blood all over his neck. He struggles to breath (making some gurgling sounds) as he dies. (The neck wound is more gory in the Director's cut, and bleeds profusely) A man tells another man that he will deny him proper burial rights and will mutilate his body after he is dead. The man later drags his body behind a chariot. We later see his sandy, bloody, body and face. Many main characters die, and some of the scenes that include this are really emotional. A man is stabbed through the shoulder with a broken spear. Blood pours from the wound and he gasps. He is then finished off by having a sword stabbed through his chest (we see the bloodied blade). A main character is shot with multiple arrows while alive. He eventually falls over and dies. Very emotional. The end of the movie is the most dramatic and violent as should be expected. (Please note that there are a few extended violent acts in the Director's Cut and more blood effects to the previously mentioned violence. During the end battle, there is implied rape and many people die, including a baby which is thrown into a fire. We do not see the actual baby.)|
|profanity||some mild profanity. 1 use of damn 1 use of Bitch|
|alcohol||Drinking of wine|
|frightening||The battle scenes are epic and intense. The deaths of many main characters are all intense, some particularly emotional. Especially towards the end when the Greeks burn Troy. The director's cut has an additional half hour of footage that includes extended battle scenes. Suitable only for 14+ because of the brutal violence and nudity. The ending is very intense and hard for some viewers to watch.|
