Troy on the beach

We knew that a Hollywoodian version of Iliade assured disappointment.
But reducing a history of years to a week end on the beach is too much.
Where is the gods? influence that decides and determines everything? And what about Cassandra, the most cinematographic character of the myth? And those faces, coming from Braveheart, the Lord of Rings and Mc Donald, what have they to do with the ancient Greeks and their enemies?

Please, don’t go.
