"There Are No Pacts Between Lions and Men"

I was up late some time last week and watched part of Troy on TNT or TBS or some basic cable TV station. For those of you who don't remember, Troy is the 2004 Hollywood schlock fest of a movie that puts a blockbuster spin on Homer's The Iliad. The movie is pretty campy but entertaining nonetheless. Of course since it was broadcast on TV most of the cool stuff was edited out, like this awesome fight scene between Achilles and Hector (the highlight of the damn movie!). I went and hunted for the scene on the web and now, here it is!

  1. I like the bit at the beginning with the big build-up to the fight with the big bloke, then he just stabs him in the neck.

  2. I live for the day when TV stations edit out the whole movie before they play it! Just opening credits and then end credits!

  3. Troy wasn't too bad for a movie with Brad Pitt in it.

  4. Why would they edit this out? I mean, the whole thing? If you get even a TINY bit creative you can make that something between PG and PG-13. It doesn't take much, come on.

  7. If I could watch Desperado 100 times and Troy 1000 times, credit goes to Antonio and Brad.
    Though I love Helen of Troy story right from my childhood.
    Bradd Pitt and movie Troy had taken it bigtime. The crew was perfect. Milksop Paris-Orlando Bloom, Mighty, Chivalrous Hector and Achilles - Eric Bana and Bradd Pitt :)
