The Prettiest Face In All the Land

Hesiod has a great two part review of Troy over at Counterspin. His gripes reflect my own: Helen was week, Menaleus was killed, they gloss over Achilles invulnerability and change his motivation for killing Hektor from guilt to revenge. Overall, I agree with Hesiod: it wasn't a bad movie, it just wasn't the epic it could have been with a little more fidelity to the story and imagination on the part of the filmmakers.
