I just knew Troy would come up, sooner or later. That masterpiece from the Golden Age of Historical Accuracy.
Not accurate at all, actually. That said it did show fights involving spears could be made to look just as visually interesting, if not more, than more used sword fights. That said the real nice thing about Troy was the armor design. The costuming work for the armor, not accurate (at all), but very, very pretty. Personally while Troy was generally trash as a film (simply because it claimed to try to be historically accurate, which was . . . nonsense), when it comes to a high fantasy styled game . . . I'm not exactly looking for an accurate word for word historical document, I'm looking for a high fantasy game.
Troy with the same fighting styles, armor styles and the like, applied to a fully fantasy based film, with an appropriate story, without the crutch of having to be historically accurate . . . could have, potentially, been a better film. Also Brad Pitt wore a leather skirt surprisingly well.
