    Just saw it yesterday, I liked it all up until the ending which I thought was a little weak. [​IMG]

    I have only seen the teasers and I dont reckon there were that many people on the planet at that time let alone enough for the naval scene....

    I visited Troy in 1996 (took time from my PhD work on following the journeys of Paul across Asia Minor and Greece) and was impressed with the excavations there. It is amazing.

    Have watched with interest the "behind the scenes" programs on Troy and Trojan War on History and Discovering and Learning channels. 'Twill be a while until it comes out on DVD so I can see it and how close the topography, etc, fits.

    BTW, think of Troy in Bible terms - parallel with Gideon and middle of the Judges period.
