Troy

Comparison:

  • Theatrical Version
  • Director's Cut (2/2)
Release: Oct 22, 2010 - Author: KoRn - Translator: Tony Montana - external link: IMDB
Paris (Orlando Bloom), the deeply in love prince of Troja, deports the Spartan Queen Helena (Diane Kruger) to his homeland. The Spartan King Menelaos (Brian Gleeson) can't accept this insult. Under the direction of his brother Agamemnon (Brian Cox), the mighty king of Mycenea, other kings team up to destroy Troy, among them the famous warrior Achilles (Brad Pitt). Agamemnon's main motive is not to rehabilitate his brother but his greed: the fall of Troy would be a huge victory for him and ensure the supremacy of an already big empire. Under the direction of the violent prince Hector (Eric Bana), the walls of Troy can sustain much better than the Greeks expected....


With a worldwide box-office result of almost $500 million, the movie can be considered a huge success, even though the critics weren't that good.
Wolfgang Petersen paid almost $3 million for the new Director's Cut and worked on it with approx. 40 associates for three months because he didn't agree with the Theatrical Version. Due to the producers' pressure and a very tight schedule, the movie was completed pretty fast. There wasn't much time for the score either, that's why a lot of music has been edited or changed for the Director's Cut.
It recently became in vogue to release a Director's Cut, an Extended Version, an Unrated Version or whatever on DVD. Often it's just a rip-off and the name arouses wrong expectations, but not here. The new Director's Cut of Troy completes many parts of the story line. The characters are much more interesting and many subplots are more suspense-packed, even though the Director's Cut is longer. This is finally a Director's Cut that lives up to his name, definitely a recommendation for anyone who likes epic slaughter movies.


To keep track, only the really important differences have screens. Unimportant stuff like different shots of the actors or earlier-beginning/extended scenes, that are also in the Theatrical Version, are mentioned of course, but without screens. Nevertheless this comparison became so big that it had to be split up in two parts. Be that as it may, the comparison is pretty clear and I hope the faithful readers of movie-censorship.com enjoy reading. Have fun.

Theatrical Version: 02:36.06 min credits included

Naming all differences would be impossible. According to the running times = 1853 sec (30 min 53 sec)
