Movies like Troy are not made every day. Such movies are huge undertakings requiring massive budgets and months of preparation. And even after that, there is no guarantee that the film will be successful. Historical dramas like Troy require special attention to not just the plot but also the whole set up. Therefore, technical aspects that go behind making of a film like production and costume design should be spot on. Otherwise, audiences may not buy the story at all.
Over last few decades several historical movies like Troy have been made. But how many have been as good as Troy. Let’s find out. Here is the list of 10 movies like Troy that you must watch.
10. Alexander (2004)
There is no question about the fact that ‘Alexander’ is a flawed movie. But if you ignore the flaws, there is a lot to like in the film, starting with its epic and wonderfully choreographed battle scenes. Colin Farrell does a good job as Alexander the Great. Val Kilmer and Angelina Jolie do not look their part, but you hardly care. It is escapist entertainment at its best.
