Reaction Paper

-TROYThis movie is full of grievances and self-centeredness because they kill for power and
superiority. Also some characters fight and sacrifice for the sake of family and country. It affect
my life coz Ive learned so much in this movie like do what is good and be optimistic in all
things. So being return, I will apply it to my daily lives.
In all of the character, Hector caught my attention. Why? He is responsible, lovable, noble man.
He accepts his responsibilities, even if he didn't choose them for himself. He never made any
complain about his duty. Hector made the conscious decision to accept his fate and play the role
for which he was destined. When in the face of death, he does not shrink and play the coward
compared to his brother Paris.
During those times man is always having mistress but the mightiest prince Hector remains
faithful to his wife. He is a ONE WOMAN MAN. There is no record in the book of him
having any other wives, and his devotion to Andromache and their infant son, only proves this
Many lesser man would have found it easy to lash out at Helen each time, to blame her
repeatedly for the war . . . but not Hector.
My favorite line of him is All my life I've lived by a code; and the code is simple: Honor the
gods, love your woman, and defend your country. Troy is mother to us all. Fight for her!
Lets take a flashback. Paris will judge who is the fairest among the three goddesses. Hera said if
she were chosen fairest of all women, she would make him king of all men; Athena promised
him victory in war; and Aphrodite promised him Helen in marriage. Paris was bribed by
Aphrodite to select her as the most beautiful of three quarrelling goddesses. Because Paris is a
coward man, on the spot he chose Aphrodite w/ no second thought swayed by her promise to
bestow upon him Helen, the most beautiful woman, for wife.
The climax is in which Sparta fools its opponents and finds a way to get past the walls of Troy, is
arresting and primal in a way that the other fighting sequences miss the boat on. The majority of
"Troy" is simply plodding.
There are many causes of the Trojan War; one of the most significant and influential causes was
the beautiful Helen of Sparta. Helen wasnt just any Greek woman; she was the most beautiful
and desirable woman alive. When Helen ran away with Paris to Troy she abandoned her country
and her people. All of Greece was forced to go to Troy to bring her back to where she belonged.
Helen knew that all the kings of Greece made an oath to protect her no matter what happened
and she still ran away with Paris. She knew that the kings of Greece would bring all of their

armies together to fight Troy to bring her back. She also knew that if she ran away it would cause
a war between the Trojans and the Greeks. Even though Helen was Queen of Sparta she chose
her happiness over the safety of her people. It was very self-centered for her to choose love over
the peace of the entire country. Even though Helen informed that her surrender would end the
war, she still stayed with Paris in Troy. Agamemnon may have been one of the most powerful
influences that Trojan War began. One way or another Agamemnon was determined to overthrow
Troy; he was just looking for the right reason. Helen running away to Troy gave Agamemnon
that reason to travel to Troy and fight for what he wanted.
One of the more interesting things I got from this movie was how well it showed how ones own
actions can effect the lives of others, and how selfishness, arrogance, etc. can effect people as
well. Each character was faced with choices in life that could potentially alter the lives of many
others, and the audience gets to watch as the consequences of those actions play out, showing the
cost of their choices.
The moral lessons in this movie are; love others more than you love yourself and you should not
decide only with your heart, because it can cause war against humanity. You should also let your
mind decide and think for the betterment of your people. This movie proved that If its meant to
be, it will be.
