If a man steals another’s wife these days, he could get named in a divorce case or even appear on The Jeremy Kyle Show.
Back in Ancient Greece he’d cause a major war! Jonas Armstrong’s King Menelaus is raging over young upstart Paris stealing his beloved wife, Helen, and starts massing armies to march on Troy, where Helen is living in sin.
He calls upon three fearsome Greek warriors – his brother Agamemnon, Achilles and a very troubled Odysseus – to help him in his quest and, with mystical assistance from the gods, they soon end up on the shores of Troy where the first battle of an epic war begins.
Be warned: brutal but spectacular fight scenes await.
