Troy Gets So-So Marks in Early Review

The London Daily Telegraph has let the cat -- well, horse -- out of the bag with an early review of "Troy" (free registration required). The film gets sorta-positive marks from reviewer John Hiscock, but he's clearly not blown away by star Brad Pitt. "Unfortunately Brad Pitt does not quite fit the bill," Hiscock writes. "Although he looks the part [of uber-warrior Achilles], with a shoulder-length mane of blond hair and a winning way with enemy princesses, he cannot make the often portentous lines ring true."

The rest of the world will pass judgement when "Troy" premieres May 14.
