300

300 It is a 2004 film directed by Zack Snyder and starring Gerard Butler, Lena Headey, and Rodrigo Santoro and adapted from the graphic novel by Frank Miller. It relives the story of the Battle of Thermopylae that opposed the Spartan king Leonidas and his 300 warriors against the Persian king Xerxes and his legions. This battle was one of the most important feats of weapons in ancient history, which led to the union of Greece. The movie is cult and full of impressive and gory scenes. Although inspired by a true story, it takes enormous liberties with history and adds imagination to it to make the story more epic than ever.

brave heart

Written by and with Mel Gibson, as well as Sophie Marceau, brave heart It traces the history of Scottish independence at the end of the thirteenth century against King Edward of England. The fight scenes are realistic and dynamic and don’t skimp on hemoglobin. The film won five Oscars, among them Best Picture and Best Director. Inspired by an epic poem by Harry the Blind entitled “The Works and Deidis of the Illustrious and Vallyeant Campioun Schir William Wallace,” Braveheart deliberately takes many liberties with historical facts. The fiction here goes beyond the “truth” of the relevant facts.


the gladiator

Released in 2000, the gladiator Directed by Ridley Scott, with Russell Crowe, Joaquin Phoenix, and Connie Nielsen in the lead roles. General Maximus is loyal to Emperor Marcus Aurelius, but the emperor’s son, Commodus, is jealous of his father’s interest in this soldier. He arranges to restore power and orders the execution of Maximus. He managed to escape, but was caught by a slave trader. Then he becomes a gladiator and seizes the opportunity to prepare his revenge. The movie is not a historical adaptation, but it does use great history and brilliant characters to build its own. The film won five Oscars, including Best Picture and Best Actor for Russell Crowe.

The last samurai

The last samurai It is a 2004 film directed by Edward Zwick and starring Tom Cruise, Billy Connolly, and Tony Goldwyn. In 1876, Captain Nathan Allgren became military advisor to the Emperor of Japan thanks to the reputation he had gained during the Indian Wars against the Sioux. He finds himself caught between two completely different cultures. The film is sometimes described as too tacky, and will appeal to Hollywood movie fans. It depicts many historical events including the last great revolution of the samurai regime which eventually vanished at the end of the conflict. The character played by Tom Cruise is a fictional character.

Yang Man Chun and his handful of men, in this context, strive to defend Anse Castle from the attacks of thousands of Japanese soldiers. A historical film focusing on great battle scenes and military heroism. It has everything from a Korean movie.

return

return Released in 2016, it is a film directed by Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu with Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Hardy and Domhnall Gleeson, and adapted from the novel The Revenant (2002) by Michael Punke. Hugh Glass is a hunter who finds himself abandoned in the middle of the wilderness after being attacked and injured by a bear. He will then try to get out of this situation and take revenge on his colleagues by traveling more than 300 kilometers alone. The film is based in part on the true story of Hugh Glass. The Revenant won Academy Awards for Best Director, Best Actor, and Best Cinematography.


Troy

Troy Directed by Wolfgang Petersen, starring Brad Pitt, Eric Bana and Orlando Bloom, it was released in 2004 and is an adaptation of the film Troy City. Helen is kidnapped by Paris, the prince of the offending city. King Menelaus and Agamemnon, King of Mycenae, unite to retrieve it with the help of a hero named Achilles. To do this, they surrounded Troy and considered its fortifications impregnable. The film was freely adapted from Homer’s Iliad, an epic poem of 24 songs. It certainly makes many historical and narrative deviations. Troy 2004 is a simplified but effective version of the myth.
