Hector (Eric Bana) is preparing for a battle in TROY

Bana's career took a nose dive after leading roles in a couple of high profile films such as MUNICH, HULK and this film. He's now a supporting actor or appearing in B-movies. A pretty steep dive for someone who was given the keys to Hollywood. Is TROY to blame? I didn't care much for it but it wasn't that bad, just extremely tedious and uninspired. He should have made more Sword & Sandal films.

Bana's Hollywood story is nothing unique in any way. I think he's a very good actor, though sometimes miscast, especially in the dire Hulk. To rise in Hollywood and then plunge into routine low brow acting jobs is par for course nowadays, it seems. In Bana's case I think he was given good roles in films that didn't turn out as successful as the production companies had projected. Such circumstances are usually the kiss of death for any actor.
