By my count it's more than 4 times... Just off the top of my head, I can recall it appearing in:

Star Trek 2
Project X
The Mask of Zorro
The Perfect Storm
Enemy at the Gates

I'm pretty sure there's more, but I can't think of them right now. Still, I really liked Horner's Troy score. The only thing that stops me from considering it a great score is how heavily it relies on the 4-note motif. As big a Horner fan as I am, I have to concur with the popular opinion here: "Mr Horner, please don't ever, EVER use this damn motif again."
