As the Greeks fall, they decided to head back home. King Priam decides to have one last battle with the Greeks to leave Troy for good. It was a night battle so the Greeks didn't knew, raining them down with flaming arrows and lighting huge balls of dry branches and rolling them down at the beach. It was a battle that Achilles wasn't in, but his cousin Patroclus pretended to be him by wearing his armor, his sword, his helmet, and his moves. Hector finally had a battle with Achilles not knowing it wasn't him. Patroclus was fast but Hector was faster, causing him to cut Patroclus's neck and finishing him with a sword to the heart.

When the movie was released in Italy, the title was not translated because its Italian/Latin equivalent,"Troia", is Italian slang for "prostitute." See more »
When the soldiers go into formation on the Trojan Beach, a flaming arrow is stuck to Achilles' shield. In the shot from Achilles' point of view, the arrow is nowhere to be seen. As Achilles and his army move out of formation to attack, the arrow is directly in Achilles' line of sight. See more »
Men are haunted by the vastness of eternity. And so we ask ourselves: will our actions echo across the centuries? Will strangers hear our names long after we are gone, and wonder who we were, how bravely we fought, how fiercely we loved?

I know of two couples, I repeat, two,- who went their separate ways
after "Troy"- Not for political or historical differences but for Brad
Pitt differences. Let me explain. They all four had fantasies about
Pitt. The two girls felt entitled the two guys felt kind of shocked not
as shocked as their girlfriends but shocked all the same. Okay let's
rewind for a moment. We're talking about an actor in a movie here. The
two guys and two girls in question are smart people, college graduates,
with jobs, lives, responsibilities. What is this? I finally had to see
the film for myself. I had resisted the temptation because I've never
been a fan of this kind of movie but, finally, last night, I saw it. Or
I should say I saw "him". It everything made sense. Pitt is a sort of
demi-god, beautiful and imperfect enough to make him human. Don't ask
me a thing about the film, I couldn't tell you, Bloom and Bana and that
girl, I couldn't tell them apart. The erotic treat of Brad Pitt's legs
makes this historical cartoon worth seeing no matter how terrible it
is. I, for one intend to see it again tonight. I mean I intend to see
"him" again tonight and tonight I'm ready, yes, ready willing and able
to be Brad Pitted to death.
