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.

Achilles talks to the men right before Achilles and the Myrmidons take the Trojan beach. As the shots go between Achilles and the Myrmidons, the hundreds of ships that should be behind them suddenly disappear; only a bare ocean can be seen. 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?

Overwhelming and breathtaking epic film with all-star-cast
It's a great adventure movie that offers a wide range of expectations of the epic genre . Thhis historical movie deals about Troya war as adaptation from classic poem written by Homer . Helena (Diane Kruger) , wife of Menelao of Sparta (Brendan Gleeson) , escapes with Paris (Orlando Bloom underwent archery training for his role as Legolas in Lord of the rings (2001) and its two sequels). The Greek Army and ships go to Troya with Aquiles (Brad Pitt who trained for six months to get a body that looked like that of Greek statues) , the king of Micenas , Agamenón (Brian Cox) , and the Spartans . They fight against king of Troya (Peter O'Toole) and his sons : Héctor (Eric Bana) and Paris.
Wolfgang Petersen's film benefited from the effect "Gladiator" and offered the possibility of expanding commercial horizons towards a movie that achieved a big commercial success . The hand of the director carries out an interesting story as well as thrilling and unsweetened , reasoning the causes and motivations of their roles , taking their time and giving large doses of artistic genius . If you are accustomed to battles as Braveheart or Gladiator, you will enjoy with "Troy" , a great epic that shows the limits of the legend , which allowed Petersen to take some particular elements based on the "Illiad" of Homer . The battles are breathtaking , thousands of people take part though mostly are staged by means of computer generator . The tale is pretty violent , the struggles are very bloody and savage , in fact , Brad Pitt and Eric Bana did not use stunt doubles for their epic duel . The main cast is formed by big names who give acceptable acting . Support cast is frankly good such as Sean Bean , Garrett Hedlund , James Cosmo , Saffron Burrows , Trevor Eve , Nathan Jones , Nigel Terry , Vincent Regan , Tylor Mane and veteran Julie Christie . The movie is rated ¨R¨ for violence , profanity ,and brutal combats and for that reason isn't available for children , neither very adolescents . Direction film by Wolfgang Petersen is rightly made , cinematography by Roger Deakins is excellent and music by James Horner is spectacular , he composed the score in less than 6 weeks . Rating 7/10 above average
