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.

(at around 17 mins) The caption "Mycenae" appears with a sea inlet in the background. Mycenae is inland and the sea cannot be seen from any vantage point near the city (ruins). 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?

To confess having fantasies about Brad Pitt is a pretty tough admission
for an heterosexual to make. But what can I tell you? Maybe is that
famous extra something that everybody talks about and makes a star a
star. It crosses that barrier. It pulls you into unknown sensual and
emotional territory. Brando had it in spades, Montgomery Clift, Gary
Cooper, James Dean of course and in more recent times, Tom Cruise, Jude
Law, Johnny Depp, Ewan McGregor and Billy Crudup. Women fell in love
with Garbo, Dietrich, Katharine and Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly,
Marilyn Monroe, Julie Christie, Charlotte Rampling, Meryl Streep,
Vanessa Redgrave, Julia Roberts and very very recently Natalie Portman.
But Brad Pitt has, singlehandedly, redefined the concept. He is the
only reason to go out, get in the car, find parking, buy a ticket,
popcorn and get into a theatre to see "Troy" If you liked epics in the
"Jupiter's Darling" style you may enjoy this. But if you don't, go all
the same, we want to keep Brad Pitt in business.
