Hector: All my life I've lived by a code; and the code is simple: Honor the gods, love your woman, and defend your country. Troy is mother to us all. Fight for her!
After Agamemnon's death, Achilles kills the two soldiers to rescue Briseis and in the close-up as he starts to lift her, the soldier's helmet lies near his head by the steps and the sword's grip at his fingertips. In the following shots the body, sword and helmet all change positions, the helmet moves at least a foot and the sword moves a few feet. See more...
Due to the political situation in Iraq, the location for scale shots was moved from Morocco to Mexico, an ideal alternate choice with its broad beach, however, the rushed decision presented some obstacles. Coastal Mexico is an endangered turtle habitat, so to be granted permission to set up the Greek encampment and build boats on the large stretch of beach the film crew implemented their own turtle incubation nursery, thus releasing a multitude of turtles while on location in Mexico! They also did not have an accurate idea of the physical conditions of that particular beach. As it turned out that beach was very erratic and one morning about 100 feet of beach had washed away overnight, leaving Greek ships teetering precariously on the edge of the bank with the missing sand.

When Hector tries to stop Helen from running away at night, her hair keeps changing; one can see in her "back" shots, sometimes her hair is completely down, and other times her hair has two twists in it. It keeps changing throughout the scene. Also, in the same scene, the front of her hair is sometimes a little frizzy and curly, and sometimes it is smooth and straight.
