Troy (2004)

Troy picture

Audio problem: After the Trojans start to fire arrows at the ship, the second Myrmidon who falls overboard into the water, screams loudly as he falls, though his mouth is clenched shut. It is the type of yell that cannot be made with a closed mouth.

Audio problem: When the Woads attack in the beginning of the movie, after the knights have pretty much won the day, Bors hold up his fist knives, sticks out his tounge, and yells a sort-of war victory yell which sounds rather comedic. At the end of the movie when the knights and their horses charge into the Saxons out of the fog, you can hear Bors' exact same yell once again.

Suggested correction: When the Woads attack in the beginning of the movie, after the knights have pretty much won the day, Bors hold up his fist knives, sticks out his tongue, and yells his war cry: "Rus!". At the end of the movie when the knights and their horses charge into the Saxons out of the fog, the audio of Bors' exact same yell is used once again. The Rus were one of the two main tribes that the Romans called 'Sarmatians'. They were Norsemen who had settled near what became known as the Rus River (in modern-day Romania), who later settled Russia, Belarus, and Ruthenia, all of which took their names from the Rus. The repeated cry of "Rus!" in the film is meant to show that the Sarmatian knights had retained their cultural identity throughout their years of forced service, making their final sacrifice in a foreign land a true act of courage and honor as opposed to an order from the Romans.

Audio problem: When the Mexicans begin their final attack, we see Travis call to Joe to wake him up, but if you watch closely, you don't see his lips move, you just hear "Joe."
