Corrected entry: When the two guards are dragging the priestess onto Agamemnon's ship, a quick shot of her foot reveals she is wearing Reef brand flip-flops, not an item they would have had in Troy.
Corrected entry: When the Trojans invade the shores at daybreak to initiate the second battle, it is quite obvious that Brad Pitt was playing the role of Patroclus until his throat was cut. First, you can see Pitt's face in Achilles' helmet in the close-up shots when he is about to start fighting with Hector. Second, you can see the significant change in Patroclus' physique before and after Hector cut his throat.Now i know that in The Iliad He was disguised as Achilles but that wasn't shown in the movie nor anything (other than Achilles' mother) connected to god interference.Ivan-sama
Corrected entry: Achilles is placed on the funeral pyre wearing his armor, which traditionally would have gone to his heirs (either back home or amongst the army). In fact, in the Iliad Odysseus and Ajax later fight over Achilles' armor, each claiming it should go to him as the next most valiant warrior amongst the Greeks.
Corrected entry: When Helen is looking out at the ocean knowing that the Greeks will come, Paris suggests that they "ride east, and keep riding" To ride east you must follow the rising sun. But the sun is rising over the ocean. So either the sun is rising in the west or Paris' plan is to ride into the ocean.
Corrected entry: Mid-film we see Hector carving a lion from wood for his son, which would be strange as the Trojans never conquered beyond the Mediterranean. What most people don't know is that lions once lived around the Mediterranean but climate and population changes forced them down into Africa.
Corrected entry: In the middle of the film when Achilles has killed Hector, he falls to the ground, and if you look behind him when he's on the ground, the castle wall can be seen, therefore signifying that he fell at the wall, yet on all other shots he is quite some distance from the castle wall.
Corrected entry: In the scene just after the Greeks have taken the Trojan beach, there some members of Troy sitting before Priam and they are cheering that, "If they want a war, we'll give them a war." After that comment, someone says, "The best of Greece outnumber the best of Troy two to one," yet they still cheer in happiness. This doesn't make any sense as they are Trojans and it is a bad thing that they're outnumbered by the Greeks.
Corrected entry: After the first major battle and Achilles and the Myrmidons land on the beach, the small-group battle ends with Achilles killing every man within range of him. He speaks to Eudorus and you can a streak of blood across the front of his armor, along his upper chest. Around the edges of the mark, you can marks which probably indicate that the metal has been cut. How could blood be flowing from metal? That's impossible and it does not appear that he has been cut all the way through.
Corrected entry: When Odysseus leads the Greeks up the stairs and are trying to break through the gate that Paris and other Trojans are waiting for them on the other side, you see Paris draw an arrow and fix it to his bow. However, when the Greeks finally do break through the gate, he is seen in a self-shot drawing another arrow and quickly firing it again.
Corrected entry: Near the start when we see Achilles on his ship with his soldiers, the camera cuts to a soldier walking along the rowers, in this shot we don't see the main sail, yet when it cuts to him again coming up to Achilles the main sail is just behind him. We should have been able to see this in the previous shot from the soldiers feet.
