Corrected entry: Paris is a reasonably accurate archer from what we're shown, yet his first shot at Achilles (from close range, with plenty of time to steady himself and Achilles not moving) hits him in the heel. This made sense in the original, when Paris fired from the walls and was basically lucky to hit Achilles' one weak spot, but in the movie the events have been relocated to a quiet temple and the arrow in the heel makes no sense at all.Shay
Corrected entry: Troy was a natural harbor, but the shots of the sea show waves breaking against the sand, which would indicate a beach. It would be impossible for the Greeks to have sailed their ships onto the beach, they would have been overturned by the changes in tide.
Corrected entry: When Brendan Gleeson figures out that his wife is gone, he travels to his brother's palace, taking about a day. His brother then sends notification to all the kings in Greece, a very large empire, to prepare for battle. This would take from a day to two weeks to deliver. Each of these states must then prepare all their arms and men. So how is it that the large, heavy fleet arrive at Troy only a day after Paris and Hector's small fleet?
Corrected entry: In the shot of the Greek camp at dawn, the sun is seen rising over the ocean behind the ships on the beach. As the beach and ocean are to the west of Troy, this would have the sun rising in the west.
Corrected entry: This movie is spoken in English however, when the Greeks invade the beach at Troy and the camera pans over the ships you can hear another language spoken that sounds like Ancient Greek. This seems illogical considering none of the primary and even secondary actors even attempted a Greek accent and this movie was not one that proclaimed the need for subtitles.Tobin OReilly
Corrected entry: Eric Bana's hair is seen as a dark auburn brownish color all through the movie, however, it's easy to see that he is naturally short haired and that they had to weave in extensions to make his hair longer. In certain scenes, these weaves are blatantly obvious because the color of the weaves are more of a flat dark brown color, and don't match his natural hair color. This is most obvious in the scene near the end where Hector turns to kiss his father goodbye before going down to fight Achilles. There, the audience can see that his natural hair color ends somewhere a little above the neck, and from there the dark flat brown weaves take over.Stormsigma
Corrected entry: There are no trees around, but they seem to have plenty of wood to burn the dead bodies with.
Corrected entry: Just before Achilles (Brad Pitt) is killed, he kills two guards who were about to kill the girl who stabbed the king. When he is being shot by Paris (O. Bloom), he walks a few steps forward and then dies. In the next shot, the camera zooms out from his body, and all you can see is his body in the middle of a patch of grass. What happened to the bodies of the two soldiers and the king?
Corrected entry: In the film, the Greeks placed coins on the eyes of their dead. In reality, the Greeks placed the coins under the tongue of the dead.
