Troy

The Greeks build a wooden horse and leave it on the beach of Troy, all while pretending to sail away. The Trojans take the Horse (thinking it to be an offering to the gods) into the city. However it was filled with Greecian warriors, which attack the city come night, burning the entire city down and leaving no Trojans alive. Helen escapes through a secret tunnel with Hector's wife, baby, and other Trojans. The king of Troy is killed by Agamemnon (a spear through the stomach)and Achilles was shot with arrows in 5 different places, by Paris who escapes with Briesis through the tunnel.

Mistakes

As Achilles' ship nears the Trojan shores, Agamemnon snidely asks, "What's the fool doing? He's going to take the beach of Troy with fifty men?" At the start of the next shot, as the camera begins to pan down, on the far right, just beside a person's (who is dressed in blue) head is a metal bullhorn (ie. used to give instructions to cast/crew, and which definitely doesn't belong in this time period).

Trivia

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.
