Troy

Paris and Hector are brothers, both princes of Troy, (sons of Priam) Paris steals Helen, (the queen of Sparta) or Menelaus' (king of Sparta) wife. Menelaus gets his big brother Agamemnon to join forces with him and attack Troy. To win the war, Agamemnon knows he has to have the best (and in that time period it was Achilles (the greatest warrior that ever lived)). So he recruits Achilles to fight with the Greeks. When they attack Troy's beach (and win it) the soldiers find Briesis (cousin of Hector and Paris) hiding in the temple and bring her to Achilles to "amuse him." He starts off playfully provoking her but she and he eventually fall for each other, which creates trouble for the himself and the royal family in "The war that will be remembered for one thousand years."

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.
