Other mistake: Near the end of the movie, we can see that the walls of Troy have suffered heavy damage from siege equipment, probably catapults. Yet in the entire film, we don't see any siege engines. The Greeks haven't brought any on their ships, we don't see them make any in their beach camp and they don't have any with them when they try to storm the city. There's simply no indication that the Greeks have ever had or used siege equipment.
Factual error: When they first assault the city, the Greeks construct catapults. Only problem: catapults were invented at 400 - 300 BC, i.e. about 800 years later; and the first models looked similar to giant crossbows. The one-armed onager and similar types (as seen here) were a later Roman invention.
