About the movie
The movie recounts the legend of the Trojan War, as the fortress city is attacked by a Greek army led by Agamemnon of Mycenae and Menelaus of Sparta. During a peace mission to Sparta, Younger Brother of Trojan prince Hector (Eric Bana), named Paris (Orlando Bloom), seduces the city- states Queen, Helen (Diane Kruger) which leads to the war between these two states. The seduction of Helen raises the curtain for the main story, which involves vast Greek armies laying siege to the impenetrable city. Their chief leader is Achilles (Brad Pitt), said to be the greatest warrior all the time. Achilles mopes on the flanks of the Greek army with his own independent band of fighters, carrying out a separate diplomatic policy, little bit similar to Ollie North. Patroclus (Garrett Hedlund), who looks like Achilles, wears his helmet and armor to fool the enemy. After killing him everyone is thinking that Achilles has been slain.
The next day, Achilles arrives at Troy's walls alone and calls hector for single Combat. Hector asks Achilles that the winner allow the loser all the proper funeral rituals but Achilles denies. Achilles becomes angry on Hector for killing Patroclus. In order to take the revenge, he started fighting with Hector. Both Achilles and Hector appear evenly matched, but Achilles eventually defeats Hector and drags his body to the Greek camp in a gesture of spite. That night Priam father of Hector visits Achilles and begs him to return Hector body. Achilles acknowledges to Priam that Hector was the best among he fights. At the end of the war, Paris shoots Achilles in the heel and he accepts his death as revenge for killing hector. Achilles dies and the soldiers arrive to see the fallen warrior with a single arrow through his feet. The film ends here.
