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."

Hector Keate - Troy hater

Revealing mistake: When the spear handle is protruding from Hector's shoulder, the area of the armor around the circular wound is clearly visible and it is in perfect condition. There is no tear in the armor whatsoever, around the wood, which would have been necessary to allow the wide spear tip to penetrate the armor and actually enter Hector's body as it did. (02:01:20)

More quotes from Troy

Trivia: Near the end of the movie, Paris hands the Sword of Troy off to a young man called Aeneas saying something along the lines of "Troy will always have a future so long as this sword is held by a Trojan." This was a little nod to Virgil's Aeneid which describes the travels of Aeneas after the Trojan War and who was an antecedent of Romulus and Remus (the legendary founders of Rome).
