Troy mistake picture

Continuity mistake: While Ajax and Hector fight, Hector head butts Ajax, and three shots later in a wide shot, half of the hammer end of his unusual spear actually breaks and falls to the ground behind him to his left. But lo and behold, in the next close-up the bloody hammer end (bloodier than the previous shot) of his spear is whole and intact. (01:20:00)

Question: What's the use of those sharp poles the Trojans put on the beach before the Greeks land? They're too large to be of use against infantry, and the Greeks don't use cavalry, and wouldn't be likely to use cavalry to storm the beach even if they did.

Answer: They didn't know the Greeks weren't bringing cavalry. The Greeks did use them and sometimes brought them by sea. It was there to stop a cavalry charge and to break up fighting formations.
