Helen of Troy

Show generally

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: Chinese men are shown in the Trojan marketplace wearing Manchu-style clothing, something they would not wear until the Chin Dynasty (late 17th century until the early 20th). Also, there are no records of the Chinese ever traveling to the West during the time period of the Trojan War (circa 1000 B.C.).
