Troy - summary of the plot of the film.

Extracts from this document...


Troy The Trojan War all started when Prince Hector (Prince of Troy) and his younger brother were in Sparta negotiating peace between Troy and Sparta. Paris had fell in love with Helena, who was Menelaus wife, and smuggled her onto the ship back to Troy. Menelaus wanted revenge! Agamemnon, Menelaus brother, had always wanted to take over Troy and he used that as a reason to attack Troy. Odysseus visited Phtia to ask Achilles to fight for Sparta, and found him fighting with Patroclus, his cousin. Achilles agreed to come with. Few days later they arrived at the beach of Troy on ships. Achilles took the Myrmidons to go attack. They killed many of Trojans and desecrated the temple of Apollo. Briseis, who was from Troy, was taken by the Greeks (which Achilles didn't want) because Achilles wouldn't fight for the Greeks. The next day Achilles didn't fight because the Greeks had taken Briseis and wanted to rescue her, which he did. ...read more.


Patroclus had wore Achilles war gear and gone to battle. The real Achilles who had slept through the whole battle, was told by Eudorus that Hector had killed Patroclus. Achilles furiously wanted revenge. Next morning he rode a horse to the wall of Troy all by himself to get his revenge on Hector. He arrived and screamed "HECTOR!" There was a long echo and Hector who was sitting on top of the wall heard it, understood that Achilles wanted revenge for what he did to Patroclus and got ready for battle. "HECTOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOR!" Achilles screamed again. After two more screams the doors of the great wall opened, and out came Hector. They had a duel and after a intensive battle, Achilles killed Hector. That night King Priam came down to the beach of Troy to ask for his son's body. Achilles agreed and gave him Hector's body and twelve days for Hector's funeral, until they attack Troy. ...read more.


Protect them Aeneas, find them a new home." Achilles screamed and searched desperately for Briseis, who was being threatened by Agamemnon. She killed him with a knife, and his guards grabbed her, beating her. Achilles came, killed the guards and helped her up. Right then Achilles was shot by an arrow in his heel by Paris. Achilles rose to his feet and walked towards Paris who shot him a few times in the chest. The arrows shot in the chest were pulled out by Achilles. Achilles fell to his knees and slowly fell to the side and died. The next day the Greeks had a funeral for Achilles in the ruins of Troy. At last Odysseus said "If they ever tell my story, let them say I walked with giants. Men rise and fall like the winter wheat, but these names will never die. Let them say I lived in the time of Hector, tamer of horses. Let them say I lived in the time of Achilles." The end. ...read more.
