With Hector dead the king is cursed with emotion and accepts a false peace offering from the Trojans that trick Troy into burning at the hands of Greece.
The Bottom Line
The movie is an extremely well made movie, it is incredibly accurate in depicting the history of the Trojans and the Greeks. One of the best performances of Brad Pitts film career, the best fighting he has preformed to date. The way the director makes the hero’s stand out, almost as if they were giants among the common soldiers even though Ajax was.
