The Movie:

Troy: Homer's sprawling tale of love and war in ancient Greece comes to the screen in all its grandeur in this epic-scale adventure. In 1193 B.C., Paris, Prince of Troy (Orlando Bloom), has fallen in love; however, the beautiful woman who has beguiled him is Helen, Queen of Sparta (Diane Kruger), who is wed to King Menelaus (Brendan Gleeson). While Helen is hardly immune to Paris' charms, this doesn't blunt Menelaus' fury when Paris steals her away from him. Menelaus' brother Agamemnon (Brian Cox), the power-hungry king of the Mycenaeans, is eager to expand his empire through Troy to the lands of the Aegean Sea, and he uses Paris' romantic slight against Menelaus as an excuse to wage an all-out war against the great walled city.
Priam, King of Troy (Peter O'Toole), summons his armies, led by Prince Hector (Eric Bana), to meet the onslaught of Agamemnon's forces, but while the great city has yet to yield in a battle, Agamemnon has a formidable ally -- Achilles (Brad Pitt), a mighty and seemingly unstoppable warrior whose presence could tip the scales in Agamemnon's favor. Sean Bean, Julie Christie, Saffron Burrows, and Rose Byrne highlight the film's supporting cast.

Achilles Statue 1

He was the greatest of ancient Greece's warriors. The son of Peleus, Achilles was believed to be invulnerable, his skin hardened by a magical potion in which was bathed as a youth. His body was a finely honed weapon, his reflexes were quick, his aim was sharp and true. Before the gates of Troy, he fought for the honor of all Greece. This legend from the mists of humanity's past is sculpted as a 17" tall statue by Arahom Radjah and Troy McDevitt. Wearing authentic Greek clothing and armor and armed with a spear and sword, this Greek warrior can inspire you to your own feats of legendary renown.

Achilles Statue 2

Achilles, the mightiest of all warriors, would give his life for immortality, to be remembered. Refusing to be just another average soldier, he pushed himself to his physical limits and beyond. His stance is confident and daring, his helmet and shield enhance his slight armor and agile frame. Shoulders back, sword in hand, he stands ready for a battle he has already won in his mind. Born to win, born to victory, Achilles stands undefeatable, and this 1/8-scale statue brings one of Greece's defining legends into vivid life. Painted and ready to display.
