What did you take from this scene in "Troy"?

3 posts in this topic

I don't know what I'm expected to make of Achilles screaming "Is there no one else?" at the beginning of Troy. Anyone care to share some thoughts?

Link to scene (2:16)

Is he restless and bored at the top? If so, how does that integrate into this telling of the story?

What is this scene meant to either contrast against of foretell?

I cannot say exactly what the screen-writer was attempting to get across, but I am willing to say what I think. I think he is asking if there are any heroic men willing to fight him, willing to stand up for their cause. He has probably lost his respect for humanity and wants to find someone that can demonstrate great heroism and hence his statements to the two rulers who he does not seem to think are worthy of him.

I forgot to answer this part. Achilles does find a heroic man worthy of his respect/honor and unfortunately he kills him which falls in line the the tragic nature of Ancient Greek writings.
