I didn't know the movie Troy came from this play. There were a few different things between the movie and the play though. For instance, Hector is killed in a duel with Achilles in the movie and not ambushed by a group like in the play. Another difference is that the play doesn't seem to have big events happen, but instead it seems something big might happen and nothing does. for example, when hector and ajax engage in a duel I thought someone was going to die but it ended up in a draw. This seemed to be an overall theme in the play, whereas the movie it seemed to be packed with big events.
