A old draw... ok, well not so much, arround a month ago or more. when i was a kid i read the iliad by homer, my favorite scene was the combat btween Achilles Vs Hector, a epic battle with two of the greatest warriors of the history. dont wait! go and read the book, is awesome :D

the troy movie is ok too, but if you can, go for the book :D

Well, this fight was DESTINED to be one-sided for sure.

Hector, skilled as he was, was only human and mortal while Achilles was a demigod with the powers of River Styx that juiced up almost his whole body to be invulnerable(save his heels, of course). It may not have shown that much in the movie but they were not on even grounds. Achilles was basically a warrior on trainers & cheat codes mark-ups in addition to his core skills. When you go one-on-one against an opponent who's under the effect of invulnerability or infinite health you know you're gonna lose.

If you want to be pernickety about it, in the original myth Achilles wasn't invulnerable, he was just such an absurdly good warrior it appeared so, and then that got misinterpreted later.

Would it be alright for me to use this in an english class video I'm making? I'd give you credit and link you to the video once I finish.

Very nice! Love It's really something to think a war can be won with a duel or that a king will grovel for his son corpse.

Aquiles, el soldado perfecto... Enfrentándose al gran heroe de Troya, Hector Priamida. Una pelea que, de hecho, no fue de dos ... faqin olimpicos

 Great pic, and I've gotta agree with you, the book is way much better than the movie.  It's nice to meet a fan.

He was killed by Paris with Apollo's aid, but that wasn't in the Iliad
