Eric Bana's Hector is my favorite character in the movie, with a slight edge over Sean Bean as Odysseus. In contrast to Brad Pitt who played Achilles as a laughable egomaniac, and Orlando Bloom who played Paris as a selfish weakling, Hector is honorable, and it's not in the least bit corny or sentimental.
