Gladiator is about a Roman general Maximus Decimus Meridius (Russell Crowe) who is betrayed by his friend Quintus (Tomas Arana) and his family murdered by corrupt prince Commodus (Joaquin Phoenix). He comes to Rome as a gladiator to seek revenge.
Gladiator is a movie from Dreamworks directed by Ridley Scott and was released on 2000. It is not just a film, it is an all in one film (well, almost). It is historical, drama, epic, adventure, action film in one and no doubt that can be lined with those classic films. It would have made for an extremely marvelous picture if not for the too much brutality and blood shed. I love the story though and I love Russell Crowse’s performance as Maximus. And because I am an action fanatic, I will rate this 7/8.
