My name is Maximus Decimus Meridius, commander of the Armies of the North, General of the Felix Legions and loyal servant to the TRUE emperor, Marcus Aurelius. Father to a murdered son, husband to a murdered wife. And I will have my vengeance, in this life or the next.
This moment was the TITS! Shivers up my spine! Popcorn dribbling out my mouth and tears running down my mouth. What a great film.. ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED! ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED! Russell Crowes beat performance and I bet at the premier of this film! He Must of been so happy with his flawless performance. Thinking back on this film and how much I loved it! Captured the roman times beautiful. Easy 10 no question about it!

Father to a murdered son.. by piptastic

Set in ancient Rome, Russell Crow is stripped of his life and forced to fight as a gladiator. Some fantastic sets and costume make you forget about the fire extinguishers and watches you see throughout the movie (seriously, someone needed sacking for the errors in this movie). Although some of the acting is a little corny, the story has enough about it to captivate you. Good fun and a little bit moving at times.
