Great epic movie! Wonderful story line in support of the love of family!

Great epic movie.

It's about love of family over ambition, power and wealth.

Great to show that the family is more important than these values!

Jealousy and envy were also themes that definitely led to the serious corruption of the emperor's son and why being a
"just man" was not part of his persona. No surprise that the emperor, his father, did not leave him the throne.

An unjust man with power, jealousy and envy is dangerous and deadly to his family and to all of the people under his rule as we saw what happened in the movie.

Great gladiator scenes and a very good story line.

One of my best all time movies!

Father of a murdered son

I love history, and to me, Gladiator is a masterpiece. It is the most accurate picture of the Roman Empire Hollywood has ever put out. People declare Spartacus a masterpiece, but Gladiator far outdoes Spartacus in quality. The costuming, the acting, the screenplay, the scenery, and the fighting styles made me think that I had traveled back to 180 A.D. Russell Crowe is a true Hollywood tough guy, and he is superb in this movie. Joaquin Phoenix is outstanding as a villain, one of the best in movie history. He played his character as if it were a psychologist's dream case. Connie Nielsen plays one of the strongest female characters that I have ever seen. The choreographer of the action sequences was brilliant. Ridley Scott did an outstanding job in recreating the Empire, including the multitude of ethnic groups within the Empire and accurately depicting everyday life. If you're looking for insight into what the Roman Empire was like, this is a perfect depiction.Read full review...

GLADIATOR (DVD, 2000)

Maximus (Crowe) is the General of the Army of the North in Germania. His army is victorious and he is praised by Marcus Aurelius himself. Maximus is brave, loyal and resourceful, and Caesar loves him like a son. Maximus is everything that Marcus Aurelius admires, and does not see in his son Commodus. He cannot allow Commodus to become Ceasar because he cannot be trusted. Marcus Aurelius wants Maximus to succeed him and lead Rome back to a Republic. Maximus only wants to return to his family in Spain; he is not political, but reluctantly agrees out of love and loyalty to Marcus Aurelius. When Marcus Aurelius tells Commodus of his desire, Commodus suffocates him and kills him. Commodus orders Maximus taken away and killed, and for his family to be killed also. Maximus is able to outsmart his executioners, and kills them but is wounded. He travels hard to get to his family, but arrives too late, and finds them dead. He swears a blood oath to kill Commodus. Found half dead, he is taken slave by a slave trader and entertainer, Proximo. He stages Gladiator games and now finds himself owner of "The Spaniard", Maximus. After distinguishing himself as a gladiator, the Spaniard finds himself fighting in Rome in the Collisseum. Emperor Commodus has declared the return of the Gladiatorial games. Maximus fights in mask, and when Commodus comes to congratulate his success he is horrified to find out that Maximus is still alive, and that he intends to kill him. Commodus is perplexed, because Maximus has won over the crowd, and if Commodus kills him, he will look like the coward he is. Maximus taunts Commodus and finally kills him in a direct fight on the floor of the Colisseum. In the process, Maximus was also killed. Good movie, with much historical accuracy.Read full review...

Christopher Lee Rhyne Review 51

The Gladiator is an excellent film, the roman empire, brutal savagery, mutilated corpses and armies waiting to honor its general. Rome is glory, come hither brothers, sons and fathers. In this world are Gods, in your life you will knee to Rome & in your soul and spirit you will give your blood.

A power struggle of good men will find out they are amoung evil hearts. Murder comes like cheap wine and the war heaps souls into cruel piles. General Maximus Decimus Meridias defender to Emperor Marcus Aurelius but when Commodus has slavery and fight in a ring of human Rome is overtaken by Commodus. Hopefully Maximus will restore power back to Rome. Rome will be Republican.

CAST Russell Crowe / Maximus ----- Joaquin Phoenix / Commodus ----- Connie Nielsen / Lucilla ----- Oliver Reed / Proximo ----- Richard Harris / Marcus Aurelius ----- Derek Jacobi / Gracchus ----- Djimon Hounsou / Juba David Schofield ----- Falco John Shrapnel / Gaius ----- Tomas Arana / Quintus ----- Ralf Moeller / Hagen ----- Spencer Treat Clark / Lucius

155 min / Region 1 / English / Color.

Proximo & Maximus had quotes which I thought was part of the films genuine plot: To profit from death your a "Gladiator". A Spaniard has the "Gods of the Sun". Rated R, children with adult supervision 5*****

Best. Movie. Ever.

Gladiator is my number one favorite film ever since the moment I finished watching it back in 1999. It came out right around the time that The Patriot released, and that was a rough contender. Regardless, Gladiator still received it's deserving praise. The main idea of the story is focused behind the main character Maximus Decimus Meridius (played by Russel Crowe). Without giving too much away, I'll say Maximus is a Legion soldier of Rome. When a selfish new emperor is crowned, he condemns Maximus in some of the worst ways imagineable. Revenge is a driving force in this movie, so much so that the audiences will be thirsting for it more than Maximus perhaps! The acting in this movie is superior and the reconstruction of the Colliseum is unmatched to this day. I'll admit Gladiator is a bit more for the males, but anyone can jump into the love portion of the movie!Read full review...
