    Classic epic film. Maximus was so awesome, and the storyline was great, along with the music.
    What do you guys think of Gladiator?

    Huh?
    On a side note, I like 300, Troy and Gladiator, but 300... Overkill.

    It's a big building where they put Turkish criminals, but that's not important.

    I liked Gladiator, yes. Big ran of Ridley Scott in general.

    Awesome movie, althougth its a shame that the historical epic fad that it started mostly resulted in turds like Troy and King Arthur.

    China wins for free at this genre thesedays, nothing facilitates huge scale movies like cheap labour.

    LOL.

    Striker?

    Anyway, Gladiator is a pretty good film, but not fully meeting its potential. Apparently there was supposed to be more fights in the Arena (Maximus versus Rhino! FIGHT!') and Maximus was meant to meet up with his Legions at the end and invade and take Rome, but Ridley Scott ran out of money.

    Also the first trailer uses Conan the Barbarian soundtrack for music, and that totally blew my mind when I saw it.

    It would've been epic. I rewatched it and thought Juba was Tyrese.

    gladiator was decent, i liked it, but I never saw what people did in Russell Crowe. King Arthur was better IMO, Troy was freaking awesome except for Orlando Bloom, 300 was cool and I still have to see Alexander.

    Barbarian Horde was cool, but Now we are free... That is pure beauty.

    I don't understand why everyone likes that movie. Opening battle scene was nice. Rest of it looked like a Spartakus rip off.

    I think this movie is one of the greatest movies of all time, at least from those I saw. The soundtrack is awesome. "Now we are free" is a very nice song.

    Historical inaccuracy be damned, its a great film with a ton of detail, great dialogue, and amazing action sequences. I'm a big fan of it.

    I think Gladiator's a pretty cool film, eh has intelligent dialogue and stunning visuals, and doesn't afraid of giving historical accuracy the middle finger.

    What a day to give up amphetamines.

    Anyway I thought the openeing battle sequence was a large failing of Gladiator. I mean it starts off great, but then decends into 1 frame per second shutter give tikgnat a headache cam.

    No thank you. If I'm watching a battle sequence I want to actually be able to see the dismemberments and killing and death and stuff. Not 'arty' cameras.

    Death dammit.

    Wasn't the "Stabs Commodus" scene good enough?
