First I want to say this review has NO SPOILERS, well maybe wee small ones......
180 A.D. Maximus the main charachter is a Soldier in the Roaman empire.
Wroned by circumstance and having something very precious taken from him he finds himself a slave in the areana as a Gladiator. Forced to fight for his life.
You will notice right off, his character is a very intelegent and loyal man. He commands with respect and yet only fights because he must, only seeking peace.
The charachter development is very well done. Even characters with small parts have a great deal of development. As if Every one is an important factor.
The film is long, but you are never bored. There are some "vision" segments, they seem not to fit in, but they are a very important part of this fantastic movie.
Full of Blood and violence for the action fan, it is not nearly as graphic as saving private Ryan, so the weak of stomach do not need to fear scauceing their pop corn. Betrayal, intrigue and even a hint at incest make this movie entertainine for anyone.
Thei is really no romanic intrest, which is something rare though it does hint at one that may occur later, after the movie ends, untill the end you are not certain.
You may recognise some characters from TV such as Conan the barbarian.
You will cheer the hero on, and teter on the edge of your seat, but you will also fall back in indignation. This film does not play on your heart strings. It allows you to feel naturally, thus giving you a far better expieriance.
If you are to see a movie this week end. Make it Gladiator. You will not be disapointed.
Out of my rateing:
sound track: excelent 5:5
theme : excelent 5:5
entertainment: great 4:5 (some people may not like the gore, or vision portions)
Value for your money: 4.5:5
I have seen it 2 times and was entertained both times.
But don't take my word for it. Go see it for your self.
