"Gladiator" (2000)

“FIRST IMPRESSIONS

When Roman general Maximus is betrayed and his family murdered by the emperor's corrupt son Commodus, he gets his chance for revenge when he comes to Rome as a gladiator.

I don't like to use the word "overrated", but I certainly couldn't get into Gladiator as much as everyone else seems to. Why? Well, several reasons.

Some of them did perk my interest, like the Senate's plan to get rid of Commodus, but nothi” read more

Filmsite Greatest Tearjerkers Scenes/Movie Moments (318 movies items)

"The death scene of the moving last moments of condemned, enslaved Colosseum gladiator "The Spaniard" (Russell Crowe), who had earlier revealed himself as vengeful General Maximus Meridius. In the arena during one-on-one combat with treacherous Emperor Commodus (Joaquin Phoenix), he had already been stabbed with a stiletto (causing punctured lungs) and was slowly dying. Weary from his own wounds, Maximum saw visions of himself entering into his home's wooden gates in the afterlife. Before dying,"

"The first time Maximus (Russell Crowe) and his fellow gladiators enter the Coliseum, ready to fight, the massive size of the crowd overwhelms them. As the stadium circles around and encloses the band of men, we realize just how many people have come to cheer for their death. The crowd chants, “Caesar!“ as the gladiators are introduced as the barbarian horde. This scene is crucial in understanding both the popularity of brutality in the Roman Empire and the place where the Gladiators must con"
