Philadelphia Inquirer - Desmond Ryan
It's a stunning Roman triumph.

Entertainment Weekly - Lisa Schwarzbaum
What matters for today's hero is the good fight, and Gladiator KOs us with a doozy.
88
New York Post - Jonathan Foreman
An exhilarating, sweeping epic that begs to be seen on the largest possible screen.
75
Miami Herald - Rene Rodriguez
Lacks emotional depth and sweep -- but the movie still delivers the type of rousing, large-scale adventure that marked the best films of its kind

Film.com - Robert Horton
The heroism and the tigers and the epic grandeur all leave behind the flavor of cynicism.

Gladiator (2000)



In the year 180, the death of emperor Marcus Aurelius throws the Roman Empire into chaos. Maximus is one of the Roman army's most capable and trusted generals and a key advisor to the emperor. As Marcus' devious son Commodus ascends to the throne, Maximus is set to be executed. He escapes, but is captured by slave traders. Renamed Spaniard and forced to become a gladiator, Maximus must battle to the death with other men for the amusement of paying audiences.
