Gladiator

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0172495/

195-1

I omitted a trailer because it honestly sucks and ruins a good scene. The movie focuses on Maximus, a commander of the Northern Roman Army, who the emperor wishes to lead Rome. When the emperor’s son hears of this outrage it prompts retaliation and he unleashes hell by ordering the execution of Maximus, his son, and his wife.

This is the story of the arena and one man’s fall from glory and rise to Rome. A movie of retribution via indirect influence of the people that define Rome.

8/10
