GLADIATOR (2000)




Director: Ridley Scott 

Starring: Russell Crowe, Joaquin Phoenix and Connie Nielsen 

Plot Summary: When a Roman general is betrayed and his family murdered by an emperor's corrupt son, he comes to Rome as a gladiator to seek revenge. 

"Gladiator" is visually stunning and emotionally captivating. Russell Crowe gives a great performance as Maximus, a Roman general turned slave. The film can be slow at times, but the epic battles make up for that. On a side note, Hans Zimmer did a phenomenal job on the score.

Pranit: My problem with this movie is its LENGTH. There are so many scenes that could have been done away with. For me Joaquin Phoenix outshines Russell Crowe. Watch the movie for his performance.
