The great Roman General Maximus (Russell Crowe) has once again led the legions to victory on the battlefield. The war won, Maximus dreams of home, wanting only to return to his wife and son; however, the dying Emperor Marcus Aurelius (Richard Harris) has one more duty for the general - to assume the mantle of his power.
Jealous of Maximus' favor with the emperor, the heir to the throne, Commodus (Joaquin Phoenix), orders his execution - and that of his family. Barely escaping death, Maximus is forced into slavery and trained as a gladiator in the arena where his fame grows.
Now he has come to Rome, intent on avenging the murder of his wife and son by killing the new emperor; Commodus.

This movie is a great history movie that has sense of truth to the story. There is a great storyline and it has to be a top movie by Russell Crowe. This is a top family movie and is also educational. Overall great movie worth buying for $11.50 a true classic. Recommended Buyers: Everybody that likes a good historical movie.

You would have to appreciate ancient history, fantasy, or films with some gory action and battles (or all 3) to get the most out of this film, but if you do, this film is amazing. The acting is excellent, the plot is deep for an action film, and the setting and production values are as good as it gets. If you have not seen this (or you have and don't own it) and have an inkling it might be good, you should definitely watch it. Plus it has quickly become a cult classic, so you can say you've seen it if nothing else.
