A general that becomes a slave. A slave that becomes a gladiator. A gladiator that defies a ceaser. An excellent adrenaline pumping movie. Dazzling. Spectacular.

A general loyal to his emperor is taken as a gladiator and his family is brutally murdered when the emperors power hungry son takes his fathers thrown.The general must fight for his life and more importantly for justice.
The review of this Movie prepared by SID

This film can be dismissed as a gorefest masquerading as a movie, but there actualy is a point to it all, and thats why it did so well at the Oscars, if you really want my opinion. General Maximus, a Roman hero, is sold into slavery after the emperor's son takes power. He ends up as a gladiator in the arena, and seeks revenge.
