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.
The 2-disc special edition has an extras section. "Visions from Elysium" featuring 11 pages of 25-30 clips ranging from 30secs to 6mins long. Perhaps 300mins of material here, but nobody cared much about organizing it.
I want to help you.
Maximus: Yes, you can help me... Forget you ever knew me, and never come back here again.
In the "recreation battle" involving chariots vs standing men, there is a very quick shot showing men shooting with crossbows. While the Romans knew the crossbow (or manuballista), they rarely used it; this may have been one of those rare times. Similarly, the mace was rarely used at the time.
Both the Dreamworks & Universal logos are altered to appear gold in color so they match the opening theme of Maximus walking through a wheatfield.
