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.
In the Battle of Carthage battle scene in the Colliseum, Dimon Hounsou "Juba" the black gladiator, hands a sword to Maximus who's on horseback. He called out to him "Maximus"! instead of "Spaniard"! It wasn't till the end of that scene when Maximus ... ...
It's a dream, a frightful dream... life is...
In the opening battle, when the two armies run together, a Roman soldier in the center of the screen is clearly laughing at the battle, and not taking part. Some report several others laughing.
Both the Dreamworks & Universal logos are altered to appear gold in color so they match the opening theme of Maximus walking through a wheatfield.
