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.
On the Special Edition DVD, the making-of documentary, Strength and Honor: Creating the World of 'Gladiator' (2005), at nearly three and a half hours, is an hour longer than the film itself.
At my signal, unleash hell.
In the first gladiatorial battle, one gladiator uses a spiked ball and chain (flail). This type of weapon was first used 1300 years later, by medieval knights.
Both the Dreamworks & Universal logos are altered to appear gold in color so they match the opening theme of Maximus walking through a wheatfield.
