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.
A study by the Medical University of Vienna and the University of Bern examined gladiator bones, and found out that gladiators were mostly vegetarian. Yet in the film, they are shown eating meat.
The frost, it sometimes makes the blade stick.
During the fight with the tigers, Maximus falls and rolls over, revealing Lycra shorts.
Both the Dreamworks & Universal logos are altered to appear gold in color so they match the opening theme of Maximus walking through a wheatfield.
