R | | Action, Adventure, Drama
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.
For the main protagonist Maximus, Ridley Scott wanted a fresh face for the role, and Russell Crowe was cast.
I want to help you.
Maximus: Yes, you can help me... Forget you ever knew me, and never come back here again.
In the Roma-Carthage battle reenactment, when one of the archers is cut in two by a chariot's wheel blade, a crew member can be seen kneeling in the chariot.
Both the Dreamworks & Universal logos are altered to appear gold in color so they match the opening theme of Maximus walking through a wheatfield.
