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 blur effect that appears halfway through the war scene between Maximus' Army and the Germanic tribes was not originally intended. The scene was shot in the early evening, but continued too long, and the light was drastically diminished. In order... ...
And after your glorious coup, what then? You take your five thousand and... leave?
Maximus: Yes, I will leave. The soldiers will stay here for your protection, under the guidance of the Senate.
Gracchus: So, after Rome's all yours, you just give it back to the people....
After Maximus defeats Tigris of Gaul, the left side of his neck is covered in blood. However, when Comodos approaches him, there is no sign of the blood.
Both the Dreamworks & Universal logos are altered to appear gold in color so they match the opening theme of Maximus walking through a wheatfield.
