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 bust of the leader was originally painted, and not the bare carved stone in the tent, and around Rome throughout the movie. The paint just flaked off over time.
The beating heart of Rome is not the marble of the Senate, it's the sand of the Colosseum. He'll bring them death and they will love him for it.
After Maximus kills the last legionnaire in the arena's battle of Carthage, he is riding a horse with a blood drenched sword. He then does a 360 degree turn on his horse to the cheers of the crowd, and holds up presumably the very same sword, only its perfectly clean, in victory.
Both the Dreamworks & Universal logos are altered to appear gold in color so they match the opening theme of Maximus walking through a wheatfield.
