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.
Five tigers were brought in for the scene in the arena where Maximus fights Tigris the Gaul. A veterinarian armed with tranquilizer darts was present the entire time. For safety's sake, Russell Crowe was kept at least fifteen feet away from the tigers.
You're good, Spaniard, but you're not that good. You could be magnificent.
During Maximus' second fight in Zucchabar, he cuts the stomach of the fourth gladiator he confronts in the first shot. Two shots later, when Maximus thrusts his sword between the man's left arm and torso, there is no wound on the man's torso.
Both the Dreamworks & Universal logos are altered to appear gold in color so they match the opening theme of Maximus walking through a wheatfield.
