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 young actor who plays Maximus' son, Giorgio Cantarini, also played Guido's son Joshua in Life Is Beautiful (1997). Both men playing his father (Russell Crowe and Roberto Benigni) ended up winning the Oscar for Best Actor for the role.
Ultimately, we're all dead men. Sadly, we cannot choose how but, what we can decide is how we meet that end, in order that we are remembered, as men.
After Maximus defeats Tigris, who is clean-shaven, several soldiers lead him out of the Colosseum. One with a beard looks like Tigris, but it's not him.
Both the Dreamworks & Universal logos are altered to appear gold in color so they match the opening theme of Maximus walking through a wheatfield.
