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.
He enters Rome like a conquering hero. But what has he conquered?
Falco: Give him time, Gracchus. He's young, he may do very well.
Gracchus: For Rome? Or for you?
When Maximus is bound up before the final battle with Commodus, the binding on Maximus' right wrist is large enough to slip off easily.
