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 prop snow in the opening battle scene and aftermath, was created by using little pieces of rolled up paper.
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.
When Maximus is bound up before the final battle with Commodus, the binding on Maximus' right wrist is large enough to slip off easily.
Both the Dreamworks & Universal logos are altered to appear gold in color so they match the opening theme of Maximus walking through a wheatfield.
