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.
Oliver Reed's main motivation for taking the part of Proximo was because he fancied a "free trip to London to see a couple of shows."
I am required to kill, so I kill. That is enough.
Proximo: That's enough for the provinces, but not enough for Rome.
In the film, the streets of Rome are very sandy. In reality, they were paved with stones.
Both the Dreamworks & Universal logos are altered to appear gold in color so they match the opening theme of Maximus walking through a wheatfield.
