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.
Despite winning the Oscar for best visual effects, famous film critic Roger Ebert spoke in an interview with Charlie Rose that the film had "bad special effects."
The frost, it sometimes makes the blade stick.
During the second battle of Zucchabar Maximus is fighting the gladiator who wears an oversized helmet with the metal galea on it. Maximus' first cut is across the gladiator's stomach but when he delivers the stab wound which is to be the fatal wound it is obvious that he pushes his sword between the gladiators left arm & side, you can even see the gladiator lift his arm to accommodate it.
Both the Dreamworks & Universal logos are altered to appear gold in color so they match the opening theme of Maximus walking through a wheatfield.
