I really liked the performances of pretty much the whole cast. Russell Crowe was moving in his role as Maximus, Richard Harris and Connie Nielsen did well with what they had to work with, but the real standout is Joaquin Phoenix as Commodus. The character is really evil, but he's not one-dimensional; his background is actually quite sad. The action scenes are well-staged, and the finale is very satisfying. 8/10

Gladiator is an epic one mans fight for freedom -- with a stunning direction from Ridley Scott and his more artistic way of visualizing a historical flick like this one. It got many pleasing moments of action & tension, and some character moments is seen on screen, even if more would have enhanced the experience a lot more! Still; it's a stunning and surreal movie that really deserves its praise!

Personal rating: 80/100
Critical rating: 80/100

Gladiator is a truly wonderful film, with a brilliant presentation, characters and actors. While some scenes could have been stretched out further (including the early battles and the death of Maximus' family, to really hit home his loss), it doesn't take anything away from a wonderful film from start to finish.

Its absolutely stunning to see the brutality of the Colosseum, the governing of an empire, an unrelenting revenge tale and some history mixed together into one masterpiece.

It's big, it's glorious... and it's Braveheart. I happened to watch this movie the day after seeing Braveheart, and I couldn't but notice that it's essentially the same movie with gladiators instead of scotsmen. They even have the same runtime of 2 hours and 50 minutes. The main difference is that I was never bored during Braveheart. And that Gibson's performance was SOOOOO much better than Crowe's.

A powerful movie that's just as much about family as it is about gladiators.
