    Don’t forget about the amazing soundtrack. Thrilling one minute, reverant sacred and ethereal the next, just listening to this film is an experience

    Definitely up there with some of the great movies in filmmaking history. The story was solid, the movie was beautiful and well-crafted, the acting was superb, and the ending is definitely memorable. Love this movie!!!

  3. When the movie came out, I didn’t expect to like it–gladiators?!–but once I started watching it, I was hooked. Well- deserving of your A+!

    This was one of Ridley Scott’s best films. I remember leaving the theatre in awe when I saw this movie. It was simply amazing. Everything in this film was perfect, the acting, music, the sets. Honestly a completely perfect film for me. Great post! 😊

    I could watch this movie over and over and still never tire of it. Whole heatedly agree with this review.

  7. HERE! HERE!! They DON’T make them like this anymore!! Sadly why I watch more foreign movies than US made! Joaquin was sensational of Commodus! And Russel Crowe? Commanded the screen!!

      I would love more than anything to see more $100 milllion movies like this one, I just don’t think that’s very feasible these days considering the market for film.

    Yeah, Gladiator is a perfect piece of movie! But it definitely doesn’t need any sequels, thank you very much.

  9. M.R. Miller says:

    Your assessment of the Commodus character is spot on. I hated him so much I thought I’d never be able to see Joaquin Phoenix in another movie without having flashbacks to this character. Fortunately, he’s a great actor. Loved him subsequently in “Signs” and “Walk the Line,” among others. Whew.

    • Nick Kush says:

      Phoenix is definitely a”method actor,” always losing himself in the role. Luckily he doesn’t send his co-stars used condoms like Jared Leto lol
