About the film:

Gladiator is a 2000 historical epic film directed by Ridley Scott. Gladiator takes place in AD 180 and is loosely based on historical figures. Roman forces, led by the general Maximus (Russell Crowe), defeat Germanic tribes, bringing temporary peace to the Roman Empire. The emperor, Marcus Aurelius (Richard Harris), tells Maximus that he would like Maximus to succeed him upon his death and for Maximus to return power to the Senate, restoring the Roman Republic. However, when Marcus Aurelius tells his arrogant and unstable son Commodus (Joaquin Phoenix) about the plan, Commodus flies into a rage and kills his father. Commodus becomes emperor and orders the death of Maximus and his family. Maximus escapes and rushes to his home in Spain, only to find his wife and son already dead and his house burned down. Maximus is then taken by a slave trader to North Africa, where he is sold to the gladiator trainer Proximo (Oliver Reed)...
