We love this movie. The thumbs up/thumbs down scene is still vivid in my memory.

Unbelievably good.

When I first sat down to watch Gladiator, I was expecting a moderately entertaining "beat-'em-up" flick with good action but little purpose. When I rose up out of my chair after finishing the movie, I realized that Gladiator had become one of the best movies I'd ever seen.

Gladiator focuses on Maximus, a Spanish general leading the Roman army against the Germans. After successfully conquering Germania, Maxiums finds himself caught in the middle of a power-struggle between the Emperor Marcus-Aurelius and his son, the Imperial Prince Commodus. After Commodus rises to the throne, he demands that Maximus serve him and after refusing, Maximus is enslaved and sold to fight as a gladiator while his family is put to death. The story has an interesting and exciting plot that keeps moving forward while also featuring lots of good action.
