Gladiator Review: Great story, great writing, great acting, great directing great score! Gladiator has it all. Especially enjoyed the mood of the film. Even though it has a lot of action, there is a subtle elegance throughout the picture that gives it great style. Gladiator flows effortlessly from scene to scene, while at the same time creating wonderful intensity and nail-biting excitement. The acting in the movie more than lives up to expectations. Russell Crowe is brilliant in his role as Maximus, the “general who became a slave, who became a gladiator, who defied an emperor.”
On Gladiator, Crowe’s intense style is perfect for the relentless determination and confidence of Maximus. Joaquin Phoenix is equally wonderful in his role as Commodus, the corrupt emperor. He plays a great villain because he is able to give Commodus depth by showing certain vulnerable or fragile sides, while at the same time instantly transforming to let the ruthless nature of his volatile character shine. It also helps that Joaquin has the classic Caesar look that works perfectly with his role.
Gladiator is filled with many memorable moments that one would need to see more than once to fully appreciate. The excitement felt for me when Rome is first shown in all its wonder. But the whole movie is a rush! Hans Zimmer provides the absolute perfect score to capture the different moods in Gladiator. Ridley Scott sets the perfect tone with his artistic and creative directing. Recommend it to anyone who can stomach intensity and enjoy an epic story for the ages. Next to Braveheart, this movie is the greatest of all-time!
