Synopsis : Winner of 5 Academy Awards including Best Picture and Best Actor, Gladiator now comes as an Extended Special Edition, featuring 17 minutes of additional footage not shown in cinemas. Personally overseen by Director Ridley Scott, this 3-Disc Edition, with all-new bonus materials, delivers the most intense Gladiator experience ever.
Russell Crowe is Roman General Maximus, commanding an army in Germany, who is thrown into slavery as a gladiator when the evil prince Commodus plots to claim the thrown for himself. As a gladiator he excels and soon becomes famous, but can he use his skills to gain his revenge? The opening sequence is truly horrific as the Romans slaughter the Germans in a vicious battle, showing you how horrendous being in a battle could have been. As Maximus says as they commence 'At my signal, unleash hell.' Russell Crowe is the main focus of the film as there's hardly a scene without him in it; his brooding restrained performance is the centrepiece of the film. He can only get bigger and bigger from now on.
