backtrack; Gladiator (2000)


Honest, hardworking hero more or less single-handedly challenges an evil emperor against all odds. Say hello to The Oldfashioned Historical Epic, gently brushed up for the new millennium.

Not a very likely story, but one of the most impressive historical adventures of the last several decades. In my book of Roman revenge matinee movies.

    Too much shaky cam in the battle sequences, but it’s certainly an engaging story.

  2. I’m divided when it comes to shaking cameras. Sometimes they irritate me, sometimes I think they enhance the storytelling. A bit of both in this one, I suppose.
