Are You Not Entertained?

Gladiator is groundbreaking. Interesting story about the movie. I didn’t see the movie until I was about 19, but I felt like I saw the movie thirty times already. The reason being that my mom was a big fan of Russell Crowe. So she used to have the movie on all the time. However after seeing the movie beginning to end, it all came together. “Sword and Sandal” movies were not popular at the time Gladiator was released. After the overwhelmingly positive response, “Sword and Sandal” came back in a big way. Gladiator succeeds with devoted performances and spectacular action sequences. It will probably make you want to learn more about the time period. A high recommendation, especially for Oscar season.
