Scene of the Week: Gladiator
No one is ever going to argue that Gladiator is an accurate depiction of life as a gladiator. Probably not even the makers of Gladiator. But it is a supremely awesome tale of revenge set in the ancient world so that makes up for it. I don’t think this is what Maximus had in mind when he set out for vengeance but it sure is entertaining. Maybe the Romans were on to something there.
