April 2, 2011 / The Ghost


A general who became a slave. A slave who became a gladiator. A gladiator who defied an emperor. A movie which sucks.

Ridley Scott did it again: waste millions of dollars on a movie without 3D, without a lot of CGI and without a good plot. The whole movie is only about killing Commodus. Couldn’ t they come up with a more original plot? They could have made the gladiator emperor for example and let him feed Commodus to the lions. Or let him have a fight with elephaunts.

My alternate plot:

Give the gladiators machineguns, tanks and so on. Shoot a car chase through ancient Rome. It would rule. Bigtime.

“Gladiator” on IMDB. Rate: 4/10. Because 5 would just not do.

    ANY movie where the bad guy(s) get exactly what’s coming to them in SPADES is a great movie in my estimation. Gladiator comes through big time!
