An accidental success
6 August 2002 | by See all my reviews

I actually was supposed to rent the Gladiator with Russel Crowe in it but the videos must have been mixed up. Anyway i thoughrouly enjoyed this powerful boxing movie. Some people may cringe at it, as it's rather violent. But the heaps of action and street life is cool and entertains all through the movie.

8/5 out of 10.
