Storyline

In an age of Gladiators, the power that was Rome held its empire together with the might of its armies, the sweat and tears of its conquests, and the cheers and bloodlust of its citizens - glorified in the deadly spectacle of The Arena. Stolen from their homelands, the fiery Druid maiden Bodicia, exotic slave girl Jessemina, and the powerful barbarian Flavius, are pitted against each other as gladiators by the sadistic Roman Governor Timarchus. Banished by Caesar, Timarchus unleashes his frustration on his gladiators, staging extravagant spectacles of combat, orgy and death. In a violent world where only the strong survive, love and hate, life and death, are separated by an instant. Written by Concorde-New Horizons

Goofs

Early in the movie, Bodicia relates how she was captured by the Romans. She says that her lover gave her a tattoo on the left side of her chest and that they then made love, which the movie shows. As she continues her narrative, of the Romans coming the next morning, the movie shows her fleeing. In this scene, her garments open to bare her chest, but there is no wound, blood, or any other evidence of a tattoo having been given the night before. See more »

Do You really think Gladiator was historically better?
25 April 2003 | by (Firenze, Italy) – See all my reviews

Roger corman went to Russia to produce this ludicrous exploitation movie, trying to gather an audience through the use of Gladiator fame and two beatiful playmates (Lisa Dergan and Karen McDougal) as the leadign actressess of this mess. Rest sure that you get plenty of gore, less nudity than you may expect (but both the leading ladies are really gorgeous), and a story that is almost non-existent, but it is not really so bad as you may think before. As for historicity, even Scott's magnus opus is abysmal in that respect; so, The Arena, at least in this respect, is not worse than its Oscar winning model
