Storyline

Sentenced to spend out the rest of his adult life laboring in the harsh deserts of Egypt, the Thracian slave Spartacus gets a new lease on life when he is purchased by the obese owner of a Roman gladiator school. Moved by the defiance of an Ethiopian warrior, Draba, Spartacus leads a slave uprising which threatens Rome's status quo. As Spartacus gains sympathy within the Roman Senate, he also makes a powerful enemy in form of Marcus Lucinius Crassus, who makes it a matter of personal honor to crush the rebellion.

Goofs

In the charge that precipitates the climactic battle, the legionaries of the Roman front line are shown advancing with shields in the left hand, swords in the right. Except for one in the lower foreground: his right hand is empty, he is advancing into combat with only a shield. As soon as he makes contact with a member of the rebel army, he falls on his back even though he hasn't actually been attacked yet. See more »

Both beautiful and accurate
20 April 2004 | by (Wooster, Ohio, USA) – See all my reviews

This was a beautiful and touching version of the classic tale of a brave fight for freedom. The acting was wonderful; Goran Visnjic has a powerful presence and an emotional expression in his starring role. He had a depth to this character that I've never seen so well-portrayed in other versions. Angus MacFadyen's Marcus Crassus was not your typical "flat" villain. And Rhona Mitra was a wonderful Varinia; she and Goran made a perfect couple for the love story in this action picture.

The action was exciting, and I'm glad that Goran and the other actors playing gladiators did their own fight scenes.

Flipping through a book on Roman history as I watched, I was also surprised to find how historically accurate this version is in both the characters and the events that took place.

I loved it! Highly recommended, especially for fans of Roman history who want a more accurate representation of the real event.
