Storyline

In its war on the Greek peninsula, the Romans convince the Thracians to join them in defeating the Getae, who have been raiding Thracian villages for generations. The Thracians are fierce warriors and prove to be valiant in battle. They are deceived by the Roman commander, Claudius Glaber, who orders them to fight against the Greeks, something they had not counted on. One of them in particular refuses to fight and rebels against the Romans only to lose the fight and is enslaved along with his wife Sura. The Thracian is transported to Capua where Senator Albinius is sponsoring gladiatorial games. In the arena, the enslaved Thracian manages to defeat four opponents and in allowing the Thracian to live, Senator Albinius decides to name him after a Thracian king from the past: Spartacus.

Goofs

When Illithyia surprises Glaber inside his tent, she remarks "What if I'd been an 'Assassin?' I'd be a widow." The story of Spartacus begins around 75 B.C.; two years prior to the beginning of the Third Servile War. The term "assassin" is based on the Arabic name "Hashashin" which was likened to a group of Nizari Ismalis who operated in the Middle East during the Crusades; approximately 1500 years following the events of Spartacus. Therefore the term Assassin was not a common reference for a silent killer during this time period. See more »

CGI stuff of fake breast and pathos.
30 June 2012 | by (Czech Republic) – See all my reviews

CGI stuff of fake breast and pathos. Great story badly acted and even worse cast. I doubt women in BC ages looked like the Playboy bunnies, and sounded like soap opera hags. Not that much of real sand, but strange CGI blood splashes around like ... in a gay porn. The whole thing seem like a bad violence pornography. In 300 it looked like art, and here it looks like one just badly imitated... One gets to appreciate the HBO even more. The only good thing about it is that they try to make something adult and real, even though they do fail so miserably. Nothing seems to be real, the dialogs are stale and without any wit. Even the older actors look unprepared and tired, just going trough the motions to get the paycheck. I don't mind sex, heck I love it, and I am not bothered by violence if I care about the cause, but here it is just so dull, and stale and uninspired... So sad...
