Very good, sweeping gladiator movie
10 May 2000 | by johnboy1See all my reviews

Love this flick! Anyone know where I might get a copy? It has great battles, plus Lawrence Harvey is great in his final scene! I'd take it, even if it was in a foreign language. If you have never seen it, be sure to watch it at your first opportunity. A very good gladiator movie.
