It's funny, it's tense, it features two great performances from two actors and the director expertly creates a web of odd tension where you actually don't know what is happening for the majority of the run time.

This movie feels like it was made purely to piss off people who want good shows

Re-watching this after several years has caused me to revise my rating upwards. I must have been over-influenced by reading the silly one-star reviews. This is an inventive and fictional tale, set in imperial Rome, with one or two actual historical characters. Unlike phony Braveheart, it in no way sets out to distort actual history. It is exceptionally skilfully directed, and the narrative never lets up. Ridley seems always to get the best from his actors. One of the least boring epics I've ever watched. Ridley Scott can turn his hand to any genre. Miles ahead of Kubrick: it's as if he is saying: I see what you're at, Stan, let me show you how to do it. Sometimes it steers dangerously close to excessive emotion, but time and again avoids bathos. Excellent script and dialogue. Visually masterful. Great movie.

Do you love action? Child endangerment? Love the Roman empire? Incest? This is the movie for you. A lot happens in it's long run time. Dont get me wrong though it's a fun ride throughout. With only a couple parts that drag. Otherwise decent pacing. Great acting by most of the cast. Phoenix is fun. One of the classics that you should definitely try and watch

What An amazing movie , the hardships the main character had to go through to not only survive but seek revenge transmit to us his pain and suffering , The movie is beautifully shot and the dialogues well written . But truly what elevated this movie for me was the score by Hanz Zimmer , im truly speechless at how amazing not only "now we are free " is . But all the soundtracks in the movie really gives you the feel of grief when you need to feel sad , of heroism when you need to feel brave , but post importantly of hope when you know the end is near ! All around amazing movie , with the best soundtrack I've heard to date !
