    I said 9. Crowe was in peak form and it was one of Joaquin Phoenix best roles to date.

    There's is an interview with Phoenix where they asked him about playing Johhny Cash. He said he never got an ok from him but Cash met him at some event and told him he enjoyed him in Gladiator and said his delivery of the description of what the soldiers did to Maximus' wife was perfect. Said it made him feel like it was more or less a stamp of approval.

    Agreed.

    I went to watch the movie after hearing all the hype about it. Was a good movie by itself but pretty disappointing after getting hyped up.

    And WTF was with Commodus challenging Maximus to a duel...

    9.5/10 for me. One of my favorite movies ever... Crowe is such a bad ass as Maximus.

    I think it has aged pretty well.

    Nearly perfect. One of the greats, holds up well still. Maybe I’ll go watch it...

    Wasn't into the Brother/Sister romance.... Probably why i dont really watch Game of Thrones either.

    Original Spartacus or Ben Hur for me.

    I think Pheonix went a bit beyond delivering a few rousing lines and his Commodus would really be the main thing that takes it beyond a standard historical action film.

    You could argue certainly its disappointing in one way as a film focused on Commodus and the decline of the empire after the 2nd century would probably have been a lot more interesting. I spose he's getting a bit old but I wouldn't mind seeing Phoenix play a role like Nero or Caligula in the future.

    Has some basis in reality as well, the actual Commodus fought in the games against animals to push his personality cult..
