Synopsis: A Roman general is imprisoned by a jealous emperor and forced to fight as a gladiator.
I'm not sure why this won an Oscar because I didn't care for it all that much. The story wasn't very interesting and the battle/fight/whatever scenes were excessively graphic.
Worth a rental? I suppose. If there's nothing better on the shelf.Added 07 November 2002 at 2:02 AM
