Stanley Kubrick directed a cast of screen legends--including Kirk Douglas as the indomitable gladiator who led a Roman slave revolt--in the sweeping epic that defined a genre and ushered in a new Hollywood era. The assured acting, lush Technicolor cinematography, bold costumes and visceral fight sequences won "Spartacus" four Oscars.
Best Picture Golden Globe Winner 1960.
Roman general Maximus (Russell Crowe) goes from hero to zero, then fights back to win the heart of an Empire in this action-packed and emotionally charged blockbuster. When Emperor Marcus Aurelius (Richard Harris) chooses Maximus to be his heir instead of his treacherous son Commodus (Joaquin Phoenix), the result is murder. When his rival seizes power and massacres his family, Maximus is enslaved and thrown into the gladiatorial ring to fight his way to death or glory. Stunning special effects and superb performances from Russell Crowe and Joaquin Phoenix as the deadly enemies Maximus and Commodus make Ridley Scott's Gladiator an experience to be savoured again and again.
