Although the film is inspired by a real fact, Gus Van Sant didn't want to know much about the real story but arranged the plot in according to Casey Affleck and Matt Damon's suggestions and ideas.

As a result, the movie seems to be shot by a bored director and lazy actors even the remarkble photography and the hopeless attempt to imitate Bela Tarr's  directing style.

"My name is Maximus Decimus Meridius, commander of the Armies of the North, General of the Felix Legions and loyal servant to the true emperor, Marcus Aurelius. Father to a murdered son, husband to a murdered wife. And I will have my vengeance, in this life or the next."
Gladiator, 2000
