Gladiator is an action packed movie that is realistic and extremely emotional. Starring Academy Award winning Russell Crowe it is about a great general becoming a gladiator in the ancient Roman Empire. Filled with betrayal, loyalty, and love this story will let loose your emotions. You will be sucked in easily by the characters and sit on the edge of your seat wondering what will happen next.

Ridley Scott has mastered the art of camera angles and lighting creating scenes of evil when it is dark and scenes of redemption when bright and white. So well has he established good and bad with simple shadows that he allows you to tell if a character is good or bad on first glance. He has also picked the perfect songs to entice your emotions. I recommend this movie for people 10 and up who can take a lot of violence and treachery.
