Bottom Line: If you’re looking for an action-packed, blood-soaked, Gladiator-esque adventure…then go rent GLADIATOR. This movie doesn’t soar, but if you’re okay with a way too long, half-decently acted, get-to-the-point-already, overly-dialogued, sword-and-sandals, bloodletting, wannabe knock-off then you might be on par with THE EAGLE.
