When a Roman General, Maximus Decimus Meridius (Russell Crowe) is betrayed, and his family murdered by an emperor's corrupt son (Joaquin Phoenix), he comes to Rome as a gladiator to seek revenge. In the final days of Marcus Aurelius' (Richard Harris) reign, the aging emperor arouses his son Commodus' anger when he makes known his wish that Maximus be his successor.
