Gladiator; Release date May 5, 2000 (USA); Winner of 5 Academy Awards – made the top of my list for outstanding cinematic achievement and has maintained that position of distinction for more than a decade.
Published a detailed review of the movie “Gladiator” which starred Russell Crowe, who received the Academy Award for his spectacularly awesome performance as the “gladiator who defied an emperor”. The critique was also written to honor one of my favorite actors, the late Robert Oliver Reed (1938 – 1999), who passed away during the making of the film. Many people would likely categorize this film as Action/Adventure or Drama or Historical Fiction (because the writers took artistic liberty with the historical facts). As for me, in my humble imaginative opinion, the film could appropriately be categorized under Superhero Movies because Mr. Crowe played his role like he was a superhero ! :)
