Ridley Scott’s beloved 2000 action-adventure film Gladiator is set during Roman times. It stars Russell Crow as Maximus, a once-powerful Roman general who served under emperor Marcus Aurelius (Richard Harris). But when Marcus dies, his son, Commodus (Joaquin Phoenix) orders Marcus to be executed. Marcus escapes but is forced to battle other warriors to the death as a gladiator. You can stream Gladiator with an Amazon Prime Video subscription, or on Netflix when it becomes available on Oct. 1.
