'Battle Formation, Archers, Catapults! ATTACK!!!' And there is the clash of steel,
the thundering of hooves, war cries, dismembered limbs, severed heads, howls of
death and shouts of triumph. And as the bloody dust clears, it's another victory
for the invincible Romans, this time against the barbarians at the border of Germania,
under the command of the mighty and courageous Commander Maximus (Russell Crowe).
This battle scene, shown in an all its gory reality, is how the movie begins,
and ensures that even a hundred horses will not drag you from your seat.
