I liked this one so much I saw it twice. Okay, duh, I’m a guy. This means I like a good action scene and some crazy violence. “Gladiator” has more than its fair share of both, and director Ridley Scott has put some interesting twists on them. But what is really impressive is how Russell Crowe carries the entire film with dignity rather than dialogue. There’s no cheesy Schwarzenegger one-liners after he kills somebody, instead, you see a tinge of regret. And it’s that dedication to taking the story’s simple revenge plot so seriously that makes it work.
