So when I first heard of this plan for a Gladiator sequel I was a little disappointed that it never came to fruition. I mean, the original was a fantastic movie, full of violence, blood and gore and awesome special effects. Oh, and it had a storyline of some description attached to all of the fun. It was just simply a marvelous movie. But in reality, how could there be a Gladiator sequel if the main character had died, unless they planned on using another character, which they didn’t? So how was this all going to be played out?
Now before you go and get all excited at the prospect of seeing Russel Crowe don some leathers to reprise his buff role as a zombie Maximus, the plot made about as much sense as using a match to see if your gas tank is empty, maybe even less. To be brutally honest, it would seem like the writers were ingesting some of this product when they were working on the project.
