Gladiator (2000) is one of the worst films I've ever seen.

I swear this is not a shitpost or bait. I had never seen this before and went in expecting an epic action movie. Instead, I got a melodrama with glacial pacing that feels way up its own ass to even take seriously. The story is a boring soap opera, the fights are all unsatisfying to watch and honestly the excessive blood and gore was a bit lame.

Ridley Scott isn't even that bad of a director in my opinion but once I realized he directed this I kinda just deflated. Please tell me other people feel the same way because this sucked.

      Uh, no. I wasn't entertained. The film was actually a bit depressing so the opposite happened.

    Can you say what you liked about the film then? Because nothing about it worked in my opinion. It's just not enjoyable to watch.

    Could you really expect something enjoyed by boomers and generation x to be actually good? All the acclaim for their flicks are meme powered.

    I saw it back then and also thought it is overrated as frick. I still like it, it's a 8/10 solid movie, but to think it is beyond that is delusional.

    Yeah it’s genuinely fricking terrible. The editing in particular is so bad for a big Hollywood movie. Compare it to Ben Hur it’s actually crazy how American cinema has just gotten worse in the most rudimentary technical ways. And it’s gotten even worse since 2000 with the increased prevalence of digital shit in every movie.

    Do you think Citizen Kane had the same impact it did in the 40s as it did in the 90s? Do you think The Matrix is passe and cliche? Did you see it in theaters when it premiered, or did you catch it on cable 20 years later?
    The movie was fun and a product of its time, maybe you are just a pleb who can't into context?

      Not OP but I watched it in school. It was one of the few movies shown to me in school that was actually good.

      Why should you have to cuck your own brain by denying your genuine response and looking at the movies through some "must have been good back in the day" filtered.

      By your logic if there's a new movie and they cast a fricking black person or a troony in it we can enjoy it by saying it's a product of its time. (The age of POZ)

    The CGI is dated but other than that it's a pretty solid movie.

      I remember when Beowulf came out and there were commercials for it everywhere and I literally could not tell if it was filmed in real life or if it was CGI. Like if I looked at it long enough my brain told me something was off but in 2007 I wasn't used to seeing CGI be anywhere even close to being this realistic so I figured it had to have been real people. Pretty funny to think about now.

    Gladiator was THE movie to start with when I suddenly had a widescreen plasma TV, Blu-Ray player, and surround sound with fridge-sized sub-woofers

    Like the movie or don't, but it's really well-paced. You blink your eyes and you're 50 minutes into the thing.

    The first part with the battle against Germans should not have been included into the film. It misleadingly sets the tone that the movie will be epic in scope. Instead, we are confined to the stadiums. I was really disappointed by this.

    It might be the most overrated film on Cinemaphile outside of Jackson's LotR flicks. Oliver Reed was the best part of it.
