At the beginning of July, Gladiator returned to Netflix after a long absence, and it has also returned to our ranking of the 50 Best Action Movies on Netflix!

Gladiator premiered in theaters around the world in 2000. David Franzoni, John Logan, and William Nicholson wrote the screenplay for the film. Ridley Scott directed Gladiator.

Russell Crowe, Joaquin Phoenix, Connie Nielsen, Oliver Reed, Derek Jacobi, Djimon Hounsou, and Richard Harris starred in the film.

Gladiator tells the story of Maximus (Russell Crowe), a former General in the Roman Army who is jailed for refusing an order from the Roman Emperor Commodus (Joaquin Phoenix). Maximus escapes prison and begins fighting as a Gladiator with the hope that he will one day slay the Emperor.

Gladiator was easily one of the best action movies of the 2000s. It’s also one of the most decorated movies of all time. The film was nominated for 12 Oscars and won in five categories including Best Picture, Best Actor in a Leading Role (Russell Crowe), Best Costume Design, Best Sound, and Best Visual Effects.

If you have not seen Gladiator yet, you have to watch it on Netflix, especially if you are a big fan of action movies. Although Gladiator might be a little overhyped at this point, it is still one of the best action movies of the last 20 years or so.
