Before making a decision to watch the Gladiator series, I needed to review a few movies in the series first. After watching the first movie, Gladiator was very challenging to follow along with. But if you find yourself with the willpower and the need to watch the remaining movies, you will surely enjoy them.
The first movie set up a premise. There is an ancient Roman gladiator in ancient times, who was trained to fight with his own hands. He was chosen by one of the Emperor's sons, to get the training and expertise. As the story progresses, the gladiator gains the ability to use weapons and, at some point, learns that he has been betrayed. What happens next is amazing.
At the end of the movie, we learn that the character was actually betrayed because he betrayed his brother. Now he is alone, and he goes after the leader of the Roman legions. This was a very well-written movie.
After finishing the film, I immediately went to my online movie review site to see if the review was any good. It turned out to be a hard task because each movie was more engaging than the previous one.
The second movie is now easier to follow along with because it doesn't require a sequel to exist. The story is told from the main character's point of view, which makes things simpler for the reader. And, at the end of the movie, the character learns that he is not what he seemed to be, after all. Not only does this make the movie easy to read, but it also makes me laugh so hard!
My review of the third movie was what I expected when reviewing the previous movies in the Gladiator series. For those who liked watching the first three movies in sequence, then this movie may not be for you. I dorecommend watching the first two movies first, as this movie continues from where the others leave off.
The third movie was also very good. The setting is also a bit different. I found the jokes in this movie a bit overused. It also reminded me of the third season of Seinfeld, and that's a shame.
Overall, I had a great time reading the Gladiator reviews on my online movie review site. The second movie is a good watch, but I would have preferred to start with the first movie.
