Ending
Maximus is a Roman general and answers directly to Emperor Marcus. The Emperor is near death, and tells Maximus that he wants Max to assume the throne when he dies. (Max just wants to go home to his wife and son, and just be a farmer.) Marcus’ kids show up - his very strong daughter, Lucilla, and his very weak, depraved son, Commodus. Commodus learns his dad isn’t going to name him next to the throne, so the loving son smothers his dad, then has Max taken into custody. Max escapes from Commodus' men who were sent to kill him, but when he gets back to his farm, he finds his family murdered and the farm burned. Max is picked up by a caravan and is forced to become a gladiator. Proximo (his owner) sees Max’ potential and trains him to be the best. They go to Rome so the gladiators may fight and Max can get his revenge. Max soon becomes the favorite, and Commodus learns who Max really is. They have a fight to death scheduled. The Emperor weakens Maximus, but he manages to kill the man who murdered his family. Max is mortally wounded, though and before long, he's pushing up daisies, too. Lucilla’s very young son, Lucius, is now the Emperor. Moving film reel
