Gladiator (2000) Poster


Tomas Arana: Quintus



  • Commodus : Rise. Rise.

    [Maximus stands up, clenching an arrow head in his right hand] 

    Commodus : Your fame is well deserved, Spaniard. I don't think there's ever been a gladiator to match you. As for this young man, he insists you are Hector reborn. Or was it Hercules? Why doesn't the hero reveal himself and tell us all your real name? You do have a name.

    Maximus : My name is Gladiator.

    [turns away from Commodus] 

    Commodus : How dare you show your back to me! Slave, you will remove your helmet and tell me your name.

    Maximus : [removes helmet and turns around to face Commodus]  My name is Maximus Decimus Meridius, commander of the Armies of the North, General of the Felix Legions and loyal servant to the TRUE emperor, Marcus Aurelius. Father to a murdered son, husband to a murdered wife. And I will have my vengeance, in this life or the next.

    [Commodus trembles in disbelief] 

    Quintus : Arms!

    [Praetorians point their spears at the gladiators while the Colosseum crowd chants for them to live. Commodus shakes his head and motions the crowd for silence. He then raises his fist and reluctantly gives the thumbs-up signal] 

  • Quintus : People should know when they are conquered.

    Maximus : Would you, Quintus? Would I?

  • [during the fight with Maximus, Commodus loses his sword] 

    Commodus : Quintus, sword!

    [Quintus does nothing] 

    Commodus : Give me your sword!

    [Quintus does nothing] 

    Commodus : [to his guards]  Sword, give me a sword!

    [the guards unsheathe their swords] 

    Quintus : Sheathe your swords! Sheathe your swords!

    [the guards sheathe their swords] 

  • Maximus : Quintus, look at me. Look at me! Promise me that you'll look after my family.

    Quintus : Your family will meet you in the afterlife.

  • Quintus : Maximus, please be careful, that wasn't prudent.

    Maximus : Prudent? The Emperor has been slain.

  • [Maximus is about to ride out with the cavalry to fight the barbarians] 

    Quintus : Soldier! I told you to move those catapults forward. They're out of range.

    Maximus : Range is good.

    Quintus : The danger to the cavalry...

    Maximus : Is acceptable. Agreed?
