He stabbed Maximus in the love handle before their final fight, which is pretty crappy fighting etiquette. He then covered the wound up, forcing Maximus to fight while slowly bleeding to death, all so he could get the glory of his people. BOOOOOOOOOO, Commodus! BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
We don’t know what happens to Commodus (Joaquin Phoenix) in the near term, but we know that the Roman Empire does eventually fall, so he gets his comeuppance. Eventually.
I’m beginning to think the Romans weren’t the best guys in the world. Then I remember that they killed my savior, and I get all sorts of ornery. Gladiator matches aren’t supposed to be like bullfights. One side isn’t supposed to have a distinct advantage over the other heading into the fight.
So how do the Romans explain using TIGERS against the slave fighters. TIGERS! I’m no fighting expert, but I would think that the side with the tigers would have a clear advantage on account of possessing several 700-pound killing machines.
No-brainer. Sure he went around killing people AFTER they said “mate’, “but his legacy will be for throwing an unidentified poison/blinding agent into the eyes of Frank Dux, who still managed to win the fight, reverting back to his training with the bald Shaolin Monk trainer in his early days.
I also wouldn’t be surprised to learn that Chung Li also did cocaine and rode in the HOV lane by himself. He simply feels the rules don’t apply to him, the bastard.
