I didn’t have high hopes

I didn’t have high hopes as I headed into the theatre to see The Gladiator, expecting the typical Hollywood tough guy action movie, complete with a hasta la vista, baby or yippee ki-yay, motherfucker. I was glad to be wrong. The acting was solid, the music was good, the cinematography was very good - frequently outstanding - and to my surprise, the storyline was one of the better aspects of the movie. Go for the action, stay for the…umm…rest of it.
