Maximus Decimus Meridius (Russell Crowe) reveals his true identity behind the gladiator mask after being forced by the new emperor Commodus in the epic movie Gladiator.


Print transcript

Commodus: Why doesn't the hero reveal himself and tell us all your real name? You do have a name.

Maximus: My name is Gladiator.

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

Maximus: My name is Maximus Decimus Meridius, commander of the Armies of the North, General of the Felix Legions, 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.

Quintus: Arms!
