|Jul 15, 2 Heres what I posted in reply to a similar topic: Braveheart shits all over gladiator, at least Braveheart deserved the Best Pic oscar, unlike Gladiator, cos the oscar should have gone to Traffic easy anyway, Braveheart has much more emotion in it, and the character developement of Mel Gibsons character is much better than that of Russel Crowes character, mostly because of the acting when William Wallaces wife is killed, you yourself feel wronged and feel his pain and his revenge is what anyone would do if they were in his position whereas in Gladiator, when the wife dies i didnt care, and it didnt really seem like Maximus did either if he was angry, he didnt really show it plus, the fight scenes in Braveheart are awesome, none of that one on one shit, its a full scale army vs army, much more action packed I agree with you in the fact that William Wallaces character was alot more developed that Maximus.|

Take this scene for example https: Then you have the direction. While Ridley Scott is probably the generations authority on movies of scale, a story with Rome as a backdrop was perfect for him. This is also complete rubbish. Using the previous scene I gave as an example, show me a scene in Braveheart which has greater depth.
Other than face value love, there is no depth to their relationship or her character. She is there just to be killed. Commodus ambition for power contrasted against Maximus desire to be with his family.
A similar logic can be applied to many characters in Braveheart. The only character with arguable depth would be Robert the Bruce, but yet he serves nothing more than a third act pay off.
Every character in Gladiator explores a different facet of human complexity, even the smaller parts like Proximo bring something thematically to the table. They are similar films sure, but Gladiator has greater depth by far, and some of the reasons you gave are complete horse shit.Jul 18, · Gladiator for me because it's less depressing.
