This film felt more like a B side film then a Hollywood production. Visually there are some impressive elements, but the film falls flat in its attempts to connect emotionally, the acting is subpar for the most part, and many parts are laughably ridiculous. There is a lot of violence in the film, mostly within a gladiator arena. Though not as gory as it could be, you still see swords go through people and limbs getting gashed. Overall, I wasn't impressed, and don't think many others will be either.
