We don’t have trouble appreciating those who deserve it. The battle scenes in this action picture needed a great deal of talent. However, most moviegoers miss something significant in this picture. Viewers were able to glimpse Russell Crowe’s lycra shorts when he fell. No one in ancient Rome would have worn Lycra shorts, even though they look wonderful on males today.
Because those shorts didn’t exist in those ages, even if they wanted to wear them behind their armor. And, alas, the ancient Romans were sadly left out. If the product is already wasting a lot of money and time over producing such a movie they should at least Research and do their homework about the costumes and the dresses and when they were exactly worn by the organizations instead of just randomly choosing the costumes.
