I thought it was OK. The thought you put into it and history was the best. But it was too easy...the enemy had 461 vs your 216, but your army soooo much more powerful. I know historically that's true but 2/3's of his army was Militia and Men-at-Arms, the other third was Huskarls, which gave me the worst trouble in the fact that they killed some of my archers. But another thing, what was the Cataphract's prupose to sit there. I put'em to work. I used them to kill all of the Goth's army on the East. Hence, securing the way Maximus is to go.
BOTTOM LINE: great story line...way too easy!!!

No offence SirWalker!
But you shouldn't believe everything u see in a movie! In movies, things are added to make it look better!
Sure only 1 in 7 or 1 in 10, (not sure which) of Roman Legionnaries where Italian! The rest where from around the Empire!
And the son of Marcus' son (the young boy, son of bad guy) was actually Marcus' son, the one (the evil guy)that was Emperor throughout the main part of the movie was actually his grandchild! So u can't believe all u see!
Also the years that Marcus was alive in where also false in the movie! Didn't live long enough in movie!
