He guys, I am in it, too :woot:

I do hope you guys noticed Jurjen actually plays the lead role, but then again, how could you, as his avatar shows him with a facemask Big Grin

There was many a hilarious moment during the shooting of this film. The audience was acting with a plastic bag sat on the ground as a focal point, but I assure you, there was little fight left in it. And if you are wondering why Jurjen looks so convincingly scared in the chase shot, well, he was running between the cameraman shooting from the boot of a driving car with two horses thundering down on him from behind!! Now that is one brave dude!!

For all those always complaining about movie accuracy, well, as far as I can tell, this is about as good as it gets!

A great pleasure to watch a film that deals with the subject of gladiators with accuracy, not sensationalism. Loved it. Great job.
