Awwww wow this is beautiful! I absolutely love the stunning imagery you use and all the intercutting and that beautiful end. It makes me cry, so great. I love the music choice, very pretty yet gritty in the nature of Gladiator.

Wow. This is beautiful and really powerful. I really like how you have worked around the contemporary lyrics to cut through to the heart of the meaning of the song and of the movie.

A fantastic song choice and a great vid. The images and tone of the music made such an impact, highlighting the epic nature of the story very well.

Oh wow, I absolutely adore this vid, thank you so, so much :D

The imagery you've used is beautiful, I particularly like the beginning (but then again I love the whole thing.) I really love how it begins and ends with his family.

And the song choice is wonderful, I think it fits Maximus so pefectly.

Really I can't squee enough about how much I love this, thank you again :D

That is a beautiful video.

Though I admit, I snorted at the 'bad fruit salad' bit.

Thanks so much!

And okay, I feel I must defend the band's good name here. *g* The line is actually 'rotten fruit sellers'.

"Either way / we survive" -- very Gladiator, very true. I enjoyed this extremely, especially as it rises toward the end.
