As arguably the most exceptional film-music producer of our time, Hans Zimmer teamed up with Lisa Gerrard to create this naughties classic that ranks alongside greats such as American Beauty and The Dark Knight. Gladiator wouldn't be the same without its dramatic, atmospheric and highly acclaimed soundtrack companion.

8/10 Jack 8th June 2017
This is an epic score that perfectly fit the movie. In fact, I think it adds immensely to the movie, especially in the sweeping battle sequence and in establishing mood in later scenes. The score balances extremely powerful orchestral pieces by Zimmer with Lisa Gerrard's quieter and deeply affecting passages. This soundtrack can be appreciated whether you like the movie or not. My favourite is "Now We are Free" but they are all brilliant. There's nothing more to say really. All classical music fans should hear this.
