Numerous film release every year, but very few stand out and leave an impact on the minds of viewers. Even fewer films attain cult status and be remembered many years later. One such film has been Gladiator.
As the period action drama completed two decades, Russell Crowe remembered one of his most iconic films. As it marked twenty years of its release, the lead actor quoted one of the most iconic dialogues of the film, “What we do in life, echoes in Eternity…” and it was enough to send his fans into a frenzy.

Netizens went gaga over the tweet, terming the film as a ‘masterpiece’, ‘classic’, ‘amazing’ and more.
