Gladiators of Rome (Italian: Gladiatori di Roma), also known as Not Born to Be Gladiators and referred to in marketing as Gladiators of Rome 3D, is a 2012 Italian computer-animated comedy film produced by Rainbow CGI and released by Medusa Film. It is directed by Iginio Straffi, and was opened in Italy on October 2012 and was later released across Europe and the Americas. Produced on a budget of $45 million, it is one of the most expensive Italian films ever made.[1] The film grossed between $10 million[2] and $50 million[3] worldwide.


It is the age of Imperial Rome. Young Timo is an orphan of Pompeii's terrible eruption, adopted by general Chirone and raised in the most famous Gladiators' Academy in Rome. However, Timo is not exactly gladiator material. He just wants to hang out with his friends, Ciccius and Mauritius, and avoid his stepfather's bizarre training sessions at all costs. When Timo meets the lovely Lucilla, he decides to change his life and bring out the valor inside himself - valor that has never shown itself before. Through spells, crazy raids in the woods and the terrible trainings of a very personal lady trainer, Timo has to transform himself into the greatest gladiator of all time. And as they say, if "fortune favors the bold" in Rome hard times are awaiting Timo!
