The initial battle in Gladiator was flawed because it did not show why the Romans won battles! It was not a cavalry charge! The battle was just a giant melee. The Rome series did show a cohort fighting in formation with the legionaries rotating and Pullo gets disciplined for breaking formation. In Gladiator there is no Roman formation!
