Opening battle scence from 'Gladiator' - A devastating fighting force

I think this scene gives some glimpse of how effective the Roman army could be. There was the equivalent of howitzers and air strikes. Also, when we think of both thrusting and hacking swords, arrows, oil-fire bomb projectiles, and those big arrows that are fired from a cranked up mechanism... I mean, I'd rather just take a bullet! Lastly, the sheer bravery of all ancient warriors to engage in this type of wicked combat.
