Plot – Spartacus organizes a revolt to reach a free country. The Roman Senate is in fact concerned by the slaves' army and decided to dismantle it but Anthony, a close friend of Spartacus', warns that a Roman legion is approaching. Thanks to the news, Spartacus is able to defeat it and then he heads south. Failing in borrowing ships from some Arab pirates, he now has only one alternative: to attack Rome. The war between Crassus' armies and Spartacus' 60,000 slaves begins. Thousands of people are massacred in a massive conflict and Spartacus is defeated. Crassus makes all prisoners crucify except twenty of them, because he wants them to beat one another, unless they reveal Spartacus' hiding place. The gladiator shows himself: he's reduced to a pitiful state and he's nailed on a cross near one of Rome's gates.
