Ralph Fiennes gets bloodied

The film, as any Shakespeare scholar will know, concerns the titular Roman general and the consequences of his storming victory over Rome's enemy, Aufidius (Gerard Butler). His military prowess sees him offered Rome's highest political honours and encouraged by his mother (Vanessa Redgrave) to take them - but his contempt for the people lands him in serious trouble, and Aufidius and friends are still lurking just over the border...
