|Original entry||In the 'special features' there is a short movie made from excerpts and deleted scenes from the movie. Toward the end, Maximus is standing out on a cliff, and reaches out for something, then looks at his hand and yells. Could someone explain what was going on?

He is most likely praying and reaching out in desperation to get home before the Romans kills his family.]|
