Spartacus is a 2004 television adaptation of the Howard Fast novel, made by USA Network Pictures and distributed by USA Cable Entertainment LLC and Universal Home Entertainment. It was directed by Robert Dornhelm and produced by Ted Kurdyla from a teleplay by Robert Schenkkan based on the novel by Howard Fast.

The plot, setting, and costumes are nearly identical to those of the Stanley Kubrick 1960 version. However, this adaptation covers practically all the historical inaccuracies of the 1960 film (two of the more noticeable omissions being "I'm Spartacus!" and Spartacus' and his wife's reunion after the battle). The movie is shown as a story a woman narrates to her son, which are later revealed to be Spartacus' wife and son. A curious detail about the film is that Spartacus' son is born exactly at the moment Spartacus dies in battle.

  • To become like your enemy is to lose to him.


David: My people pray to a god who doesn't answer. Who leaves it up to us to decide how to behave.
Spartacus: A good god for a free man?
David: Not when answers are what you need.
Spartacus: Maybe that's the price we pay to live in a world where we get to choose.
