The climactic arena sequence is not squeezed for sanctimonious titillation quite as in DeMille, and no matter the filmmakers' motivations, the spectacle of martyrs and lions is sure to move the jaded and bloodthirsty audience, which includes of course the movie viewers.

 Quo Vadis (1951)
The water Quo Vadis dives into are excellent for any historical epic: you have persecutions and martyrdoms, the glory of ancient Rome reaching its apex, and a mad emperor who murdered his own mother.
As with most historical movies of the time, the acting is geared less toward realism and more toward a hightened feel of D-R-A-M-A and ostentatious monologues, but, compared to many of the historical 'epics' of today, it has a strong emotional core and a passion for its subject.
Anyway, the movie really does draw a great deal from the Roman historians on Nero, who was greatly despised in his own time even before he became notorious for the whole ‘killing Christians’ thing.

I'm not usually one to talk about movies; in fact, I rarely watch them, but Quo Vadis is one of those few decent films.
In the movie, a Roman military commander, Marcus Vinicius, falls in love with a convert to Christianity, Lygia.
Despite a few anachronisms the movie is largely historically acurate (my one objection being that in one scene a probably invalid form of Baptism was used).

It's sort of the dilemma faced by war movies, even ones intended to be antiwar: you can't help but provide a visceral thrill by depicting what you're trying to argue against.
