This is a very interesting article by my good friend Darren Laur of Canada.

Interesting. I always interpreted the stabbing of Crowe's character in Gladiator to be too low to be a lung strike. To me it looked more like a kidney strike, meant to bleed him to death and ensure he wouldn't survive afterwards, no matter what happened. Puncturing his lung intentionally would have, of course, led to not having the match in the first place, and even a mentally unbalanced Roman prince would know that.
