Gladiator - Left or Right Hand Stab?
The part where Maximus alone faces a few opponents in the arena(before going to Rome). Maximus beheads his last opponent using both hands/two swords. Before that he stabs the same opponent with the two swords and left it sticking on his chest/belly.
This is fast so watch carefully...
Notice that Maximus stabs with his right hand first, and then he stabs with his LEFT hand using the second sword, while pulling away his right hand from the first sword.
Immediately cut to a new angle, see his RIGHT hand just leaving the second sword as if the second stab was made using that right hand. But it should be his LEFT, right?
Please verify.

Because of the weird angle, it is difficult to tell, BUT, he is actually stabbing first with his left hand, and secondly with his right hand. You can see this if you can slow it down and stop it at the right moment.

this is definitely a (minor) mess-up. he clearly uses different hands in each cut.
