I purchased this movie despite reading the negative reviews about it. I wasn't expecting Kingdom Of Heaven or stellar performances from it's actors. What I was expecting, at least, was (some) type of performance or a reasonable storyline. This movie delivers neither. During the first 20 minutes, I found it mildly entertaining and likened it to the old spaghetti westerns I used to watch. It even appeared to have a promising concept to it's plot. Unfortunately, the movie quickly fell apart after 20 minutes. Poor voiceovers aside, the acting was simply atrocious and the plot appeared to lose direction. The feigned emotions or total lack thereof, turned the already improbable scenes into a farce. What was the deal with the love triangle between Rachel, Peter and Andrew?! A Jewish woman who enters the Rabbinical studies under the guise of a man and, without any time allotted to aforethought, becomes embroiled in a love triangle between a Christian Crusader and half-muslim blacksmith?! I don't think so!!! Another example is Richard's enchantment with the relic of the true cross during the battle for Jerusalem. He was more like a zombie on Thorazine than a man possessed with religious conviction. That's not to mention his total lack of any semblance of vengence toward his beloved father's murder at the hands of his usurping uncle. One would have at least wrestled with the concept before choosing a path between peace or revenge. I understand that some things can get lost in translation but, so much more was lost here than the transition between two languages. I found the movie to be almost unbearable but I still watched it to the end, just so I could say I did. In closing I'd like to assert that I've seen High School plays that showed more ambition than this movie. The only saving grace this movie had was the performance by Peter's character which, (at times), showed some real potential. And, it's my understanding that these were some seasoned actors playing these parts. I would only recommend this movie as a, "Don't Just Take My Word For It", proof of concept.
