Very much a boys film,
This review is from: Kingdom of Heaven [DVD]  (DVD)
I watched this last night and found the whole thing totally unbelievable. Is this based on historical fact? I do hope not. I know war is a man's game to be taken slightly less seriously than cricket, but even taking that into consideration it was all a bit gung ho. Balian, Orlando Bloom's character, was like a wet week; were we supposed to be impressed that he didn't choose to avoid a blood bath, all because of his conscience. Ah, bless. I've given two stars because it was beautifully filmed and the soundtrack was very good. While I think of it: could Balian have returned home to his French village having killed the local priest? Peut-etre non!
