3.5 out of 10 Grim and good
Donal from Cork, 09 Aug 2007
This film didn't seem to get a lot of good press when it hit the cinema.........it's actually not a bad film at all though........it shows the crusades for the chaotic, propoganda-driven, misunderstood effort that it was.........people going to the other side of the continent believing that they are doing some good.......only to become disillusioned by the grim, greedy, corrupt reality that meets them..............Torres Crouch/Voronin/Kuyt Kewell/Babel Gerrard/Alonso Pennant/Benayoun Mascherano

4.5 out of 10 Excellent
Edward from Dublin, 23 May 2012
Thoroughly enjoyed this. Don't bother with the standard cut though, get hold of the director's extended version. It makes a lot more sense. There's about 45-60 mins cut out in the standard release. So, basically, you see a lot more Eva Green in the director's cut, which is no bad thing. If you're at all familiar with the history, this will probably irritate you a little, as Scott does play fast and loose with the facts and events, but it's still worth the watch.

2 out of 10 Lord of the Rings (dumbed down)
Seamus from Monaghan, 25 Sep 2010
Although this film won't change your life. It's not a bad hour and a half's entertainment. The problem is Orlando Bloom. I don't know how often during the fight scenes one of us commented that "he learned that from Aragon". And some of the dialogue seems to come straight out of the Lord of the Rings. "we'll make our stand here at Helm's deep...... I mean Jerusalem." It's not a bad film but I wouldn't go out in the rain to get it.

3.5 out of 10 Good period piece
Tracy from Dublin, 04 Mar 2009
I was watching this movie for the second time, and I enjoyed it more this time around. Picked up on a few things I didn't notice the first time. I think it is a pretty fair depiction of a micro-cosm in the grand sweep of the Crusades. Small wonder the Arab world has a bit of bias towards Europe. It's totally unbelievable that this simple blacksmith can be such a superb tactician but one just has to be 'willingly deceived'.

0.5 out of 10 Kingdom Of Heaven
James from Limerick, 31 Dec 2008
Another anti-war epic from Scott, this time set during the Crusades. Doing alright out of them, isnt he? Panders to the "all Muslims are good, all Christian Imperialists are evil" crowd. PC / revisionist balony. Dont bother. Oh, and Orlando Bloom could not act his way out of a room made of doors.

What's it about....
An epic film set in Europe and the Middle East, Kingdom Of Heaven follows one man's struggle to better himself and the world around him.

Mindful that conducting the Lord's work will help him atone for his sins, Balian agrees and embarks on the perilous journey. Along the...
