Please take note that it is not a biased perspective. It is a cynical movie on the Crusades, portraying the greed and avarice that caused the Crusades, and the pretentious reasons (Christians and Muslims alike) for embarking on the Crusades and the Jihads that were launched in response to the Crusades. The setting of the movie is right before the thrid Crusdade, when Saladin retakes Jerusalem.

Excellent movie, I must say.

It is a good movie.. I saw it with a catholic friend.. and she didnt like it.. haha.. I could only wonder why, but perhaps it was because the Christians werent portrayed in the best of light.. though I think it was pretty accurate.. I have read extensivly on the crusades - its my favorite time Period! haha..  

But, like most other movies that DO NOT glorify Conflict.. it makes a person leaving the theater - hating war..
