This actually looks like a very cool movie... but of course, the crusades are my favorite time period... To study - research, and such... Wish I lived back in that timeperiod..

Things were so much simpler back then.. but of course this is hindsight

I've seen paper ads but have't seen a preview on tv yet. But the movie is on my list of things to watch.

I believe "Kingdom of Heaven" is due to be released May 6th.  I will have to wait until it comes out on DVD as I don't go to the movie theatre.

Does anyone know by who's "side" or which angle the movie is about (ie. the Christian view?, the Jewish view? the Muslim view? or a well balanced view of all sides???)

Peace, ummziba.

Doesn't sound all that religious, not like The Passion, Moses, etc.

Here is a trailer... you need quicktime to see it.. but yeah the movie does look good..

You see alot of crosses, so i'm guessing its form a christian Perspective.. I dont care.. its a Story.. everyone is going to have a view point.. but I garantee you .. somone on this forum is going to bring that issue up.... so I figured It might aswell be ME!.. So i can Finish it Right here... Thats right.. I THINK AHEAD!...

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..
