What Do Others Say




  • Historically Incorrect




* Bin Laden's version of History


Ridly Scott makes three bad movies for every good one


What Do I Say..


BORING


I dont know about the historical inaccuracy part. But if you plan to go for the movie coz this is from the Gladiator guy, you might have doubts about Gladiator too.


Whats This All About???


Balian- the blacksmith (Orlando Bloom) travels to Jerusalem (after murdering a priest) to join his Father,Godfrey (Liam Neelson) whome he has just discovered is his dad; to fight to defend Jerusalem from its muslim invaders so that he could wipe away the sins of his wife who would be sentanced by god to eternal hell because she committed suicide. Then the movie shows us,how Balian becomes an expert swordsman by undergoing a fast-track training (lasting for about 3 to 4 minutes) which ends with his father being hit by an arrow from the enemies. The story also shows how easily he becomes the leader of the defenders of Jerusalem and how he fights to defend the city from a hard, sensible and copassionate enemy - Saladin (Ghassan Massoud). Meantime, Balian manages to find his love interest -Sibylla (Eva Green) - who indeed is a beautiful lady. If you consider my review and writing style bad, then much worse is the movie. Reading my own review, I feel that I have written about some other movie.


Whats Bad...!!!


>If you have watched the trailers, then, you have watched ALL the action sequnces in the movie worth mentioning.


>> The movie is really choppy and most of the scenes are not corrilated.


>>> Leaves the fate of many charactors (like the new king - bad guy) to our imagination.


>>>>Refresh your history lessons from the nearest library (preferably a non-christian library). You might have to really do deep research to have an idea. >>>>>The movie is slow moving and the charactors do not come alive. Looks superficial.


>>>>>>A vey pathetic try is made to invole the audience emotionally to the charactors.


Whats Good???


> The sets are really awesome.they have created the city of Jerusalem realistically


>>The war scenes. If you let alone the choppy aspect of presentation, the feel is good. I have seen better ones though.


>>>Advanced historical researchers might find the movie worth watching once; to find the flaws.


Do I recommend It?


NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO


SOME INTERESTING TRIVIA


>Orlando bloom gained 20 pounds for this movie and even then, he looks rso fragile!! cant imagine him losing 20 pounds again.!!


>>All the charactors except Godfrey existed in real life.


>>>With the approval of King Mohammed VI of Morocco, the filmmakers hired 1500 Moroccan soldiers as extras.
