    Been waiting for this movie since I first saw the previews in theatres. I saw it yesterday and wow, just an awesome movie. Ridley Scott takes Galdiator's raw and brutal fighting and combines it with an epic story in the Crusades and amazing cinematography. The film itself is beautiful. And the battle scenes are spectacular, from an ambush in the woods, to a duel in the desert over a horse, to a siege of Jerusalem, this movie will keep you edged. If you are a fan of Gladiator, this is your movie.

    didn't like the first 45 minutes, but after that it rocked



    ...and I didn't know that the leper king was Edward Norton. I was wondering who that was, I had a feeling it wasn't just some extra behind the mask

    He had a big role, but you can consider it as just a voice over

    Gladiator is definately my favorite movie of all time. Unfortunately, during Kingdom of Heaven, I was going on 3 hours of sleep and fell asleep during a slow part. I was asleep for about 15 minutes and after that I had trouble keeping up with the story.

    Anyways, the fight scenes were awesome. Liam Neeson and Brenden Gleeson put up spectacular performances as always.

    minor spoilers






    The first ten minutes was intro to Bloom's character. He's a blacksmith, his wife killed herself over the grief of their child's death. Enter Liam Nelson, tells BLoom that hes his father and he has come to ask forgiveness and wants him to come to Jerusalem with him. At first, Bloom, says no, then he decides Jerusalem is his best bet to repent his and his wife's sins (suicide). Then, ambush in the woods, etc.

    Just about all of the story is close to fact (the leper king, the shaky peace, etc), except Bailon, who was almost entirely fictional.

    Movie was probably the complete opposite compared to gladiator...


    It was slow; the story wasn't engaging (his wife dies then 4 minutes later he's boning the princess of a married man... :hsugh: ); the blood/fighting was certainly lacking.


    The parts up until the ambush on the woods was fun, but towards the end I was just begging for it to be over.


    Too many times was I like "ok sweet here comes a big battle" then they would just pan out or fade out and come back to it when it was all over.

    They cut out a huge battle scene and only showed the aftermath... pretty disappointing.
