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.
