Movie: Kingdom of Heaven

If you can get over the all-but-supernatural perfection of the main character, there is a lot to enjoy about this movie. At its best it’s a movie about the Crusades that’s not on a Crusade itself. The historical details are mashed up, but the setting and the major characters and events appear to be fairly accurate, at least according to the Wikipedia entry. Lastly, there is of course a bit too much time spent in battle and not enough on character development, but this weakness was not as pronounced as I expected.
