Last night I watched Kingdom of Heaven and as much as I usually don’t dig war/bloody battle type movies, this one was great. Ridley Scott did an amazing job with what is based on the actual Siege of Jerusalem. It’s not historically accurate, but close enough. Orlando Bloom plays Balian of Ibelin, and he’s very convincing as the blacksmith turned murderer turned nobleman and hero. I’ve never seen Eva Green in anything before, but she was captivating as the exotic queen. The rest of the cast was wonderful and the scenes were epic and breathtaking.
I recommend this movie with all the Mad Cowness I can muster.
