I actually sat for the entire movie...and didn't get bored. 0.0 Of course I did have PJ with me and played with him some. :P I admit that I watched most of the battle scenes by peeking over my pillow... :-P
It was a lot of fun and one of the few good movies I've seen in a long time. Dad had told me over and over...aaand over ( :P ) that it was an "Epic movie!". And I have to admit it really was. It was a pretty accurate film about the crusades, starring Orlando Bloom (one of my fav actors :D. ) The battle scenes were great...though bloody...and almost all of the acting was amazing...the story line was great and complex but not to the point that it gave you a headache. :P The aspect of the religion from back then was accurate for the most part from what I can tell and what I discussed with Dad.
The main issue that I had with the movie was that it showed the idea of a "universal god." in the sense that all gods are God. They came across as saying that Allah and Christ Jesus are both God for whoever chooses to believe in whichever they choose. I would have to watch the movie again to completely understand the circle of religion that they had going on, but there were some parts of it that were very good.
One of my favorite characters was actually the king who was a leper. He wasn't in the movie a ton...but the parts that he was in were amazing. His whole demeanor and his heart and love for the people more than for himself was amazing.
Anyways...I actually enjoyed the movie and would recommend it with some cautions attached.
And! It was a ton of fun to hang out with my epic bro. 8-)

|Ever notice how the warnings are on for too long, you can't fast forward them...but they aren't up long enough for you to actually read them? I noticed that. I did. Yes.|
|Poor Legolas. :'( Yes...of course...I was quoting Legolas at the most inopportune points of the movie. :P|
|And...we shall end with a picture I took of the movie.|
