Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Much better than I suspected!

I think Orlando Bloom is very intelligent and it shows here. He doesn't use his "beauty" to sell the movie (although, I can't deny, he's gorgeous) there are parts of this movie in which he's hiddeous and he must use his acting and intelligence to portray a man with a beautiful passion for all people.

Over 12/13 yes, but not 16

My son is 12 had to do a an essay and poster on Saladin for his History class. He read books and encyclopedias about Saladin and the crusades, but I let him watch this since it shows Saladin on "the other side". I thought it was a good movie. Violent, yes, but not too bad. My son has read and watched a lot of war books and movies because it is an interest, but for otehrs who haven't been exposed I can see where this film would be scary or too gory.

This title has:

Too much violence
