Awesome, but no Gladiator.
Kingdom of Heaven is a historical epic about the Siege of Jerusalem, starring Orlando Bloom, Eva Green, Liam Neeson and Edward Norton. I loved this movie. It gets a lot of hate, much of which is undeserved, and while the movie feels disjointed, and heavily cut and edited from the original movie, it is very entertaining and impressive. The final siege is awesome, and the crowd VFX for the Muslim Army is really good. The acting is pretty decent, even if there are no particular standouts.
Violence: 4/5 There is quite a lot of blood, and hundreds are killed. Characters are sliced, stabbed, killed by arrows, impaled, and decapitated. Even though it is bloody, it's not particularly gory, with the blood shown for only a second, before switching to another scene.
Sex: 1/5 2 characters kiss, and have sex off screen. A rape is implied, but not shown. Nothing else.
Language: 0/5 There are no swears, apart from "bastard", which is used in the literal term.
Positive Messages: 4/5 The movie's central theme is uniting Muslims and Christians together. Instead of one dominating Jerusalem over the other, they both co-exist peacefully. It shows kids that no matter what religion, race or political party someone is, they are still humans, just like you.
I loved the action set pieces, and the film as a whole is very good. While it wasn't as good as Gladiator, it is still really great. A-
