An epic about Christian crusaders who happen to be liberal humanists willing to die for the sake of religious tolerance. That's just ... weird.
that is pretty offensive, why is that so hard to believe. I am unaware if the movie is historically accurate or not if not and it is fiction why can't it be about Christians doing the right thing. I have a feeling that you have a deep prejudice against Christianity.

Because this movie wants to portray Christianity in a more favorable light, than the basic historical truth that these religions are both pathetic enough to kill for land. If this was made in the Middle East, it would have shown the same favor, but toward Islam.- ''A goddly army giving there lives as to stop Christian mis-teatment of Muslims in the Holy Land, and restore religious tolerance.'' Would have been this Middle Eastern versions theme, with the Christians portrayed how they really were ( willing to kill only for there religions ownership of Jerusalem).- Then you (who's a Christian im assuming) would be offended, and very mad. The only difference is that this Middle Easterns version would be portraying the Christians as they really were, and changing the Muslim side to a more pleasing cause than they truly had.- While this ''Kingdom of Heaven'' version is the exact same, but reversed.-----If anyone was going to do a epic about the Crusades, then they should have done it right, and portrayed both correctly,(as morally wrong) (but of course it would be terrible. both sides in the wrong, (ie. No Heroes).... So there you have my friend, if you cant as easily accept a version with the other side portrayed in the right, and you portrayed in the wrong then your point about ''A fiction of Christians doing the right thing'' Is Invalid.

You sir should be burned at the stake, unlike today many ago entrusted upon their faith to answer such daily things, dignity, for hope and such.
Maybe you haven't learnt of the past, and how we were more human along time ago. They think of the same, as we no longer regard religion to answer the many questions. I'm pretty sure you don't respect the sacrafices made by all of the religions men/women who answered the call.
Without those events we probably still be in the same death-lock of a war

"You sir should be burned at the stake,"
"and how we were more human along time ago."
Looks like it.

haha, you hit the nail right on the head. I was thinking similar things as I watched.

What are you talking about? - The Templars who brutally murdered innocent Muslim nomads who were mostly civilians and not engaged in a military conflict? Because that didn't really seem tolerant. I guess some were humanistic having lived with Muslims their whole lives. But the douchebags who just got off the boat from France were all total a-holes....did you just forget about all those scenes? They were pretty important to the overall plot.
