Advocate (Baton Rouge, LA)

Once Liam Neeson's noble knight Godfrey exits, Orlando Bloom's lightweight Balian can't carry this message-heavy lecture.

... director Ridley Scott has proven once again that with a decent script the battle epic does have a place in modern times ...

I'm going medieval. As a leading man, Bloom is doomed.

Sean the Movie Guy

a film that tries to be something special, but ultimately fails because of an over-padded script and too many poorly-cast actors.

Movie Reviews in Croatian

A sanitized version that celebrates a surrender. Saladin never mentions Allah. It's not religion, but economy that drove 8 Crusades across two hundred years?

Hopelessly naive ... The final impression is that a few bad apples were all that prevented the Christians and Muslims from joining hands and participating in sing-alongs.

Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

The movie flirts with ideas and then runs away from them, so ultimately, it's not much more than a dishonest, spectacular bore.

When he's surrounded by his men of brawn and battle experience, does Bloom look like the guy they're going to follow?

Scott's visual style and knack for epic storytelling carries us through, and makes his latest work passable, if not memorable, oversized entertainment.

Journal and Courier (Lafayette, IN)

Kingdom of Heaven, at nearly 2 1/2 hours, fails to really hold your attention. You drift off at times, waiting for something to happen.

Looking Closer

Monahan ... gives us glimpses of ways in which Christ's teachings have been distorted, exploited, and misinterpreted. But the film's idea of a better way falls short.

It all sounds juicy, but Bloom is sadly not up to the task at hand.

It feels spectacularly empty.

Scott has certainly uncovered a fascinating era, but not necessarily the right hero to do it justice.

Even though it is a long film, it feels compact. The characters are well-defined. The action scenes are well-staged.

Bloom's listless performance dooms the film. Where is Russell Crowe when you need him?

Scott cares more about getting across an ideal of religious tolerance than recounting history - which is, in the long run, perfectly OK

Mixed Reviews

Ultimately, KINGDOM OF HEAVEN can't change actual history. So instead, everyone has to grow a conscience...even the Crusaders have to feel bad about the Crusading.
