... an extraordinary work of art, a plea for religious tolerance that works because of sheer filmmaking prowess and good, old-fashioned storytelling. (Director's Cut)

One of the more violent films in recent memory. But maybe the violence serves a purpose-it keeps your mind off the inanities of the plot.

In the end, Bloom shows promise, Scott's work still impresses, and the epic film lives to fight another day.

Any film daring to touch upon the rivalry of the children of Abraham deserves to be appreciated for its candor & for its delicacy. Plus, come on, it's Ridley Scott.

dives into the middle of a political-religious morass and still manages to avoid any significant implications

Most of the actors have elected to play their knights like crotchety Western gunslingers, a bizarre choice that blows a good deal of fresh air into the stuffy pageantry.

So much attention has been spent on making a big, lavish piece of Oscar bait that the soul of the movie is completely ripped out.
