Even with the addition of 45 minutes of new footage, Sir Ridley Scott's Kingdom of Heaven remains a rather uneventful epic with a story that fails to engage.

The dialogue by screenwriter William Monahan is so leaden with import that it comes off as the sort of silly grandstanding of a 1980s Mattel action-figure commercial.

In the tradition of Gladiator and Braveheart comes the latest Orlando Bloom epic. Yawn.

May 5, 2005
Ridley Scott returns to Gladiator-scale ambitions with a Crusades epic that's big but boring.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
May 5, 2005
This film needs a hero, and Bloom isn't him.
May 4, 2005
A film about holiness beset by a pedestrian spirit.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
May 6, 2005
A 12th-century epic that is long and wide but not very deep.
Full Review | Original Score: C+
May 11, 2005
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?

Ridley Scott's plaintive epic about the Crusades is an ostensibly fair-minded, even-handed account of one of the least fair-minded, even-handed chapters in human history.

This is the first time a "been there, done that" mood has permeated a Ridley Scott film.

If the intriguing but ultimately derivative Kingdom of Heaven had arrived before these recent period epics, it may have stood a better chance of enthralling us.

The movie is almost unwatchable as much of the explanatory scenes appear to have been left on the cutting room floor.

Cinema's least potent leading man, Orlando Bloom, stinks up the screen in Ridley Scott's unsatisfying "epic" about the Crusades...

Was Ridley Scott trying to make a medieval epic, or was he trying to remake Kevin Smith's Dogma?
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

Kingdom of Heaven has at its center a bold story, and yet it sits there like a stone pillar.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4

Just another sword and sandal epic...
