(action, drama, history, war)
Download Movie Kingdom of HeavenIt is the time of the Crusades during the Middle Ages - the world shaping 200-year collision between Europe and the East. A blacksmith named Balian has lost his family and nearly his faith. The religious wars raging in the far-off Holy Land seem remote to him, yet he is pulled into that immense drama. Amid the pageantry and intrigues of medieval Jerusalem he falls in love, grows into a leader, and ultimately uses all his courage and skill to defend the city against staggering odds. Destiny comes seeking Balian in the form of a great knight, Godfrey of Ibelin, a Crusader briefly home to France from fighting in the East. Revealing himself as Balian's father, Godfrey shows him the true meaning of knighthood and takes him on a journey across continents to the fabled Holy City. In Jerusalem at that moment--between the Second and Third Crusades--a fragile peace prevails, through the efforts of its enlightened Christian king, Baldwin IV, aided by his advisor Tiberias, and the military restraint of the legendary Muslim leader Saladin. But Baldwin's days are numbered, and strains of fanaticism, greed, and jealousy among the Crusaders threaten to shatter the truce. King Baldwin's vision of peace--a kingdom of heaven--is shared by a handful of knights, including Godfrey of Ibelin, who swear to uphold it with their lives and honor. As Godfrey passes his sword to his son, he also passes on that sacred oath: to protect the helpless, safeguard the peace, and work toward harmony between religions and cultures, so that a kingdom of heaven can flourish on earth. Balian takes the sword and steps into history.

"Why was the Crusader brave then the pirate? Because he fought,
not for himself but for the Red. What strength is that he met with a value
as reckless as his own? The strength of men who fought,
not for themselves but for Islam. Spain took from us, although we were
fighting for our own homes and homes, but when we, too, fought by the powerful idea that
, a Catholic Church, which swept back to Africa ".

Obviously, director Ridley Scott does not agree with this somewhat simplified
the philosophy expressed by Shaw through his character Don Juan.
In "Kingdom of Heaven", wars and battles are fed by an assortment of motivations
including land, money, political considerations,
natural desire of violence, lust for fame The love of ordinary people, among other
. More importantly, this "idea" thing does not preclude
leaders practise tolerance, reaching compromises and even
recognizing equality with alien religions, as the film tries to show us.

Recognizing that this movie is a mixture of historical facts and dramatized
fiction, I want to focus on one aspect of the much rarer
hero Balian (Orlando Bloom), a blacksmith and inherit a knight
estate of a father who appears out of the blues. As Balian takes over the barren desert
estate after the untimely death of newly discovered
father, he does something that it appears that the father was unable fazer in all these years - digging into the earth to find a
reliable source of water and proceed to make the mass production. Later, resisters
defending Jerusalem as largely due to Balian knowledge of the practice
laws of mechanics and their military capabilities. After all, he inherited
away from the gentleman and return to being a blacksmith
, taking with him a queen. The triumph of the working class, as my summary suggests

representation of the arch opponent Saladin remains much the line taken
in the novels of Sir Walter Scott (another Scott here!)
including "The Talismán" as a mysterious (
far is almost ubiquitous - in the novel), but wise and benevolent, one
breed of political leader who is, unfortunately, scarce today. The hero
Balian, as mentioned, has little interest in divinity and each
interest in the welfare of the people. These two leaders, put
in the current context, could qualify "Kingdom of Heaven" for a fairy tale.

It's hard not to compare the attack in Jerusalem with
the attack of Minas Tirith, and this comparison can be interpreted as a compliment
unreservedly in the Kingdom of Heaven. Another
comparison can be done is the representation of a powerful army, made
unimaginatively similar in two films last year. In the Kingdom of Heaven,
see first a solitary figure on horseback in a remote mountain lake.
"Saladin's army of 200 thousand is here," said Balian. "There is only one person
," comes the reply of a follower. "No, they're all here," Balian
quietly replies, at which point the camera angle
begins to rise, first to reveal the patch behind the mountain lagoon, filled with
soldiers. Then, as the horizon of our vision continues to expand,
layers of mountains and valleys continue to emerge, along with
Saladin's powerful army deployed in a seemingly disorganized, but ultimately
strategic fashion. This must be seen to appreciate.

of the cast, I must mention the first Edward Norton. As the leper King of Jerusalem
, appears all the time behind a mask that covers his entire face
, showing only their eyes with disfigured corners. But
is the voice that is so mesmerizing. From Fight Club, the voice of Norton
has a mild timbre that sounds like him, there is behind
tantalizing hints of subtlety, intrigue, compassion, power, and twenty other different
and conflicting emotions at once.

Bloom grows in his role, starting rather expressionless (
that can not be totally unreasonable given that the character
just lost a wife and one child), but little by little gain in confidence.
Liam Neeson and Jeremy Irons, playing father and mentor, respectively,
are not exactly the most difficult parts in his career. Eva Green
maintains the challenge girlish The Dreamer, but he added
maturity and charm to the role of Sibylla (portrayed as
the script, but not necessarily as recorded in history) . And there are
good old Brendan Gleeson, in the usual role of big bully fighter
he has perfected in Gangs of New York and Troy.

Kingdom of Heaven is a cut above Troy and Alexander last year.
In 1935, Cecil B. DeMille made his famous epic "crusade" to one of the
Hollywood backlots. What a change in
Ridley Scott film "Kingdom of Heaven" in 2005 with the technical wizardry of a new era!
Although not a perfect movie, is, however, skillfully prepared
and well worth the time of any movie-goer in our current problems with age.

Since the visual and technical standpoint, "Kingdom of Heaven"
masterful. The recreation of medieval France and the city of Jerusalem
were brilliant technical achievements. The French recalls the landscape
region around Clermont and medieval Vézelay, where Pope Urban and
Bernard of Clairvaux delivered his momentous calls to arms for
early Crusades. And in the recreation of Jerusalem, the artists film
really draws us in the twelfth century walled city, with roots in sacred
Judaism, Islam and Christianity. Much credit must go to
cinematographer John Mathieson, costume designer Janty Yates, and all
of film art directors. The film covers the events of that time
between the Second and Third Crusades, and the evocation of this era was
simply spectacular.

In the genre of epic film, the protagonist is crucial, as in the
unforgettable performances of "Lawrence of Arabia" (Peter O'Toole), < br> "Tess" (Nastassja Kinski), and "Bridge over the River Kwai" (
Alec Guinness). One weakness of the "Kingdom of Heaven" is leading artist
Orlando Bloom. While this fine young actor has screen presence, his
performance was weak and monochromatic. The Crusaders were driven
zeal, and Bloom's character Balian seems steeped in melancholy
following the death of his infant son and the subsequent suicide of his wife.
Bloom matter not evolve much, even when
to reach Jerusalem, he falls in love with the mysterious Sibylla. None
courtly love, nor the fire of faith can ignite a spark of passion or
change the expressionless, Emotionless face of Orlando Bloom. Since
Sibylla, Eva Green also seems out of place in this movie. The closest
prototype for its historic character was the formidable Eleanor of Aquitaine
, accompanied by her husband King Louis
in the Second Crusade, during which Eleanor had a stormy romance with his uncle
Raymond of Antioch. Eva Green's character seems more a young woman
del siglo XXI, as opposed to one twelfth.

Other performances were stronger, including those of
Liam Neeson as Balian's father, Jeremy Irons as Tiberias, and Edward Norton as King
. The actors actually resembles medieval knights. Norton's characterization of King
leprosy victims and forced to wear a mask
was one of the most sensitive character portraits from Ralph Fiennes
role as "The English Patient". Characterization of Norton
offers a look at the softer side of the great medieval knights,
as the legendary Richard the Lionheart, poet and troubador,
as well as a King. Ghassan Massoud also deserves praise for his portrayal of Saladin
not only as a brilliant general, but a figure of great dignity.

At a time when we are at war in the Middle East, and the script
dramatic impact of "Kingdom of God" were serious and worthy of serious reflection
for any movie-goer. I was especially impressed by the
theme of honor that ran through the film. The actions of the main character Balian
were guided by the honour. And the character of Saladin
was portrayed as a person of great moral rectitude. The Western
cultural heritage of chivalry, courtly love, honour and filtered
Europe through Islamic traditions, "Kingdom of Heaven" seems
recognize. There is a powerful moment in the movie where Saladin
discovers a small Christian cross that had overthrown. The
takes the time to pick up the fallen cross and set it aright.
In a film filled with special effects and spectacular scenes of siege warfare, which
moment of simplicity is the most significant and important to me.
