Why I recommend this — 3 years ago
I saw this movie originally on DVD in 2006, but I got the 2 disk edition so I could watch with my sons, and they were amazed at the realism and life of the crusaders (both good and bad) and especially the battle scenes.
The extras disk was very good showing all aspects of the production before, during, and even post production. Unlike Scott’s Gladiator which I thought was too heavily digitized, Kingdom of Heaven had massive sets built, even the siege towers were real which is all shown to you on the extras disk. The Pilgrams Guide is a running pop-up facts during the movie about the crusades and that era in time, but the big thing lacking was a directors commentary from Ridley Scott which I would have liked to hear.
