Product Overview

Only in this exclusive 4 DVD set can fans take in the director's own version of the acclaimed film, as well as the unique, multi-part documentary that follows the epic from concept and design through production and on to its well-received release.

From Ridley Scott, the visionary director of Black Hawk Down and Gladiator, comes this spectacular epic of courage, honor and adventure. Orlando Bloom stars as Balian, a young Frenchman in Medieval Jerusalem during the Crusades, who, having lost everything, finds redemption in a heroic fight against overwhelming forces to save his people and fulfill his destiny as a knight.

ReviewSource James Berardinelli's ReelViews
Review Kingdom of Heaven remains a hugely enjoyable experience. The battle scenes, especially the 1187 siege of Jerusalem, are handled expertly. There's plenty of the same "wow!" factor that was evident in The Two Towers, when hundreds of thousands of orcs assaulted Helm's Deep. Scott keeps the action tightly concentrated on Balian, never losing focus the way Oliver Stone did in Alexander. Kingdom of Heaven runs nearly 2 1/2 hours, but is tautly paced so as to not seem nearly that long.

Review The first thing to be said for Ridley Scott's Kingdom of Heaven is that Scott knows how to direct a historical epic. I might have been kinder to his Gladiator had I known that Troy and Alexander were in my future, but Kingdom of Heaven is better than Gladiator -- deeper, more thoughtful, more about human motivation and less about action.

Review Kingdom of Heaven navigates through the minefield of the Crusades and, by extension, the contentious background of Christian-Muslim relations in ways both shrewd and calculated. Genuinely spectacular and historically quite respectable, Ridley Scott's latest epic is at its strongest in conveying the savagery spawned by fanaticism, as well as in creating a convincing view of a late 12th century when East and West co-existed, then came to blows for neither the first nor last time. Dramatically, however, there is a vaguely programmatic feel to the drastic upward mobility of a simple French blacksmith to the ruling echelon of the Latin Kingdom.
