Theatrical report

Kingdom of Heaven is not Gladiator. Unfortunately. Gladiator is the tale of a man of honour from whom everything is taken and then takes revenge. Kingdom of Heaven is the tale of a man of honour who lost everything and then starts a new life.

Orlando Bloom is a long-haired blacksmith of extraordinary talent who, although of lowly birth, goes on to save everyone from the bad guys with his amazing sword skills. If this sounds like Pirates of the Caribbean: curse of the black pearl then you're right. It does sound like Pirates of the Caribbean: curse of the black pearl, because it is.

In order to enjoy Kingdom of Heaven you have to flip off your Common Sense and let Ridley Scott take you for a ride on his sword and sandals roller coaster of honour, intrigue, action and repressed sexuality. See it for the popcorn value.
