Kingdom of Heaven (2005)
Kingdom of Heaven a brilliant movie, if the director's cut is seen
I give this movie a 10. I know a lot of us were underwhelmed and were expecting more from Ridley Scott (especially after his track record on epics), and were sadly disappointed with Kingdom of Heaven.
I was as well, until I picked up the four disc director's cut which is vastly superior to the theatrical pile of garbage we had to see. Things make more sense, and there is a greater depth given to Balian and Sybilla's character. I won't go into the spoilers, but its much more satisfying to watch.
If you are an epic lover, and a DVD collecting maniac, why haven't you gotten the director's cut yet? Ridley himself stated that this was the intended edition he wanted to show in theatres, but due to studio constraints, he had to drastically cut out a lot of the good parts. So go see the movie you were meant to see!
great movie, naysayers read on
First of all, this was an amazing film. It was a great story and all that, but there is plenty of that. What I really want to talk about is how this movie, since it is after all not based on Helen Kellers life (atleast legally not), but still it offends people. OK, am I missing something here? Who the heck really cares if it was a rip of x and y movie, and loosely based of x or y character. Quite simply, who the heck cares? I'm sorry, but I guess people are over-sensitive about this. Why can't people just take this as a tribute, or as its own story (just loosely based of someone's life). Why do, instead of calling the movie extremely melodramatic, people not call themselves melodramatic and over-reacting to this? Well, I won't bother to answer that, since I don't really say any problems with Bollywood trying to just tell a good story (inspired, copied, plagiarized, or not). It's nice to see Bollywood coming out with refreshing original movies (atleast when compared to Bollywood, because I'm sure some 48 year old obese man who has to take up celibacy will stroke his belly as he tries to give a witty and intelligent reply to my comment) So, quite simply, lay off. And as for Bollywood, this is an amazing movie. Definitely recommended to all Indian cinema goers.
