Goofs

Arn's trial by the archbishop is highly anachronistic in many ways. First, the church did not have any say in matters of marriage at the time the events are supposed to happen. Such were a completely private matter between the families involved until at least early renaissance. A daughter becoming pregnant outside of marriage would be the subject of her father's wrath rather than that of the church. Second, a bishop passing sentence like that would be a political matter which would not go without debate as to whether it was under the jurisdiction of the church at all. Being a noble, Arn would be the subject of judgment by peers. Third, the sentence in itself is absurd, as the knights templar were not in any way under the command of the church (nor was its members subject to mundane law). The organization was not aimed at harboring a condemned criminal, on the contrary, joining the order would require donations, arms, servants and the trust of its other members (and a solemn ceremony and vow). Fourth, the cloister where Cecilia is ushered to has a lot more in common with 20th century orphanages than with any medieval monastery. Sending a girl into a monastic order would be the decision of the family, not a sentence made by a bishop. Fifth, with most of the members of monastic orders being either people joining voluntarily out of a spiritual call or nobles sent there by their family for education, physical punishment would not be issued as depicted.

Loved it - let down by small mistakes - but watch the movie
28 November 2008 | by vanhelsing19See all my reviews

OK so I read the reviews and decided to have a look at it myself. As opposed to going into a long and probably boring review:)

For

lovely scenery believable acting good music good values (rare these days)

Against

Suffered from it being too short (should have been an epic and used the other 30mins) Not enough budget (battle scenes fairly poor) Wandered a little at times

At that said - great movie - lovely to see the templars getting a reasonable treatment as they're easy targets some times:)

Go watch it and see for yourself
