one word ... Beautiful!
30 March 2014 | by nebur85See all my reviews

To be honest, I am a sucker when it comes to Historical movies & for me this movie is sheer brilliance.

I will not compare it to any other epic movies of the same genre like Kingdom of heaven or Troy because this one has a beauty of it's own.

Each & every Character had a great screen presence which really added value to the story & to the drama. Some of the scenes are spell binding & all credit must go to the director for choosing some breath taking shooting locations.

In conclusion, this one is for the keepers. Get to witness moments of lives of historical figures like Saladin, Arn; Crusades, Swedish & Danish battles. The scene with Arn & his horse is for me the best scene of the movie. Did i forget to mention about some romance .. oh yeah! ..this one is revolving around love. I won't add any spoilers as this movie is for grabs and talking about the plot is just not me.

PS: I am yet to see the first part..
