The real story
8 March 2009 | by TBJCSKCNRRQTreviewsSee all my reviews

This is the second of the featurettes on the second disc of the 2-DVD Kingdom of Heaven set that last an hour with commercials, and about 40 minutes, 44 in this particular case, without. It is far superior to the other, and a much more interesting watch. Where that went over the weapons and such - which really ought to make for entertaining television - this retells the events, and this is actually a rather good listen. It consists of interviews(mainly with experts, though the director, Bloom and Green do get to weigh in some), drawings and the like, clips from the movie(in spades) and, finally, a little bit of real-life footage, obviously not captured during the period this is about. The editing is spot-on, almost without exception, and seldom flashy. The main complaint with it is all the reusing of material, the many images, moving or not, that are used at least twice. The pacing is relatively slow, which I'm not sure was the idea with it, going by the way it was put together. I can't quite put my finger on what keeps it from being faster. This is very fair, not taking sides. I recommend this to anyone who wants to know about medieval history, and/or those who wish to learn how accurate the film was. 7/10
