Is this movie right for you?

This film is a perfect choice for those who have a passion for the English language and a love for adventure. If you enjoy movies that transport you to different eras, then ‘Kingdom of Heaven’ is a great pick. This movie provides a riveting experience. However, make sure you can set aside 3 hours to fully immerse yourself in it.

However, if you’re in the mood for a light and carefree comedy, ‘Kingdom of Heaven’ may not be your best option. Additionally, if you have limited free time, you might struggle to fully appreciate this film. It requires a few hours to soak in its atmospheric qualities. Therefore, you might want to consider another choice.

The story

This movie, set in the 1200s during the Crusades, is about the adventure of Balian, a blacksmith character played by Orlando Bloom, who ends up in Jerusalem. As he gets embroiled in the battle for the Holy City, he discovers his own destiny and the true meaning of honor.

The movie makers built three huge siege towers, 60-foot tall each, for the movie, using technology available back in the day. Each tower was really heavy, weighing 25 tons. For a scene where multiple towers crash down, they actually toppled one real tower on the film set and shot it from 11 different spots. Various footage of this single tower’s fall were edited together to create the illusion that many towers were falling, each in a different style and direction.
