I'm a huge Orlando Bloom fan but I have to say I'm a little wary of his movie roles after Lord of the Rings. I actually think Johnny Depp saved him in the 'The Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl". However, when I watched 'The Kingdom of Heaven' on DVD last weekend, I thought Bloom delivered a solid performance and broke away from his comfort zone as a 'pretty boy' sterotype.

Ridley Scott's "Kingdom of Heaven" is a brilliant film set in Jerusalem during the time of the Crusades, a dark time in the history of Christianity, when fanatics killed needlessly in the name of Jesus Christ. While slow in it's buildup, the film features exciting battle sequences, amazing visual effects, and (Most important of all) great performances by a stellar cast. And it's fair depiction of both Christian and Muslim alike lends to it a cautionary tale about how we need to get along despite are differences, and that fanatics of all religions are dangerous people who need to be dealt with.

Overall, I enjoyed the moive and it'll definitely belongs on your must-see DVD list!
