Director Ridley Scott confronts hundreds of years of religious conflict in KINGDOM OF HEAVEN. An epic film set in Europe and the Middle East, the story follows one man's struggle to better himself and the world around him. Orlando Bloom stars as Balian, a French blacksmith who is mourning the deaths of his wife and baby when his estranged nobleman father (Liam Neeson) arrives and asks him to join the Crusades in Jerusalem. Mindful that conducting the Lord's work will help him atone for his sins, Balian agrees, and embarks on the perilous journey. Along the way, he reveals his gifts of inherent goodness and fair treatment of all human beings. Upon reaching Jerusalem, a city where his meagre beginnings no longer matter, Balian earns respect and fealty, while the evil Guy de Lusignan (Marton Csokas) looks down his aristocratic nose at the former labourer. As he did in GLADIATOR, Scott explores the theme of a man who chooses his fate, instead of accepting the fate given to him at birth. Balian comes to life in Jerusalem, protecting the weak and defenceless as his father told him he must, and catching the eye of the beautiful Princess Sibylla (Eva Green), unhappily married to de Lusignan. Scott paints a stirring portrait of the struggle over Jerusalem among Christians, Jews, and Muslims. In doing so, he also shows the passionate fight for religious freedom. KINGDOM OF HEAVEN ably handles these delicate issues, effectively treating characters from all factions as individuals and not as stereotypes. By placing a virtuous man at the centre of this conflict, Scott creates a powerful, universal story. This director's cut includes an extra 45 minutes not in the original film.

Ha ha, I thought the opposite! I didn't think Orlando Bloom was a strong enough character for his role.

Good price though

Dont bother with this Movie unless its the Directors Cut. The two are like Chalk and Cheese, I have never seen it so apparent in a Movie before. I hated the Standard version but really really enjoyed the Directors Cut. If this is the Standard then Cold from me as its sheite but if its the Directors Cut then Hot!

To be honest I didn't know there were 2 versions until I saw the Directors Cut on TV and thought...hang on a minute, I do not remember seeing all of these scenes in the DVD I borrowed! It did expand a lot more of the story and tied up some loose ends, even if most of it is fiction.
