To do a film review involving British director Ridley Scott one normally will always be pleased with the effort and in general this was the case here. He has come along way since his days as a TV commercial director. His most recent effort illustrates why he is currently the master of big budget CGI (Computer Generated Images) films. Five years ago he enthralled us with Gladiator and his talent for creating a hero in a period piece is evident once again. Set during the great crusades when religious wars were ruling the earth (not unlike today in some cases), we are taken on a journey where Orlando Bloom (lord of the rings trilogy) stars as "Balien of Ibelin", a blacksmith who finds himself learning the's List). When his father dies in the course of defending his son during battle, Bloom inherits a family reputation of responsibility and respect his father earned as a lord.
