Few movies face the mountian of expectations that Kingdom of Heaven does when it opens this weekend.
Kingdom of Heaven is another historic epic by director Ridley Scott who had much success with the release of Gladitor on the same weekend in 2000. Gladiator went on to both Critical acclaim and box office success something many of the most recent epic historical movies cannot claim.
The movie stars Orlando Bloom as a humble blacksmith turned knight during the beginning of the Second Crusade and the collapes of the Crusader state of Jersalem in late twelveth century.
While themovie has a stellar supporting cast (Liam Nesson, Edward Norton, Ulrich Thomsen, Jeremy Irons and Ghassen Massoud) the question being asked can Orlando Bloom be the strong enough in leading roll to bring success.
The movie is already a hit with a number of critics which build my expectations.
