Ridley Scott was quite impressed by his strength. I wondered though how many clichés about Germans he consolidated... starting to fight first after being letally wounded.  :razz:

Thanks for the screenshots. I never noticed the Mac Bible cleaver or the Opsrey Saracen Faris warhammer.

Clichés?
This guy starts the fight after being hit.
A few hundreds years later the prussians shot before they asked and only a few years after that we thought we could still win even though the enemy was already at the gates.

I'm not saying it is a good thing or somehow clever but it is no cliché that's typical!  :cool:

Me neither. Sure they had two good researchers and some bad researchers, and they had to agree in these kind of things.

Good Researcher "In the Mac Bible there is this weapon, a cleaver"
Bad Researcher "I read somewhere in the Internet that Muslims used it, as well as they used these cool 18th Century helmets"

Some more pics, also with the cleaver and this hammer, this time in the hand of a templar ( :???: ):

I also found something interesting: a chain at the back of the great helmet of the third assassin knight (the guy with the morningstar). I never saw something like that, but I suppose it's meant for simply dropping the helmet off after the first clash with lances, to have the better overview of the sorroundings, fighting on with the mail coif or a small skull cap (correct name? German: "Beckenhaube")

the chain on the back  is from early 14th century,its connected with the belt and helmet preventing the helmet to get lost,so its ridiculous in the movie,also tha pig sound when the knight died was typical hollywood

I've heard a sound from starcraft (That sound that plays when you first click on the icon, and get the desk loader GUI) in a 7th grade nature documentary. :grin:

The helmet of the Black Saracen is great. It looks like a mix between a khula khud and a 15th century turban helmet.

I recommend that everyone, who has not yet done so, to get their hands on the director's cut (extended version - about 30 minutes longer).  It is almost like an all new movie and gives much more sense to the overall story.  Wont go into historical accuracy and so forth...

Right. I got some pictures of it, for example the few first shots in and around the castle, the last attacker in the French woods being executed by a warhammer, Balian sitting in the desert, the hospitaller standing behind him, the coronation of Sybilla's son, the final duel between Balian and Guy...

Still...anyone seen the Rome series? The characters stuck in their ancient ways of thinking are by no means as distant to us as the screenplay author of KoH said in his audio commentary. Arn the Templar wasn't exactly "hiostoric" in that respect either, so I'm still waiting to see a movie (especially about something as complex and misunderstood as the crusades) which pays attention to what the people actually did and thought. Apparently there's only The Name of the Rose.

You have a good point. I still have to find a film in which they show me the real thinking of the XII-XIIIth Century knights, a way of thinking that would appear both fantasious and romantic today, but that was very real.

I try to introduce all of these issues in the dialogues of our companions, though.

Not entirely. I was surprised about the "quality" of the scenes. I'm quite materialistic when it comes to this. I don't like Robin Hood, but I'd buy the DVD only to see those beautiful medieval hauberks and surcoats and castles...

It was not what I expected, but now that I know, I might watch it again with the proper perspective.

Hehe, sounds familiar to me (too bad I cannot enjoy HD movies yet). In Robin Hood they even had mail mittens, unlike in KoH, but after seeing the cleaver I'm not even sure there. Maybe in the next movie the Weta Workshop will offer those one-piece shirts with attatched coifs.... if they are cool enough.
