Editorial Reviews

In a time of brave knights, powerful queens and treacherous kings, Arn, a skilled swordsman, is sent to war as a Knight Templar, while Cecilia, the love of his life, is imprisoned in a convent.

Note:A good portion of the film is in Swedish (the scenes taking place in Sweden are in Swedish), but since this is a series about the Crusades, the filmmakers wanted characters to speak in their native tongues as well. So there are scenes in English, French and Arabic as well.There will be no individual language tracks on the disc, but rather one audio track that includes dialog in several different languages depending on the scene.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Real McCoy! June 4, 2012
Format:Blu-ray
At long last,after the travesty of the heavily edited 139 minute film,and the issue,in Europe at least,of the 'Extended Edition'200 minute version,we have the 265 minute TV series.
Having now had the opportunity to view the,region free,Blu-Ray 2 disc set,I have to say it has been well worth the wait.
The picture quality,despite the Aspect Ratio being altered from the original 2.35:1 to 1.78:1,and sound quality are excellent.
I don't propose to go into the plot details,as these will be well known from reviews on the earlier released disc.
The 265 minute series is divided into 6 episodes which are used to excellent effect to not only detail the logical progression of the lives of Arn,and Cecilia,but also provide depth to other strands of the storyline.
The extra run time provides greater depth to ancilliary characters,and to their portrayal by the uniformly excellent supporting cast.
Cecilia is played by Sofia Helin who is so superb as Saga Noren in the thoroughly recommended series 'Broen'('The Bridge').
Joakim Natterqvist is excellent as Arn.
The director,Peter Flinth is to be commended for this full length version which sustains the viewer's attention throughout.
All credit to the Cinematogapher,Eric Kress,to Tuomas Kantilinen for his original music score,and last,but not least,to Hans Gunnarsson for a really intelligent screenplay which does justice to the novels of Jan Guillou.
This full length version is definitely the one to buy,and is thoroughly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars I can't stop watching it! June 26, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Much better then the movie, glad I ran into this while I was scanning amazon. I saw the movie a year or so ago on Netflix, but it doesn't compare to the series and plan to order the books soon as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Arn: The Knight Templar June 14, 2012
Format:DVD
I had the unsubtitles Swedish releases, and the first American release- which I was disappointed in because the deletion of background material in the compilation.

This new release is AWESOME!!!!

A must have for Arn fans and those of Kingdom of Heaven!

Based on the well-written Crusades trilogy by Jan Guillou, a respected Swedish author and journalist, Arn, the Knight Templar focuses on the life and exploits of one Arn Magnusson, a Swedish nobleman born into the Folkung dynasty during the Crusading era. A tale of love and loss, betrayal, redemption, overwhelming triumph and utter defeat- I found myself unable to put these books down once I'd started reading. Mind you, the writing style and dialog can be a bit offputting until you take into account that the characters in the novels do not speak English as we know it, it isn't their first language and their habits and customs, while similar to most Europeans of the time- you get the impression that you've been given an insider's look into a culture much like our own once you get past all the trappings. I wonder if the author had a political message in mind when he wrote these books, but I digress.

The author obviously did his research with regard to arms, armor, accoutrements, tactics as well as the complicated political arena of the day- a lot of people will draw parallels between this film and Ridley Scott's Kingdom of Heaven although I must say, the attention to detail is what makes this the better movie. As is usually the case with a film adaptation of a series of books, you can't include everything- but the producers were savvy enough to not take out anything that would ruin the cohesive nature of the story. Keep in mind that I am writing about the Complete Series, not the chopped and formed version that came to the U.S. some years back- as with Kingdom of Heaven, the theatrical version was cut to conform to running time specs and as such, suffered greatly from the pieces that were lacking.

5.0 out of 5 stars What's a Sverker? Buy and you shall know. February 26, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Wow, what a great movie/series. Mini-series would seem to be the appropriate term. I can't believe I'd never heard of it before. Thank you Amazon for having such an extensive collection! Usually I just ignore their suggestions. Sure glad I didn't this time.

This little Scandanavian gem blew me away with its storyline, acting and cinematography. I love it when a movie is both entertaining and educational. After watching it I had to hit wikipedia and learn more about the subject matter because it was so interesting. Arn of course is a fictional character used to tell the story while actual history unfolds around him.

Anyway, the story begins in 12th century Sweden with our hero Arn as a boy. We see dynastic feuding between his clan (the Folkung) and the evil Sverkers amid the snowy Swedish landscape. We follow him as he learns both the spiritual and martial arts. He finds love, then has it taken from him. As penance he travels to the Holy Land where he becomes a respected and feared Knight Templar. He protects the pilgrims and fights the Arabs. Then he comes back home to fight injustice and reclaim his love.

This is obviously just a short summary that does no justice to the story. Its got everything: battles, love, loss, redemption and Swedish! Its such a fun language to listen to. Subtitles are provided for those of us who don't speak it. This was a big budget undertaking for the Swedish film industry, and I think it outdoes anything Hollywood has made for a long time in this genre. If you enjoy crusader/medieval films you will love this one, and will learn many things about this period of Swedish history(I know I did).

It was certainly a worthwhile addition to my movie library and would be to yours as well.
