All of this is presented by way of techniques that will be recognizable to History Channel buffs. They include modern-day historians, who re-trace the routes of the crusaders and examine the ancient sites where the action took place, as well as actors who portray characters of the time (chroniclers, knights, and others); numerous re-enactments, aided by excellent cinematography and skillful use of CGI (whereby a few dozen extras could be made to look like many thousands), vividly illustrate the battles and other events that took place during this roughly 200-year period. It's an absorbing, enlightening look at events that prove one thing above all: the more things change, the more they stay the same. --Sam Graham

The only thing that sucks about live action fighting is the fact that you can tell that they aren't trying to hit each other.
Well presented from both the Moslem and Christian views, it cuts across the historical aspect very fairly from both sides.
Extremely well done. From the narratives, to the costumes and cinematography, this is hands down the best DVD of my collection. Read morePublished 1 month ago by ssPHOENIXss
