In Ridley Scott's Crusades epic, the war between Christians and Muslims surges forth with a boiling logistical fury, yet Scott is so busy balancing sympathies that you root for everyone on screen to rise up and defeat everyone else. Orlando Bloom doesn't look like he has combat (or much of anything) on his mind.
