I saw the movie with a few friends from church and, of course, from a religious point of view we were disappointed. The only good guys among the crusaders were people who didn't really believe in God. The bad guys were people who used the Christian religion for their purposes. The Muslims were all depicted favorably. Not that I have a problem with Muslims ever being depicted favorably, but there were no religious Christians who were good guys.
Something which struck me as odd was the complete absense of prayer among the Christian characters. The Muslims, more than once, were shown praying, but you never see a Christian praying, either privately or in a liturgical setting. In fact, I don't think they ever showed the inside of a church, much less a Christian service.
The opening scene sort of set the tone for the movie. It showed a priest stealing a cross from the neck of a dead woman whom he was going to bury. I knew right then the film was not going to be charitable toward Christians.
You would think that Hollywood would have caught on that the reason The Passion of the Chirst was such a big hit was because it was favorable toward the Christian religion. Christian bashing has gotten old. Been there, done that. I would imagine the atheists have even become tired of it by now.
I am no historical scholar when it comes to the Crusades, but even I was able to pick up on historical inaccuracies and omissions. For example, the only groups depicted in this film were Arab Muslims and European Christians. Orthodox Christians who were native to that part of the world were never shown or even mentioned.
