** TheKnightsTemplar were not any worse than any of the other soldiers that fought in the crusades, quite the opposite they were admired (and later, during their persecution in Europe, blamed) for being tolerant of Muslims and cultivating relationships with the Arab world, yet the film goes to a few lengths to demonize them.

* InstantExpert: Balian is somehow a master of commanding troops in defense against siege warfare, despite never having any formal training in how to do so.

* DespairEventHorizon: Balian is in this at the beginning, due to the death of his wife and still born child. By the end of the film, however, things look much brighter for him.

** As rotten as Guy tends to act, even he balks at Reynauld's refusal to leave well enough alone, as attacking the armed caravan would run the risk of endangering them to the noose....

* SacredHospitality: Saladin offers ice water to Guy as a gesture symbolizing that he is being placed under his protection and will not be killed. He very specifically does ''not'' offer the cup to Reynauld.

Added DiffLines:

* PoliticallyCorrectHistory: Despite it being a normal and unremarkable practice at the time, there are no slaves in the movie. Their existence is only mentioned once, when Balian declines to make a slave of a captive Imad. Even in major battles captives are killed or ransomed rather than enslaved, and nobody mentions it as a possible fate for Jerusalem's civilians.

Set in [[TheHighMiddleAges the Middle Ages]], our protagonist is a tormented blacksmith grieving after his wife's suicide. A baron from the holy lands rides by and asks him to go on [[TheCrusades a Crusade]]. He says no. Then, after being antagonized by a local priest whilst in the depths of his misery, he lashes out in rage and kills him, leaving him with the options of staying to face charges, or joining the baron to live in relative freedom.

* LargeHam: Brendan Gleeson has quite a few hammy moments of his own as Reynauld. Especially the scene [[spoiler: of him marching around his prison cell screaming his name at the top of his lungs]]. Marton Csokas, who played Guy de Lusignan, also seems to revel in his character's evilness from time to time.

* AintTooProudToBeg: When King Baldwin arrives at Kerak to punish Reynauld de Chatillon for his raiding of Saracen caravans, he first demands that Reynauld give him "The Kiss of Peace" on his leprous, sore-ridden hand. Reynauld grabs it without a moment's hesitation and gives it a sloppy kiss because he thinks it will get him out of trouble. Baldwin responds by smacking the crap out of Reynauld with a riding crop before condemning him to be executed.
