I enjoyed this movie. I really was interested in it visually and found Edward Norton's character captivating. He was a leper king who was yet firm and just. He was humble and did not abuse his power. There are couple more interesting characters in this movie. It wasn't a Braveheart or huge epic, but it was worth seeing. As for it's historical accuracy and religous message... yuk. It'll leave a bad taste in your mouth if that's important to you. I just loved it visually and dramatically. I felt like I could say that I have some idea of what an army of the crusade would have looked like. To me makes it worth it.
