Movie Reviews

Good introduction
I Teach Typing | Stanford, CA USA | 05/23/2010
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This documentary does a great job presenting the rise and fall of the Templar Knights. Everything from the theories of their origins, through their military role (especially their famous battles with Saladin), and their financial/banker roles are all nicely covered. Rumors and conspiracy theories are laid out but not presented as fact. The experts are not particularly exciting but they are not too dull. The problem with many history channel videos, with too much repetition following commercial breaks, is not at all bad with this one. So, if you want to learn about the Templar Knights, this is a good disk."
