Roger Ebert called the movie "better than Gladiator -- deeper, more thoughtful, more about human motivation and less about action....The movie is above all about the personal codes of its heroes, both Christian and Muslim. They are men of honor. Gentlemen, we would say, if they were only a little gentle."
