Ok the general use of the Kettlehat by Infantry

Big trebs with wheels used by the Saracens

The Templars admitting a married man or a templar marrying a woman who by rights was an old hag and who was probabaly on cyprus

Theres my first three

BUT that said it was still a good film

But the templars did have married brothers - provided that said brother was not with her. When he died - most of the estate went to the order but they left her enough to be comfortable

Too many open faced helmets on knights.
Wrong design of swords - pommels/cross guards
Shoes
Armour
Gambesons
Knights riding in full armour while traversing Europe to go to a port of embarkation, while their armour would be on their pack horses (not seen in the film) and always riding their war horses.
Bored now and cant be bothered to type more.

It has that typical Ridley Scott ending..I cant explain it..its just..it...

It was just lame from start to end.
