Another secular film about the Bible

I guess there is no plot spoiler. Jesus dies in the end. The script attempted to be historical as opposed to religious, taking a smidgeon more than a dramatic license. The attention to detail of the period and costuming seemed superb. I enjoyed the fact they did the Last Supper correctly, minus table and chairs. The film grossly downplayed the divinity of Jesus, turning this into another film about the Bible that is more secular than following the script. Three members of the supporting cast were excellent as expected: Kelsey Grammer briefly as King Herod; John Rhys-Davies as Annas and Rufus Sewell as Caiaphas.

Haaz Sleiman played a befuddled Jesus who had to be convinced of his divinity. His speech was slow, easy and broken, as I felt he was the guy from which I get my Slurpee. Many characters looked like they were from the region with sun aged skin.

The film was about the life of Jesus and only a small part dealt with his killing, a title O'Reilly seems to be stuck on for better or worse. He attempted to make the film seem historical, and for that he should have hung closer to the Gospel of Luke, in my opinion. He omitted the courtyard disturbance right before his arrest, which many historians consider significant, while he included the "slaughter of the innocents" an event historians doubt.

The role of Judas was confusing. Salome was interesting.

This is a good film about Jesus, if you can get past a Bart Ehrman Jesus. Not as bad as the recent "Noah" or "Exodus..."

Bogus

Mostly fiction, and poorly done. First of all, Jesus was not killed, He freely gave up His life. That is the belief if you're a Christian. If you're not Christian, or don't believe that, then why would you have a bit of concern if Christians do believe it? But this bogus book and movie is frankly quite poorly documented. We started to watch it and after less than 10 minutes turned it off. Uninspiring, and carries no spirit of truth. Not recommended.

Not at all scriptural... All human mind driven imaginative scenes and dialogues...

Most of the scenes and dialogues are not Biblical.They didn't portray Jesus as God or Son of God, The Messiah. And the guy who acts as Jesus seems to be surprised when miracles happen as if it wasn't Him who did that. Jesus is thoroughly depicted as just a man.He seems to be surprised when some events occur and is awestruck, which shouldn't be the case as He is an all knowing Son of God.The ones who make such movies should realize that people watch and get inspired by movies and these would snatch them away from truth. It's better you don't make such movies for money lest you be judged according to it on the final day. Repent and stop making movies just for money. May God forgive them.
