If you are a Christian, it is a biblical movie, if you are not, still a history lesson.

I really liked "risen". It seems to be a very accurate depiction of the Roman occupation of Judaea and Galilee. The Roman empire is rational, organized and pragmatic, but the locals are passionate, poor and sometimes fanatical.

We see the events written in the New Testament from the Roman point of view (with some of the Pharisee role too), until later both narratives merge. The movie brings some questionings ablut the possibilities that many miracles were fabricated, but still, the little movement of Yeshua (Jesus in Hebrew) followers start to rattle the foundations of the status quo.

The Jewish priests ally themselves with the polytheistic Romans in order to end the so called "cult", bjt in a world that offered very little material and emotional comforts, some hope that life after death will be better is a powerful source of converts.

It explains the beginning of a religion that shaped most of humanity, but it is not in a preaching tone. It justs states the facts.

It's About Time...

Hollywood, and other film makers, have always tried to paint stories about the Bible in a dramatic and often unreal way, (sometimes bordering on the ridiculous). This movie offers the plausibility of happenings going on behind the scenes of accounts in the Bible, with budget worthy realism and good acting, that has made many Christians say... "It's about time." I was skeptical going in, as I always am with all Biblical movies, but I was pleasantly surprised at the quality and performances of this film. Well Done!

This changes everything

The film centers on Clavius Aquila Valerius Niger (Joseph Fiennes), a fictional Roman Tribune who is tasked to find the missing body of Jesus He is assisted by Lucius (Tom Felton) who is less inspired by the discoveries. The film starts with the crucifixion and ends with Christ's ascension at Galilee. The production weaves information from the various Gospels while omitting other information such as the resurrection of the saints, perhaps wanting to avoid the criticisms that came with "Noah." I thought the film climaxed at an hour into the feature where our Roman bears witness to the doubting Thomas scene. I was not overwhelmed by the performances. Joseph Fiennes was rather bland and unemotional. He lacked character. Cliff Curtis who played Jesus or Yeshua was less than inspiring considering his role. He played a rather subdued messiah who just simply smiled a lot. Bartholomew (Stephen Hagan) was perhaps my favorite as he had personality, and acted euphoric.

In the film Pilate is concerned about some fictional upcoming visit by Emperor Tiberius. Tiberius never visited Judea, or had plans to do so. This aspect was poorly researched. Clavius finds the burial shroud of Jesus which displays the famous photographic NEGATIVE of the shroud, perhaps the biggest miracle of the film, as unintentional as it was. It was one of those "tells" that the film producers are more concerned about perception and making money than simple facts.

Symbolically Clavius represents the modern skeptic who must open his heart and be shown the way. This plays well with Christian audiences who will overlook mediocre performances and various English accents for the message.
