This picture did what it was intended to do.

A lot of critics I have heard disliked or even dismissed this movie. They seemed to think that the movie should have focused on Christ's ministry and his teachings, and not on the crucifixion and the events leading up to it. These critics miss the point of this movie. As with all movies, The Passion was directed at a target audience, in this case Christians. The point of the movie was simply this: to make Christians understand, in a visceral way, what they knew intellectually from reading the bible: that Christ endured a horrible and brutal death in order to save us from our sins. It was completely successful in this, and was, perhaps, the most powerful movie I have ever seen.

Lifetime achievement in Cinema

Outstanding cinematography, powerful storytelling and the most important of all, the script is closely accurate to the biblical story. Darren Aronofsky's Noah and Ridley Scott's Exodus, both movies failed because they had no biblical accuracy. No doubt, Mel Gibson made a lifetime achievement in Cinema with this film ... Even if you watch it only once in your life... it is a must see.

I was blown away, best picture from 2000 on for sure.

I must conclude that the 7.2 rating for this movie as i am writing this is mostly due to people upset with Mel Gibson himself. The film as far as films go is a masterpiece. Truly amazing! That is saying a lot since I think most films of the past 20 years are awful. The budget for this picture was 30 million and it earned 620-700 million just in box office sales. There is a reason for that, the movie is great. If you are not religiously bound or simply anti-Gibson then you are in for a treat. 10+ stars!!
