"The Passion of the Christ" is a film about the last 12 hours in the life of Jesus. Director Mel Gibson received much criticism from critics and audiences for his explicit depiction of and focus on violence and on christs suffering, especially on the part of the jewish community. The films languages are Arabic, Latin and Hebrew and its actors are laymen which was controversially received as well.

Not as good as the book...
how has alejandro gonzález iñárritu not remade this yet
The Passion of the Christ was always bound to be a project to divide audiences and despite being an atheist myself I was actually fairly interested in the idea of the film, considering I thoroughly enjoy and connect to stories that thematically relate to faith. I do not want to go into the religious aspect behind Mel Gibson's directorial debut as it's frankly lost on me, but the huge problem I have with it is that I don't for a second believe in its intentions. Judged purely as a movie I think it doesn't succeed and in many ways downright fails miserably. Describing the last days and primarily focusing on the torture and execution of Jesus Christ it is a…
Forgive them, Father. They know not what they do.
This film has been hanging over my head for the longest time. I've always had a desire to see it, just to see how violent it really does get. I wish I could go back in time and strangle that little jerk who put that thought into my head. Or just slap Mel Gibson for making this film (and some other things). It's not the many biblical inconsistencies that really even bother me about the film. Sure, I can forget that Simon was more willing to carry Jesus' cross than this film says. Sure, I can forget the gratuitous use of slow motion. What I can't forgive, is the constant unflinching…
Mel Gibson’s adaptation of the spiciest chapter in the popular novel entitled ‘The Holy Bible’ made somewhat of a buzz a decade ago. I am not much of a reader myself and have as such only read bits and pieces of it, but judging from what I’ve just seen I think his take was quite faithful (pun intended) to the source material. Okay joking aside, I hope I didn’t insult anybody with this jokey opener, but if so forgive me for trying to lighten the mood a little after what must be one of the most horrific films that I ever endured. I respect Mel Gibson as a film-maker; his vision is grand and his productions are epic. Just like…
‘Passion of the Christ’ is a 2004 film directed by Mel Gibson and tells the story of Jesus of Nazareth. The story revolves around the last 12 hours of the life of Jesus Christ before being put to death by crucifixion. A very controversial story to be told but it does make for a good film watching experience.
The story and writers leave nothing to the imagination in the area of violence, brutality and the cruelty of men. We see Jesus go through the whipping and the crucifixion in extreme and at times hard to watch realism. The story holds nothing back in result to realism and the accuracy of what Jesus went through. However no movie is without flaws,…
I can't say that I liked the movie. I think it's overplayed and could be made just so much better.
Can be a little "hard" to watch with the "authentic" lingo. But well worth it. The "whipping" of Jesus will forever be imbedded in your consciousness!! (not a bad thing tho).
An extreamly well made film
Good job Mel!
An amazing well way to tell the story of Christ
I love Braveheart and Apocalypto. I liked The Passion of the Christ. However it's also an underwhelming experience. Mel Gibson shows us a two hour long high-end blood festival with Jesus in the main role, but unfortunately Mel has gone a lot of sweat and tears to make movie that doesn't say much of anything new. Although it's better than the book.....I guess.
I actually love this film. LOL
I'm not a catholic but I have a lot of respect for the image of Jesus, even if this is not his real image. I Also think it's very well executed
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
This movie is not your safe space. Check yourself beforehand.
Mel Gibson's visionary prowess is second to none.
If you weren't a believer in Jesus after having watched this movie you are most assuredly going to hell.
