"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…
guys too soon
i cant believe this movie doesnt have an oscar
Very good in my opinion. Yes there are some tiny inaccuracies and it is undeniably violent. But the acting, production, cinematography, and music are still great. And it is a good tragic story. Definitely doesn't deserve the hate it gets. though little did we know this wouldn't be the only controversy Mel Gibson would receive.
This movie is a Masterpiece.
Not having any opinion on the way Jews are protrayad in the film, I love this film for its use of graphic depictions of violence and brutality. To me it's beautiful. Additionally, I will never be more haunted by a being from a film than I am from the devil in this movie. It's the magnum opus of depictions of evil.
While it sometimes exaggerates the violence for the sake of violence, I still think The Passion of the Christ used its R rating to its advantage and was able to tell a powerful, important story through realistically brutal events that furthered the impact of the film.
For it's extreme graphic material.....although the bible is better. I still don't see anyone can one up this film in telling this story. In its Timex seeing such work being done it felt all too real. I've this film twice and that's all I can take of see Jesus being brutally damaged but it is his purpose. I don't know, you can't hold this film up for a bunch of aesthetics and etc..but this story isn't necessarily to be made into something beautiful.....Jesus suffered and that's all we need to see. Still a good film.
Most brutal horror film I've ever seen.
‘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.
