The Passion of the Christ
By his wounds, we were healed.
"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.
The Jesus Christ Chainsaw Massacre.
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…
The Passion of the Christ is a very polarizing movie. On the one hand, you've got awesome technical aspects from the costumes to the acting to the direction and of course the use of original languages is so commendable. On the other hand, you have a movie that is realistic in its violence, but still too violent to the point of being exploitative. But the biggest problem is its hateful tone, a lack of a strong story and the movie's unwillingness to make a strong statement or to have anything truly spiritual in it as the movie about Jesus needs those things. So in the end, I respect it to some degree as it is authentic, but I also find it to be too problematic in too many areas.
Well done telling of the Crucifixion.
However Mel Gibson's directing gets heavy handed at times, to the point of being obnoxious. Though as a tear jerker for Christians that makes you want to go to a Pastor and confess everything, it accomplishes that in strides.
(Not sure which I'd rather give it.

¡Que pinche madriza más gráfica son los latigazos a Jesús en la versión Mel Gibson! :-/
Oookay. I'm not religious but I can appreciate the story of a good man sarificing himself for a greater good and refusing to damn those killing him, so no worries there, and both the Arabic dialogue an unflashy cast are appreciated. But this really feels like an edgy teenager's joke gone too far, the crucifixion rendered as mere torture porn, the gory centrepiece to some ridiculous violence and overdone side characters. It's only really offensive if you consider brutalising a character in order to manipulate the audience into empathising with him is offensive; so it did offend me, but then it probably would if some edgy maniac did a two-hour film of James Bond or Emmet Brickowski being tortured and killed.
So well done Mel, you squicked a load of people out with your gore and upset a bunch of others with your posturing and race hate. Well done, have a bun, you fucking muppet.
You think Jesus was into bootystuff?
So, does this movie make it out as if Jesus invented high tables? HAHAHAHA
NOTE: Will expand my review later on.
It took me a long while to decide whether to see The Passion of the Christ. It had been my intention to since Mel Gibson first announced the project, but endless reports of the film's unflinching brutality made me fear it might be too much to bear. I eventually decided, however, that whether I really wanted to or not, this was a film I needed to see. It took me two viewings to really get a grip on it, so intense were the emotions it provoked in me. Even now, weeks later, re-examining it in detail is still deeply affecting. For those few still unaware, the film details the last twelve hours in the life of Christ. Its dialogue is…
Mengadaptasi sebuah kitab suci menjadi sebuah film menjadi tantangan sendiri untuk banyak sutradara. Selain penggambarannya yang harus seakurat mungkin, pihak produksi juga harus menghadapi banyak pihak yang kemungkinan menolak keberadaan film tersebut. Tahun 2004, aktor dan sutradara kondang Mel Gibson merilis sebuah drama epik berdasarkan hari-hari terakhir Yesus sebelum disalib. Dengan sekian banyak kontroversi dan dukungan berdatangan, apakah Mel Gibson berhasil mengadaptasi cerita ini atau malah melempem? Harus saya akui, saya sendiri sebagai non-Nasrani juga tidak terlalu tahu akan keakuratan film ini, karena itu ulasan ini bersifat apa adanya.
Satu hal yang saya sadar dari film ini adalah, FILM INI SADIS. Bukan sadis ala film slasher, tapu begitu banyak adegan penyiksaan yang kemungkinan bisa membuat banyak penonton meringis (termasuk saya),…
Every film that has ever been nominated for an Academy Award in any category. Enjoy!
