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…
Beautiful movie... perhaps not exactly the right words to describe this, uh, splatter film, and I can't say one ought to disregard the brutality to see its artistic merits. But let me just say that the picturesque cinematography and the emotional soundtrack won me over. Also the dead languages.
As someone who is not very religious, I found this film (and Jesus' story) to be immensely fascinating. The performances were excellent and the score was amazing, so it's a shame that they decided to spend so much time covering the crucifixion as opposed to the events leading up to it.
Cartoonishly bad. Lacks the context to make it a meaningful story, let alone a reflection on a significant religious figure. Verges on torture porn, but lacks entertainment value.
This movie looks great, the technical aspects are great too, I loved that Mel Gibson filmed the movie with the aramaic, hebrew and latin languages.
Jim Caviezel did a great job as Jesus Christ and pretty much the film isn't really bad.
The problem I've got with this movie is very simple: It was really necessary to show and watch almost 90 minutes of torture? 90 minutes watching how these roman soldiers beat the crap out of Jesus.
I sure as hell I think not.
I'm not really into torture porn.
The reminder that our daily suffering is bullshit when compared to what He has done for us. There is really no other explanation for it but...passion.
The use of Aramaic/Latin was easily the most impressive thing on display here. We need more movies written in dead languages.
That said, I otherwise wasn't impressed. Underneath all the blood and gore there's very little spiritual substance, and the film is unlikely to convert anyone who wasn't already a believer.
guys too soon
