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...
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…
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…
I'm not sure why they spend the whole movie torturing the easter bunny... Seems a bit excessive.
La única película que conozco en el género Sacro-Gore.
Imaginemos que alguien no conoce la historia de Jesús , su muerte y resurrección. La película no se esfuerza por incluir narrativamente a "no iniciados" (je).
Supongo que alguien le encontrará encanto a ver cómo le ponen una infame putiza a su deidad favorita. Hay de todo en la viña del señor (je).
Il torture porn de La passione di Cristo crea grande empatia. Picchiato a sangue insieme agli ultimi Dio si riprende la sua ragion d'essere.
Eh, it does what it's supposed to do.
The single most pretentious film I have ever seen.
Devastating to watch. I wanted to stand up in the theatre and yell "Stop hitting him!" This film was a challenge to the prettied up depictions of Jesus' crucifixion. Folks, check your history. Scourgings and crucifixions were terrible, bloody, violent affairs. For those of us who believe, it was important to realize what it really was like for Jesus and what he went through for us.
Part of hoop-tober
Mel Gibson didn’t set out to make a horror film with Night of the Living Jews…I mean Jesus Chainsaw Massacre…I mean Nightmare on Dolorosa Street…I mean Big Trouble in Little Jerusalem…I mean Passion of the Christ…but it clearly is a film that’s intended to horrify and disgust audiences. From a purely secular perspective, this blood-soaked, 126-minute account of a man being slowly tortured to death IS a horror film (the highest grossing horror film of the century so far). It’s like a strange hybrid of Hostel, The Omen and The Passion of Joan of Arc.
Besides the obvious body-horror elements, Passion also has jump-scares, ravens that pluck out eyeballs, demons, maggots, and some of the most creepily…
Jesus H Christ. No Mas!
I remember when this came out my paternal grandparents forced my sister and I to watch this film with them. We were raised Jewish, and my paternal grandparents hated it so they tried to show us that this is the truth. Anyways, I was 8 at the time, and my grandmother told me this was all real, so it scared the fucking hell out of me. I'm not religious at all anymore, ever since I was about 13 I just lost all faith.
Anyways, onto the movie itself. From what I can remember, this was a horrible film. Mel Gibson probably just wanted to scare people into believing the bible. Also, Jim Caviezel as Jesus, REALLY? Obviously the only reason…
Probably will get alot of hate for this...
