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…
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).
The only merit of this terrible film is Jim Caviezel's performance as Jesus. Other than that, this is one of the worst films I've ever seen. The overly excessive violence obscures whatever message Mel Gibson was attempting to deliver. Historical, or at least biblical, accuracy is tampered with to the point that the film's plot is unrecognisable in comparison to biblical accounts.

I Don't Like 2004's The Passion Of The Christ, I Don't Like It Because This Movie Made Ms. Van Ham Cry.
I guess if earnestness counts for something, than there is much to admire about Mel Gibson's retelling of Christ's final hours. It certainly is the story he wants to tell. But outside of that, this is a horrific little snuff film with no reason to exist except to incite our worst emotions.
I wanted to see what got the Rabbis all worked up. If they'd had any experience commuting by NYC subway (like the rest of us) they would know that when confronted with a crazy, racist, babbling idiot you just ignore him.
The one thing I liked about this movie is it revealed Mel Gibson to be exactly what I started to suspect when I saw his mullet in the 1st Lethal Weapon poster.
I'm not overly religious, but as far as I know, this seems to be a faithful and uncensored retelling of the most important story in the New Testament. And when I say "uncensored" I mean it; this film is pretty uncomfortable to watch in the majority of its scenes. I mean, if you believe in the Christian religion, Jesus suffered through all of this BS just because we have the potential to be and probably will be bad people.
Fortunately there are sparse flashbacks that give us a picture of what Jesus was actually like because 90% of the film is his crucifixion and the events leading directly up to it. There are scenes in which we see a completely…
no entiendo porque tardan tanto en lastimar a jesuchristo la verdad
es tremendamente aburrido y al estar en la sala de cine es complemente desesperante esparando ya que se muera christo para
ya poderte ir !!!puff que horror mejor la hubieran llamado los que lloran por christo!!!
I'll never understand what people see in this story.
If you are catholic maybe it will be nice to watch it.
I will always defend this as a tremendous work of devotional art. It has flaws, like an excess of slow motion, a little too much repetition (the three falls in the Stations of the Cross are hard enough to pull off in a film; why in the world are there six of them here?), and a weak score, but it's in the tradition of the world's greatest religious artwork in that it makes full use of its specific medium. This sort of intense and focused visual meditation is cinema at its most powerful.
