45 minutes of flogging is a bit excessive.
WOW! A little gory, but extremely emotional. Bring kleenex!
It is a masterpiece. Really masterpiece. In my opinion, tt is one of the best movies made since the beginning of the movie-making history. It is not just an easy ordinary movie that we can watch and forget after some time, no, it`s message is very deep and touching. It leaves its trace in people`s hearts. It makes you feel the spiritual, emotional depth of the movie. Everything is transmitting the message of love and compassion - the art of actors` playing, the orchestra and the choir, stage effects, etc. Plus, Mel Gibson`s attempt to depict historical accuracy of the Gospel is really appreciated. And the Aramaic language is the powerful bon
Thought the book was better.
I am a devout Catholic. I beleive in everything Christian. However learning about "The Crucifixion" in school, I was too young to grasp the true meaning of of Christ`s sacrfice and suffering. At an Alpha meeting last year, the crucifiction was explained verbally. It surely opened my eyes of the true meaning and significance of that awful event. The movie took me further into the moment. It opened my heart and soul to the tragic suffering Our Lord made for us. To me, it is not a movie but a true to life documentary. Seeing His passion as it really happened. Thank you Mel and God bless you Frank Hayes
The Stations of the Cross were brought to life on screen. Before the movie, one could only imagine or meditate on how they unfolded. After seeing the movie, one phrase comes to mind "It is as it was". Truly a masterpiece, thank you Mel. Maria
a graet movie to make non-christians start thinking about god and a graet movie to make christians remember!
its amazing how people can`t tell difference between reality and a movie
But what if it is true? Makes you think about Jesus, what he said, what he did, and why he died. If it is not true...no problem but, if he really was who he says he was then we really need to consider some large life changing questions. A very thought provoking movie!
I thought it was like no other movie I have ever seen, very powerful. This is definitely something not meant to entertain, but rather stir us from within.
