  • 1 star "Blatantly antisemitic. But even if the hateful elements were removed it would still be a bad movie. Jesus's life is a story. The end of his life is not a story. This is a movie about a man's torture and death. That is not narrative."
  • 5 stars "Excellent! This movie was dramatic, and VERY deep. I advise anyone to watch this movie, if your Christian or of Catholic faith, it really makes you think twice about what Jesus has sacrificed for you."
  • 5 stars "Thank you Mel for going against the tide."
