Today is Resurrection Day Sunday. I was almost nervous about writing a review for this infamous film. I decided it would be a good idea though because: 1) I’ve seen it twice, 2) it has notoriety, and 3) its controversial. Some readers may find my review of 3 out of 5 stars offensive, but there is a reason for the madness. My reasons are linked with points 1 and 3.

The first time I watched The Passion of the Christ was during its theatrical release. I saw this with a youth group and I didn’t speak for the rest of the night afterward. It was shocking to see the abuse Christ went through, but it’s important to note I didn’t become saved until a few years later while in College. This is important, because some have treated this as though “if___ watches this then they’ll want to be a Christian”. That idea isn’t completely accurate, because the movie doesn’t present the entire gospel message. If you’re going to show this movie to someone, be prepared to have a discussion afterwards in order to fill in the missing context for why this was an important event.

Ignoring common Atheist quips, there are two controversies worth noting: A) Director Mel Gibson’s recent behavior and B) catholic theology snuck into the movie. For A), I refuse to discredit this film solely due to Mel Gibson and his recent behavior, because of Romans 3:23 and many-many innovations would also have to be discredited including the computer you’re using to read this. Granted his recent behavior is questionable, but that is for God to decide upon ultimately. As for the catholic theology, I’m not sure if there were any other little nuggets, but I recognized the towel part and the demons torturing Judas into hanging himself appeared to be something catholic since those ‘events’ are not in the Bible. I will agree Modern Roman Catholicism is no longer the same as biblical Christianity, but this doesn’t disqualify this movie outright. I say this, because in my opinion no one will ever be able to reenact the Bible with complete accuracy. For an example, we won’t know the exact reason why Judas hanged himself. Some say Judas hanged himself because of demons apparently, but the more familiar and probably more accurate possibilities for him hanging himself could be either Judas was too ashamed of his sin or Judas was afraid of a possible backlash from an angry disciple.

Bunnies and “easter” eggs are not what make this holiday great nor are they Christian. In the grand scheme of it all, I felt the acting and the scenery were well done; though obviously graphic. I also feel seeing the abuse Jesus Christ went through could be beneficial, conditioned it isn’t one of the first things an unbeliever sees regarding something Christian based. Like I said earlier, a person ought to know the beginning of the gospel message first: we are sinners who are in need a savior.

When I first went to see Passion of the Christ, I stood on line for about a half an hour. I was amazed how many were wanting to see this film about Jesus. It was like seeing something unreal before my eye's, people hungry for something new in their lives. People needing a savior, a true hope.

The film is wonderful, miracles surrounded this movie as it was being made, Jim Caviezel surviving a direct lightning strike. I was listening to him talking about it on a Christian talk show, really amazing. God's hand was at work as the film was being made, no doubt about it.

I have heard many say 'I didn't like it because it was so violent' Well guess what, His final hours were violent. It's funny how so many don't mind watching the gore on CSI's, but this is too much for them. Strange inconsistency NO?

If your a Christian, or even if your not, rent or buy this film. You will be moved, you will be humbled. And yes you will cry. I didn't see a dry eye in the theater, including yours truly.

Next to Jesus Of Nazareth, this is the best film about Jesus Christ! Unlike Jesus Of Nazareth, this film does not include the whole life of Christ. This film is about the last 12 hours of the life of Jesus. This is the most powerful film about Christ I have ever seen! Moving scenes, lovely settings and a wonderful musical score makes this the perfect picture! Yes, this film is graphic because it shows what Christ endured for us...his death and resurrection! Kudos to Mel Gibson for not "watering down" or sugar coating anything about this film! For those who thought this film was too much...go back and re-read the Gospels! His death was not a pretty picture, it was gory and brutal...it had to be! He did it all for you and me and this film shows us a glimpse of what our dear Lord went through!

Praise Jesus!

My friend took me for this movie to a theater in the middle east in March 2004... I was a 22 year old hindu at the time... I cried like a baby throughout the movie... The Holy Spirit led me to a "born again" full gospel church in July, 2004... I entered the waters of baptism in October, 2004... and have been following the Lord ever since serving Him as His witness in the middle east... That night in the movie hall back in March 2004 was the turning point of my life...
