Let me just say this before we start. I am a Christian. I have accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior and believe that he died for my sins. There. Now that we’ve got that out of the way, this movie was crap. My friend and I only stayed for a total of 30 minutes before giving up altogether. Although the movie started out well, the paraphrasing was bad, the acting was worse, and the accents? More like accidents. They would change their accident within a sentence, almost as if they hadn’t been given proper actor training. I found out moments before watching that it was Hispanic based (lots of Hispanic actors – no wonder I didn’t recognize anyone). Overall, especially if you’ve see Passion of the Christ, this movie is a poor remake.
If you haven’t seen any of the movies based on the Bible, this is still a great place to start. But as always, the book is better than the movie.
