This is a stunning masterpiece. Obviously it's not for kids, hopefully that goes without saying, but every adult should watch this film. It will astound you and stick with you for the rest of your life.
This movie is anti Protestant. And that is the truth. The proof? The passion of the Christ is in Aramaic, Hebrew, and 15th century Latin, the third being the language of the Spanish Inquisisition and Tomas deTorquemada. The priests were the ones to read the scriptures to the masses , instead of the masses reading the scriptures in their own dialect. And what's more the church-state integration of 15th century Spain. What else did Columbus leave Spain for India for, ( without the knowledge of terre incognito) There are critics, and there are critics. You have now heard the truth
This films shows to people what Jesus really suffer to save us. I think this is nothing what I watched from what Jesus really suffer those days for everyone even those they don't believe! You need to have this film at home. When saw it at cinema I couldn't stop crying even when finished was in my mind that Jesus suffer from us! You need to watch it to understand.
A powerfully moving, emotionally scarring & extremely harrowing portrait of the final hours of Jesus Christ's life, The Passion of the Christ is definitely not for the easily distressed. Counted amongst the most controversial works since its release, it is also one of the most graphically violent films ever made.The Passion of the Christ depicts the last 12 hours in the life of Jesus of Nazareth. The story begins with him being betrayed by one of his disciples that leads to his arrest, following which he's brought to trial where he's accused of blasphemy, and is eventually sentenced to death that's carried out by crucifixion.Directed by Mel Gibson, his creative eye for storytelling is no doubt impressive but the excessive barbarism on display here makes it an endlessly disturbing sit that's nearly impossible to forget. Leaving no stone unturned, Gibson delivers a biblical drama that isn't just brutal, merciless & unforgiving but also profoundly affecting.The storytelling is mostly through the visuals, and the decision to use era-specific, foreign languages instead of English gives the film an added sense of authenticity. Production design team puts up appropriate set pieces, bringing Jerusalem to life in splendid detail. And apart from its dialed-up cruelty & other little elements, it's quite faithful to its source of inspiration.Employing the camera in a controlled fashion, Cinematography makes effective use of slow-mo, close-ups & wisely chosen angles in order to provide maximum impact. Editing unfolds its 127 minutes runtime at a steady pace and though it's slow at first, it catches up real soon. And John Debney contributes with a fitting score that's able to evoke the right emotions.Coming to the performances, The Passion of the Christ features a fine cast in Jim Caviezel, Maia Morgenstern, Monica Bellucci, Hristo Zhivkov & others. Caviezel is thoroughly compelling in what's a physically demanding & emotionally draining input while Morgenstern is even better as Mary Magdalene, expressing the inner agony of a mother in a very precise & perceptible manner.On an overall scale, The Passion of the Christ is destined to polarise its audience but its visceral power & emotional impact cannot be denied. It's worth stressing again that this is going to be a very upsetting & distressing cinematic experience for every viewer, religious or not, and isn't recommended to those who are easily triggered. For me, The Passion of the Christ is one of the best films of its year and certainly one of Mel Gibson's finest. A unique & unforgettable experience.
