Synopsis


The Passion of The Christ
Mel Gibson's well-publicized production The Passion of the Christ concerns the last 12 hours in the life of Jesus of Nazareth. The dialogue is spoken in the ancient Aramaic language, along with Latin and Hebrew. In the Garden of Gethsemane near the Mount of Olives, Jesus (James Caviezel) is betrayed by Judas Iscariot (Luca Lionello). Jesus is condemned to death for blasphemy and brought before Pontius Pilate (Hristo Naumov Shopov), the Roman governor of Judea, for sentencing. The roaring crowd demand his death, so Pilate orders his crucifixion. Jesus is severely beaten and made to carry his cross up to Golgotha, the hill outside Jerusalem, where he is nailed to the cross. Romanian theatrical actress Maia Morgenstern plays Mary, Mother of God, and Italian superstar Monica Bellucci plays Mary Magdalene. Amid much controversy involving Gibson and various religious organizations, The Passion of the Christ received an international theatrical release in February of 2004. In March 2005, Gibson released an unrated version of the film, dubbed The Passion Recut, that eliminated five to six minutes of the more graphic scenes of flogging and crucifixion. ~ Andrea LeVasseur, Rovi

    I totally understand the controversy this movie brings, but here's the thing, when I saw this in the theaters it was packed with people. When the movie ended and everyone got in their cars to exit that parking garage I witnessed nothing but kindness. People weren't in a hurry to leave, but in a hurry to help a stranger by letting them go ahead of them. Car after car let another car go ahead of them. That just doesn't happen. Not a single car horn was honked. No profanity. Nothing. It felt like it was silent. It was strange. Yes, Mel Gibson made this. Yes, he's done and said horrible things. I don't know. I like this movie for that reason alone. For one moment, a bunch of strangers just wanted to be nice.

    Just watch the scenes that shows the sorrow and pain of Mother Mary, during the Passion of Christ and if you are human, you sure will cry. This is a great movie of all times, which excellently portrays the passion of Christ. Every single step of his journey to the cross is so painfully characterized in this movie so marvelously. This is a movie that every person, not only Christians, must watch. Be advised that most of the scenes during the journey to cross are not suitable for kids as there is much more violence that at some of the scenes even I closed my eyes ( I’m a 34, btw). The pain he suffered, the agony, the harassment… everything happens before your eyes. The cinematography is excellent, excellent acting and perfect direction. The editing is so marvelous that you don’t feel the switch from the passion to last supper and so on…

    No movie out there could ever show how much God loved us, to send his son to earth to forgive our sins. This movie would be close. It shows the son of man taking on the world of OUR SINS to be beaten, betrayed, mocked, scored, for every single person on the planet. Mel Gibson should have won an Academy Award for this movie. If you're wondering what Jesus did for you, for you to have everlasting life in him... watch this movie. Make sure you have tissue paper close to you.

    Great film of the depiction of what Jesus's last 12 hours of his life looked like. Wonderfully done but its a pretty rough film to get through when you see such violence taken to a whole another level on a human being. Its definitely not sugar coated like some of the tv versions of Jesus's last moments to his crucifixion. But its just a great film well done by Gibson which I'm not even the biggest fan of. I had this on DVD, but always wanted it to own on Bluray, and this version even includes the digital copy which is even better and for a low cost under $10 before Easter!

    This is another movie I had and it started playing blurred. I could not stand the thought of not having this movie, so I had to purchase it again. This moive is powerful. Everytime I watch this movie it makes me teary eyed and emotional. It reminds me of the sacrifice my Lord and Savior made for me and my sins. It reminds me of God of how much God loved me that He would send His only begotten Son for my sake. I say my sake because I take it personal and I know Jesus came for me and my sins. If you have forgotten just how bless you are... if you have forgotten how much Jesus loves you... watch the PASSION!

    Although there are scenes that are too graphic for young viewers this is one of the best movies I have ever seen concerning religion. The only drawback, if you can call it one, is the need to read the the english subtitles which to me makes me think I am missing some of the action. But after a couple of viewings you read the subtitles faster and see more of the actual movie. Highly recommend this film...if it's anywhere close to what actually happened then no-one can question Jesus was the son of God...no man could withstand that level of punishment,, yet alone carry a cross afterwards!

    I had seen this movie with its first run in theaters. I just purchased it in 2015 on Blu-Ray to watch on Easter weekend. It is a movie that is very realistic to "The Greatest Story Ever Told" based on biblical reference. This movie is epic and much more visually explicit especially when it comes to the events that slightly precede the crucifixion of Jesus and with it being recorded in the native language for that time with subtitles does give this movie a very real "feeling" of the environment of the day. Truly more of a movie for those who already believe than one for just entertainment.

    Important Film

    While difficult to watch, this an important film for every Christian to see. For non-Christians, it is important to to also study the earlier work of Chirst before viewing. This will help put the sacrifice shown in the film into context. Note: Extremely negative reviews are often posted by those who have not seen the film and object to honest portrayals of Christ regardless of the quality the production.
