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.
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.
Thank you Mel for going against the tide.
the best ever seen
shouldn't even be a star
I just watched this mnvie again. It is truly a fantastic movie. So hard to watch Jim Caviezel does a amazing job. I was in tears for much of it.
Absolutely amazing movie.
As bloody and boring as the bible itself. It's obvious people are voting for this because it's about jesus, not because it's a good movie. It's not. Jesus never existed, the Flying Spaghetti Monster does.
The most true portrayal of this man named Jesus Christ. He did live. He did die on the cross and He is a part of history! Even if you do not believe in him it was a wonderful and by all account's this is how he died in HISTORY.
this movie promotes antisemitism
The special effects were incredible and yet I know that Jesus' Crucifixition was NOT special effects, one can only imagine the torture Jesus suffered and yet, you seemed to portray that in a very profound way. Thank you, Mr. Gibson for creating an incredible movie for Good Friday. This is the only day I will watch this movie.
This was "crazy and super informative"
remeber when Jesus Christ Died on the cross he was thinking of YOU!! God Bless!
he did this for you!he really is loving
story line was kind of predictable... really no surprises or suspense.
love it what a good story line
this movie was in complete lack of entertainment the only people who like it are christians. it is horrible to wach, and borring
its da best movie eva
My favorite movie now and ever. Great acting, great script, great score, great directing.
COULDN'T WATCH IT...WHITE JESUS....AND THEY SAY IT'S SUPPOSED TO HISTORICALLY ACCURATE!
A very powerful film. The scourging of the pillar scene was so powerful and sad. The movie was very well done. 5/5
Preaching to the converted at its worst.Okay,Jesus suffered(if this is what you believe) for all of humanity but,do we really need to watch a two hour film of him being whipped and tortured?In reality a very boring film(I may incur the wrath of God for this),but, as a film, one star only.
how are you gonna say its a bad movie when Jesus is in the movie
it was terible it was basicly a guy being tortuerd for 2 hours two thumbs down
I absolutley loved Passion Of The Christ. This movie broke my heart and the music moved me. Some say that this movie was too violent and gorey, but the truth is, if you have read the Bible, it was not a pretty picture. Mel Gibson made the movie exactly as it was. Great, great job actors, actresses and Mel Gibson.
way too violent,specially the part where they were whipping our dear lord,a good movie,very graphic,people fainted in the theatre,cause it was so violent,our poor lord,what he had suffered,good movie!
Christians believe that Jesus was truly God AND truly man, but the torture in this film was simply too far-fetched to show forth a belief in the true HUMANITY of Jesus. Dr. Frederick Zugibe, a present-day expert on crucifixion, wrote to Gibson offering his expertise so that Gibson could get "right", but got no response. Too bad. Zugibe is a devout Catholic Christian, and he found the violence in this film utterly unrealistic. This is what made me sad: to see the humanity of my beloved Jesus re-cast as some weird form of "superhumanity." I was moved by many moments in the film, but it certainly is not "as it was." Gibson missed a rare o
I hateed it, too gorey!
great movie, probably excactly what happened very moved by it
One of the greatest films ever made but it should not be compared to other films because almost all of them are meant to be entertainment, whereas this is a devotional film with a strong artistic character. I mean that watching this film is more like praying the rosary than like relaxing in one`s spare time or taking interest in a new story. It is not the sort of film that anyone would watch while eating popcorn. For those who hate Christianity, simply don`t watch it.
The graphic stuff didn`t bother me at all, but I didn`t like the fact that there`s absolutely no storyline to the film. Nothing happens! A guy is crucified.. then it`s over? How about some context? Ever heard of a plot? A narrative? Anything? Yeah ok so this movie was obviously made for people who already know the story, but still. I know the story and I was bored to tears with this film. It`s basically just a way of making millions of dollars off of a religion and its followers.
Extreamly funny I find it rediculous that everybody liked it so much and I have read the bible too
too cristian for me
Great film Loved the story and the truth behind it.
great movie!!! a must see!!
yeah passion of the christ kicked serious but it was a real heart breacking movie tho really wel made
Awesome movie, but has some really graphic parts that make it realistic and disturbing. Great symbolism.
Moved me to cry like a baby. I havent cried in 15 years!
I loved it !! the best movie of all time and it should have won every award there is but of course since it was about Christ it was shunned what a surprise ! anyway The best!!!!!
Really good movie!
I thought it was great and it was very moving!
I remember seeing this in theatres and it was pretty dramatic. It`s hard to sit through it, but you know what? It SHOULD be hard to sit through it. Even though it`s subbed I had no problem with it, and neither should anyone that can read. Furthermore, this is NOT a movie meant to "force anyone into a religion" -- last time I checked, it`s your choice whether you want to see something like PotC. Your choice is there to commit or not to commit; watching a "religious" movie won`t make you religious. (So simple, yet so complex...) This movie is powerful, some people in the movie were crying and praying afterwards, and I`m sure a lot of people
I thought it was a very moving movie... i cried at some parts and was mad at others... I thought Mel Gibson did an awesome job.
Really good and really good explained about the death of Jesus. It`s a really good must-see. Also, very sad at some parts....it`s defintely a must-see to watch on Easter!!! Also, Mel Gibson did very very well directing for this movie!!!
The Pastor of my church was asked why Christ suffered so much. He said because our sin was so great. The Bible just says "Christ was scourged and was crucified for our sins". Mel Gibson researched what scourging actually was and reduced the last 12 hours of Christ`s suffering down to two hours. Mel said in an interview that the Holy Spirit prompted him to do this film. Mel responded and the film was a blockbuster. I guess it pays (in more than one way) to listen to God. Excellent film!
