Most critics and distractors didn’t spare the Christian movie, the Passion of the Christ as they criticized it with a lot of words, terming it pornographic and full of arduous torture. As for the Christian community and many free thinkers, the movie deserves no criticism.
The whole film was done in the original Aramaic with English subtitles. That alone develops the film’s enjoyment and make the person emotional which will direct the mystery and sacredness to the subject. Many people are probably familiar with the story-line and hence reading the subtitles won’t distract you at all. On the contrary, you will keep paying more attention and the more you will do, the more you get to realize important unfolding turns on the movie.
This film combine the four accounts of the New Testament Gospels to develop the most vivid and powerful show of all the events that took place before and after the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. It has been termed a must watch for all people by the most devoted Christians but minors should not watch the movie. This is because the passion sometimes is violent in the film. Those who are 16 years old can watch the movie after they have understood what the movie is all about.
On the onset of the film, we meet Jesus Christ (James Caviezel) at the Gethsemane garden praying that His Father the King should take Him through the misfortunes about to face Him. There is a satanic figure lurking in the shadows, making the series of the temptations and doubts vivid. The satanic figure gives out a message that the thing about one man bearing the sin of the world is too much and impossible. When this fail to work, we see Judas coming and selling him to the Temple guards.
After he is capture, he is taken to face the high priest while in chains. The leading priests and teachers of the law keep asking him questions which he affirms that he is indeed the Son of God. This led to his mocking, hitting and spitting on him. There being a judge call Pilate, they take him to him hoping that he was going to be killed there.
Though Pilate finds no fault in him, he had him hit with a whip. This was an opening of a lack of empathy page, where Jesus is brutally beaten. All these happen until the crucifixion.
Flashback used in the movie is amazing, how Jesus was a toddler and all the happenings then. In general, the movies has been ranked one of the best films ever. If you believe Jesus of Nazareth is the biblical Messiah, then the film narrates the enormity of God’s sacrifice.
