There's one thing about "The Passion of Christ" that highlights its authenticity: No one remains neutral after seeing it. Most of the work seeks the genuine passion; some of it is interpretational; but all of it is intensely passionate. Mel Gibson didn't simply recreate the scenes well and give history its native tongue, he also presented intensity and humanness in a very real way. If we are to believe that there was a God-man who died a cruel death on all of our behalf, then that Emmanuel was made …

I had watched this movie on my own. Once it was out on DVD I immediately purchase it and after seeing it, it has touched me very deeply, I am also a Christian. Mel Gibson had done a marvelous job at showing the world what it would've been like for Jesus Christ the day he was crucified. Jesus Christ deserves respect and admiration for what he went through for what he believed in and Mel Gibson has done a fantastic job at showing people how it would've been like.   It's an incredible masterpiece …

I consider myself to be open-minded and a huge Mel Gibson fan. But, I was only able to make it through about 10 minutes of this movie before turning it off. Controversy is an undestatement about the story, the message, etc. The world has enough darkness. So, I'm going to stick with what I've been taught, and leave my images of God and Jesus in the precious state they are in my mind and heart.

"The Passion Of The Christ" is a violent film. I won't argue on that with anybody. It's too violent for young children(and some adults), but I suggest watching it with older kids(thirteen and up) because there is so much more here than beatings and blood. It's a true story about a man who died for the sins of the world. Whether or not you believe that Christ was the Savior, you'd be sick to not have any type of feelings for Him in this film. If you are a Christian, like myself, then you were probably …

Without getting into the historical and philosophical differences between the monotheistic religions and their denominations, understand that you will get out of this movie only what you put into it. In other words, if you consider yourself a Christian, you will most likely fit into the type of audience the movie was made for and targeted at. If you are not a Christian you will have the advantage to see the movie through a more critical lens as you will refuse to "suspend your disbelief."     Wh …

Based on all the hoopla, positive and negative, I went to this movie thinking I would be bored from knowing the story and disgusted by the violence. I was wrong! Not only does the Aramaic work well and convincing but also the story was "fresh" and exciting. Gibson does a super job of directing putting in some very scary scenes such as a snake that appears to come from a demon and having some children turn demonic and attack Judas.As Jesus is beaten by sadistic and unfeeling Romans, the populace …

First, a little perspective about the reviewer. I am not Catholic or Jewish, but a Christian and member of a mainstream denomination with an undergraduate degree in history and a professional postgraduate degree.  STYLE: I did not see this movie in a cinema, because I live in a small town without a decent cinema, and because I felt this subject made this film better suited to private viewing. Mel Gibson chose good actors and the film was well-filmed. However, its generally Italian cast …
