A very powerful and moving film...excellent job.
I'm pretty much the same, I follow no religion and personally want to puke when someone wants to tell me the message of Jesus, but I thought it was a
very good film.
The thing was though that it lost it towards the end and I think Mel Gibson missed a great opportunity because the most powerful moments weren't the
torture scenes for me, but that one scene where Jesus is sharing a very happy moment with his mother whilst he's building furniture.
I was hoping for more moments like that, as it was so well acted, directed and so very human and made the enevitable torture even more unbearable
without actually needing to see it.
As I said I don't give two s@#ts about Jesus but from a dramatic point of view a scene like that actually made me give a s@#t about the character
and I thought it was very moving because it was so human and...normal, not portraying him as this Superman type guy.
