The Mel Gibson’s movie was first criticized by distractors and critics, painting it with a lot of dirty words. This is not the case with the Christian community and other right-minded people.
The whole film was done in the original Aramaic with English subtitles. Such makes the movie enjoyable by itself since it decorates it with emotions that the person watching will not avoid, hence getting more the subject. Since most people have an idea of what the movie is about, they will not get distracted reading the subtitles. 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.
The main things in the movie are the accounts of the New Testament Gospel that narrate the events that happened to the time Christ was crucified. It has been termed a must watch for all people by the most devoted Christians but minors should not watch the movie. Often in the film, passion is decorated with more violence, making the passion violent. It is crucial that children who are 16 and 17 years should get to know what the film entails before they can watch it.
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. In the shadows, is a satanic image that gives a lot of temptations and doubts. This figure says that no man can bear all the sins of the world, something that is impossible. When this fail to work, we see Judas coming and selling him to the Temple guards.
Jesus is chained and taken to the high priest to judge him. Jesus answers the questions of the leading priest and Pharisees and he told them that he is the promised Messiah. They hit him, mock him, spit on him etc. There being a judge call Pilate, they take him to him hoping that he was going to be killed there.
Pilate find Jesus innocent but still ordered him to be whipped. Lack of tenderness, total brutally begins here. This will continue and if you can make it through these scenes, crucifixion will not be much.
Mel Gibson’s use of flashback is creative and it takes the audience back to the life of Jesus as a kid. overall, the film is rank one of the greatest ever made. If you believe Jesus of Nazareth is the biblical Messiah, then the film narrates the enormity of God’s sacrifice.
