Editorial Reviews

Now, the larger-than-life story of The New Testament gets a larger-than life treatment in the stand-alone feature SON OF GOD. Told with the scope and scale of an action epic, the film features powerful performances, exotic locales, dazzling visual effects and a rich orchestral score from Oscar-winner Hans Zimmer. Portuguese actor Diogo Morgado portrays Jesus as the film spans from his humble birth through his teachings, crucifixion and ultimate resurrection. It marks the first motion picture about Jesus' life since Passion of the Christ, released ten years ago.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Son of Man and the 13 Disciples May 7, 2014
Format:DVD
When I first heard about the movie SON OF GOD, I didn't think it was a good idea. SON OF GOD is a movie that mostly contains re-edited scenes about Jesus from the 2013 miniseries THE BIBLE. There are some additional scenes in the movie, but the majority of it already appeared on television. I understand wanted to reach as large an audience as possible about the gospels (good news) of Jesus, but personally, it reeked a little too much like a money grab to me to simply re-edit television footage and add a few deleted scenes to make a movie that would be released in cinemas. However, I was willing to give the movie a chance and ended up seeing it in theatres twice.

The movie begins with the apostle John, brother of James, on the island of Patmos. John begins to tell about Jesus in the form of a voice over, "In the beginning there was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God." The short intro takes the viewer through the creation of the world, the destruction of the Earth through flooding, and other events until the birth of Jesus. Then the movie quickly skips over a lifetime.

When we next see Jesus, he is walking towards the shore (from out of the wilderness and the temptation with Satan it is to be assumed) and begins gathering disciples and followers and soon he has a core group of thirteen (that's right, thirteen; more on that later) disciples that travel with him as he goes about teaching, preaching, performing miracles, and seeming to ridicule the Pharisees who question him.

Meanwhile, in Jerusalem word is brought to the high priest of the Jews, Caiaphas, of this man named Jesus. At first he doesn't think much of it and with the arrival of Pontius Pilate to the city, Caiaphas has more important matters at hand.

5.0 out of 5 stars The greatest story ever told June 15, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Son of God depicts the the greatest story ever told, the birth, death and resurrection of Jesus, the son of God. If you are a Christian, you will be moved by the movie's re-enactment as the actors and settings will take you back to when our Savior walked the Earth, and how Jesus died so we may have eternal life. If you do not believe in Jesus as your personal savior, perhaps this movie will touch your heart and allow you to accept Him into your life.

The movie's actors and settings are beautifully done making this movie a visual treat. The story is simply told allowing the true magnificence of truth to shine brightly.

Finally, read John 3:16 to learn about how you can have eternal life and enter paradise as depicted in Son of God.

Recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Powerful May 29, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
For some, the first hour or so will come off as very preachy and bible quoting. And.. it is. But, the second half is so powerful and moving that it will strike an emotional chord with even the most agnostic viewer. Just really intense.

5.0 out of 5 stars GREATEST STORY SIMPLY TOLD April 24, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Although this was taken from The Bible Miniseries which aired last year on the History Channel, this does very well as a stand
alone production. It's simple and straight forward .Some may quibble that it jumps from one scene to the next and doesn't spend enough time fleshing out details. For example in the raising of Lazarus, viewers should have been introduced to Mary, Martha and Lazarus prior to his death. Showed no connection to Jesus and the 12. Actual raising didn't have the impact it should have had.All in all Diogo Morgodo was an inspiring, compassionate Jesus and the rest of the cast did quite well. I think this will become an annual Easter classic.

1.0 out of 5 stars Read The "Book"! It Is So Much Better! July 4, 2014
Format:DVD
The film did well in two areas. As a whole, the cinematography wasn't bad. Also, they were true to the accounts of Jesus in that they portrayed His death, resurrection, ascension, that He was the Son of God, and that He is the only way to God.

That being said, the film poorly portrayed the Gospel accounts. I realize a little creative license has to be taken in some situations. But the film went off the charts in creative license. If you are closely familiar with the accounts in the Bible, you will notice that over and over again, the film changes what actually happened (like Jesus going into the tomb to resurrect Lazarus instead of simply praying outside the tomb).

But the place where the film erred the most was in their actual portrayal of Jesus Himself. He comes across as a celebrity Jesus, instead of a humble servant. His facial expressions, personality, the way He talks, even the way He walks, all come across as some kind of charming hero. They also seem to present Him as someone caught up in "The Cause". Here's what I mean. A frequent trap for those in any kind of Christian ministry is to fall into a hero mentality - "The Cause". They are so busy doing things, even things done in the name of God, that they forget to take the time to really care for and love those right beside them. (Why do you think so many pastor and missionary children have ended up such a mess?) Sadly, by portraying Jesus as someone for "The Cause", they misrepresent Him as the one Who really loved and cared for others. One of the examples from the film was when Jesus calls Peter after the catch of fish. He does tell him that He will give him "a chance to change your life.
