Great movie, VERY strong though...,
I went to see this movie with my girlfriend in the theaters as soon as it came out. This is not really a very religious movie, but rather describes the last 12 hours of Jesus before he was crucified. The content of the movie is very strong though. Throughout the whole movie, I was bothered by how many times Christ was punished...was just in about every other scene! I think, that the director(s) abused a little of the punishment, but that's my opinion. We didn't get to live those times to find out how it really was, but it was very hard, lots of punishment and suffering.
It shows clearly all the suffering Jesus went through, and how he stayed strong the whole way. Like another reviewer mentioned, the Satan character and deamons that haunt Judas were well done.
Overall, the movie is very good, with lots of strong & violent scenes and sad moments as well. Go watch it and/or buy it and renew your faith!
