Amazing and Emotional Movie,
This review is from: Son of God (DVD)
I watched this movie and I had tears for the simplicity and spontaneous way the actor play the part of Jesus. That's how I think of Jesus, a wholeheart Master. I will get the Blue Ray as soon as it comes out. Emotions belongs to the Spirit. God Bless

Hello, I'm glad you enjoyed the movie.
Would you happen to know the reason Blue Ray has two disks and the original DVD has 1 disk? Thanks.

The real story of The Son of God as filmed in biblical times did not use the same compression technology as used today, however the Blue Ray version is an exact copy of the ancient original master that encompasses two disks because the original version contained 5.1 audio and the extended version that was favored by certain sects 2000 years ago.

I only wish the actor who played Jesus had a deeper, louder voice and was taller and muscular rather than having the appearance of a toothpick and a weak thin voice.
The actual Jesus was a carpenter which meant Jesus had to be tall and muscular. Only a tall and muscular man could have driven the money lenders from the temple with a whip. Since Jesus also preached the Sermon on the Mount, he had to have had a loud deep voice. I don't think many people would have heard him or would have been influenced by him if he had the weak thin voice this actor had.
In addition, think of how attractive he would have been in the movie AND in the series! He may have drawn more audiences.

I think Jesus could speak up over a crowd if he wanted to be heard. Considering all of the other things I know he did, raising the volume of his voice wouldn't be much of a miracle. I think they figured Jesus was between 5'8" and 5'9'' from the image measurements on the Shroud of Turin. I think making him out to be some kind of big, studly guy just for the "Hollywood" effect would have been a really horrible disservice to what turned out to be an incredibly wonderful film.

Spike, You are so right. The Rock should have played Jesus.
