Admittedly the storyline drags in the beginning. Personally, I feel that this movie would have had a much bigger impact on/for families, with a little less "action-packed" violence and sexual-innuendo throughout the movie.
This is probably why it was not rated; and ended up as a 2012 "lost Christian TV movie"---not readily available through Christian retailers/outlets. With that said:
Billy Zane was totally believable as Barabbas. Although a rogue character; Barabbas is intriguing and real when he asks all the really tough questions ---WHO, WHAT, WHERE, WHEN, WHY, HOW, and most importantly; WHAT'S IN IT FOR ME [eventually he finds the answer to all of these questions].
Anna Valle's character "Claudia" (as Pontius Pilate's wife) was also very intriguing (did she know Jesus personally?).
Although this movie is clearly not entirely factual; who can say for certain, that the real Barabbas mentioned in the Bible, was not used mightily in this way for God's purposes?
The ending was thrilling [I didn't see it coming] and easily believable---it made my heart "skip a beat"---it made me think about what is really important in this life, and beyond!
SEE IT; and tell your friends!!!
