The film focuses on the last 12 hours of Jesus' life and begins in the Garden of Olives where Jesus has gone to pray after the Last Supper. Betrayed by Judas, He is then arrested and taken within the walss of Jerusalem where the leaders confront Jesus and his trial results in condemnation to dedeath.
By including no supplemental features (not even the theatrical trailer), The Passion of the Christ maximizes its disc space to create one of the best-looking and best-sounding DVDs available. The picture and colors are sharp and vivid, and the soundtrack is powerful and envelops the viewer with surround effects. The original Aramaic, Latin, and Hebrew language track is available in DTS and Dolby 5.1, and there's also an audio-described track for the visually impaired (in which a narrator recounts the on-screen action in English). Subtitle options are English, English for the hearing impaired (which in addition to the dialogue describes sound effects such as "[yelling]"), and Spanish. --David Horiuchi

A lot has been written concerning the anti-semitism this movie conveys, and I'd strongly recommend that you see the movie and reserve your opinions on that until you've actually seen the movie. I don't really blame the Jews for the crucifiction, and I think Gibson utilizes the mob as a tool of Satan, and that really shows in the movie. Also, the gore is definitely present, and you should not see this if you have a weak stomach. However, it is dispersed throughout the movie, and after that first horrible whipping, you don't notice it as much. I definitely think that everyone should see this once. I don't think it has much repeat viewing value, as I was thoroughly impressed with it, but like a Schindler's List, have no desire to see it again.
But definitely worth the price of admission. Definitely.
This movie, for me, was the most accurate portrayal of both the Authority and suffering of Christ. Nowhere in the New Testament will one find Christ being anything less than absolutely in charge. He knew exactly what was coming at all times, and from the very beginning knew that He would die, and in what manner. Imagine knowing you would die a horrible, excruciating death; for years, maybe decades. He knew all the references about Himself in the Scriptures. What kind of burden would that be on your mind, your emotions, maybe even your body? And even knowing "The Hour", as Jesus Christ said.
The moment when it all begins, when He begins to suffer and be extremely sorrowful, is where the movie begins: The Garden of Gethsemane. You all have probably heard the accounts of Christ's Passion, so you know where Christ's Passion leads the Savior to.
I can't say enough about this movie. It would literally take me hours.
This movie changed my life. It made weep deeply the first and second time I watched it, both for Jesus, and His Mother Mary. It filled me with tears to see Mary seeing Her Divine Son being obliterated. Any parent can feel that, if you've had children, just on a human level. Not to mentioned that She knew Jesus better than anyone. She was His Mom! She was there at every important event of His Life, not to mention the fact that She lived with Him everyday. Changed His diapers. Fed Him at Her Breast. Taught Him. Watched Him. Who knows the Nature of God better than Her? She lived with and watched Him and "Pondered/kept all these things in Her Heart". She was there when he was Crucified. She was there when He appeared to the Apostles after His Resurrection. She was there when the Holy Spirit descended, as Christ promised. She was there and was instrumental in moving Christ to perform His first miracle at Cana.
As to the brutal death and violence, that didn't bother me at all. Anyone think the Romans liked to perform nice tidy torture and deaths? Crucifixion was for insurrectionists! To make an example of them! Many victims died of the scourging, and never made it to the crucifixion. I feel like finally someone showed it how it really was, or as best as we can know. Thank God for the Miracle of this movie even being made at all in today's Anti-Christian geopolitical spirit of the air.
Much props and gratitude to Mel Gibson. Thank you, Jim, all the cast and crew and producers for the Miracle. It changed my life and brought me eternally closer to Jesus Christ and His Mother Mary.
Jesus the Bread of Life John 6:27-29
"26Jesus answered them and said, "Truly, truly, I say to you, you seek Me, not because you saw signs, but because you ate of the loaves and were filled. 27"Do not work for the food which perishes, but for the food which endures to eternal life, which the Son of Man will give to you, for on Him the Father, God, has set His seal." 28Therefore they said to Him, "What shall we do, so that we may work the works of God?"…29Jesus answered and said to them, "This is the work of God, that you believe in Him whom He has sent."…
