Most critics and distractors didn’t spare the Christian movie, the Passion of the Christ as they criticized it with a lot of words, terming it pornographic and full of arduous torture. This is not the case with the Christian community and other right-minded people.
The filming of the movie was done in Aramaic, though with English subtitles. That alone develops the film’s enjoyment and make the person emotional which will direct the mystery and sacredness to the subject. Since most people have an idea of what the movie is about, they will not get distracted reading the subtitles. Instead, you will find yourself getting all your attention drawn on the visual images on your screen, and time after time, you will find unfolding events that will captivate your attention more.
The main things in the movie are the accounts of the New Testament Gospel that narrate the events that happened to the time Christ was crucified. It is important to note that children should not watch the movie at all even if most evangelical Christians advice everybody to. Though passion forms the main theme, there may be violence in the film that will make it look otherwise. This calls for explanation to 16 years old before they can watch the movie.
It is clear from the start that there are bad things about to happen, as Jesus of Nazareth prays at the Garden of Gethsemane that he may be delivered by God, His Father. There is a satanic figure lurking in the shadows, making the series of the temptations and doubts vivid. The figure gives a message that there is no way one can clean out the sins of the whole world, that it is too much and impossible. All these temptations didn’t make Jesus give in, and the disciple Judas arrives to betray him to the many guards.
He is then lead by the guard in chains to meet the high priest. There are several people we meet, the Pharisees and leading priests who question him if he is the Son of God and he did tell them that he is. This led to his mocking, hitting and spitting on him. They then take him to Pilate, to be killed.
Pilate find Jesus innocent but still ordered him to be whipped. Here, we find a lot of brutality by the Roman soldiers. If you don’t stop the movie at that position, you won’t till he is crucified.
Flashback used in the movie is amazing, how Jesus was a toddler and all the happenings then. This movie as not made it to the top among the Christian movies but as a whole. If you believe Jesus of Nazareth is the biblical Messiah, then the film narrates the enormity of God’s sacrifice.
