  • The film does thoroughly succeed in one important regard: offering a coherent, viewer-friendly account of the life of Jesus Christ. show more

  • It's undoubtedly a daunting role, and Morgado captures the gentle benevolence associated with the messianic figure. He doesn't, however, project the authority, gravitas or depth of a spiritual leader. show more

  • Director Christopher Spencer’s biblical yarn lacks the complex rigor of Martin Scorsese’s “The Last Temptation of Christ” and the fury of Mel Gibson’s “The Passion of the Christ,” leaving its star, Diogo Morgado, stuck in a film that’s stiff and earnest. show more

    This was a ten episode series at one point last year called The Bible. I own every episode, but this is still an incredible representation of the stories told of Jesus Christ in The Bible.

    Wonderful, may be a repeat but how mny times do we need to be reminded. Most of us are not perfect enoungh that we do not need to watch a good, acturate movie of the life of Christ.
