"The Passion" of 1983
12 March 2004 | by (Ohio) – See all my reviews

I had just become a Christian when this film came out. The reason I bring this up is because I probably would've never heard of it otherwise! If memory serves, this film was shown for two weeks only in limited theaters with virtually NO advertising. This film was WAY ahead of it's time and it took balls to put it out. For that alone, and the fact that somehow they got the gorgeous Morgan Brittany to risk her entire career to appear in it, make me give it a 9/10. Other than that, the film wasn't that memorable, but hey, it's been 21 years, I should see it again. The film lacked a fluid movement. The storyline was very unusual and probably scared Hollywood like The Passion does now. If not for the power of Billy Graham being behind it, it never would've been on screen. Actually, I think God wanted it out there for awhile to reach some people. Maybe it still reaches some today. FLAMIO
