Jesus, the modern way, 5 September 1998
Author: Dougie B from United States

This film claimed to be a modern re-telling of the story of Jesus Christ, however, it took the more American Fundamentalist approach to the story. For the most part, people's opinion on this film will be swayed on their view of the Christian religion. But, if you look more closely at this film , you'll see it doesn't even fit the views of many of today's Christians. Some examples:

1) The one female lead was portrayed as a seductive temptress, who only was out to corrupt men.

2) The person who killed Jesse (Jesus) had stereotypically Jewish features. (Also, it showed a him in a church with a picture of Mary in the background, possibly suggesting an anti-Catholic message)

3) It seemed to really press on the fact that anyone else with Jesse's (Jesus's) power would only want to use it for personal gain.

There were a few other things in this movie that were hard to pick up on, like one of Jesse's disciples being beaten by a cop for no apparent reason. It would appear that this might be an attempt to gain sympathy where none was able to be earned.

Again, people will either love this or hate it, based on their opinion towards Christianity. For a movie, it was decently done, but for someone who doesn't know the story of Jesus, it might be really hard to follow
