A Jesus for the new millennium!
28 March 2002 | by (Longmont, Colorado) – See all my reviews

Hard to know what to make of this. I'm inclined to say overall I didn't like it, but only because it doesn't sit right with me. Production wise its an earnest enough little affair, obviously trying to give Mary a bit more of the limelight here, in fact Pernilla August is downright excellent, just the right blend of strength and humility - she simply doesn't look like the mother of Jesus!

Christian Bale emotes and gives us a hands-on Jesus, but the "know wot I mean" Brit accents (for me at least) totally sink it, Michael Mears as John the Baptist especially. OK so Robert Ryan's accent in KING OF KINGS was no closer the mark, but he had the presence to carry it off! Another problem, associating Christian Bale forever as Patrick Bateman in AMERICAN PSYCHO, the idea of him, of all people playing Jesus just doesn't cut it with me.

OK KING OF KINGS was syrupy, Hollywoodesque, whatever you want to believe, but in the minds of little children throughout the world (and mine too if the truth be told), Jeffrey Hunter will be there waiting patiently for us in Heaven with outstretched arms, not Christopher Bale or any one of the other two dozen or so actors have taken up the cross in the name of acting.
