By the book retelling of the life of Jesus could have been great film had they a better script and a better budget
28 May 2007 | by (Glen Cove, New York) – See all my reviews

This is essentially a filmed stage play detailing the life of Jesus. Its not bad, and it is better than many other filmed stage plays, but it suffers from it being little more than actors walk through the scenes quoting excerpts from the bible. Most of the actors give earnest and good performances, though by simply quoting scripture they have very little to work with the up shot of which is that some give performances that would better on stage rather than on film. I would have loved to see the actor playing Jesus do so in movie that was more than just an exercise in quotation since he brings something to the role lacking in many other screen Jesus'. More Sunday school material than entertainment this is the type of thing you might run across as filler at 3am on religious oriented cable stations. 4 out of 10, mostly because its good enough to make you wish it had been more than it is.
