Storyline

Judas meets Jesus and at first doesn't know what to make of him or whether or not to trust him. A cynical city boy, Judas makes fun of the country bumpkin disciples who follow Jesus but eventually decides to join the band, as well. He and Jesus become good friends, even though they often see things very differently. Ultimately, Judas is convinced that Jesus needs to use his popularity and wonder-working powers to free the Jews from the Romans, and Jesus sees a larger, spritual perspective. As a friend, Judas convinces Jesus to give his disciples his miraculous powers, and he does with good results. Finally, the Jewish leaders spy on Judas and convince him of the greater good of betraying Jesus, in order to save the Jewish people. Judas gets caught between the corrupt leaders, Caiaphus and Pontius Pilate, and Jesus. Written by Anonymous

Trivia

While Jesus is shown here being crucified on a traditionally-shaped cross, the thieves on either side of him are shown having been crucified on X-shaped crosses. This may date back to the early medieval painters who believed that in depicting the two thieves as being crucified in exactly the same manner as Jesus, they were diminishing the unique, special nature of Jesus' death. Thus they began to show the thieves as being crucified in manners unlike that inflicted on Jesus. See more »

Did Jesus own his own Surf board?
11 July 2004 | by (Boston, MA) – See all my reviews

The reason I ask if Jesus owned his own surf board is because he looked like he was born and raised in Malibu. While Judas has its moments,the other 85 minutes of the movie is utter garbage. In the shadow of The Passion, the networks only real motive to show this movie was for profit. Judas has moments of stunning visual achievement (although not historically accurate) and interesting dialogue (questionable) between Pilate and Jesus. Still, I found myself laughing at most of the stuff Jesus says and does. In defense of the Actors in this crap of a movie, it's hard to do anything good if the script is bad. The best-worst line in the entire movie is when after Jesus tells Judas that he wants to take him to paradise with his Father, Jesus says to Judas: "What do you say?" Forgetting proper English along with any traces of biblical authenticity, that line defines the mess this movie is. To anyone wanting to be screen writers or filmmakers, if you want to make a serious movie, use serious dialogue. If not, make a movie like Judas.
