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

Truly ABYSMAL
11 March 2004 | by See all my reviews

What a terrible waste of time. Just another weak attempt to try and cash in on the hype surrounding Mel Gibson's movie. Fortunately this piece of trash will easily be forgotten. The story is just made up, touching on a few events ripped from the Gospels, and loaded with contrived and anachronistic dialog (funny how they use the word "crusade" a full thousand years before it even happened, for example). By far the biggest insult to every real Christian is once again Jesus is portrayed as a bumbling, head-in-the-clouds airhead who has no idea what he's doing, and needs all these people around him to tell him what to do.

Really, this movie was an impossible task to begin with - retelling the Gospels from another's view does not work - the Bible has just one central character calling the shots. You might as well remake Star Wars from the point of view of R2D2. If you want a moving telling of the gospels, "Jesus of Nazareth" is still by far the best out there. While that too has fictional characters added in, it still proves to be the noblest and most sublime.
