The first testament says "an eye for an eye." The second testament says "love thy neighbour." The third testament KICKS ASS! The filmmaking team that brought you Harry Knuckles and won the "Spirit of Slamdance" prize with Harry Knuckles and the Treasure of the Aztec Mummy ups the ante with this tale of the ultimate action hero: Jesus Christ. The second coming is upon us, and Jesus has returned to earth. But before he can get down to the serious business of judging the living and the dead, he has to contend with an army of vampires that can walk in the daylight. Combining kung-fu action with biblical prophecy and a liberal dose of humour, the film teams the Savior with Mexican wrestling hero El Santos against mythological horrors and science gone mad, and also manages to address contemporary sexual politics. And did we mention that it's a musical? This sure ain't Sunday School. Written by Lee Demarbre <>

an explanation for the film interpreting inept
2 December 2003 | by See all my reviews

I'm not sure what a number of people have against this film. My only ideas is that they have no appreciation of the art form known as film making and instead are expecting multi million dollar Hollywood blockbusters. After I viewed JCVH at our local film festival it was quite apparent to me as to what the intent of the director/ writer was. To play with the kung-fu, horror, musical and action genres, manipulating them as they wish into one finished product. The film was shot on 16mm with a Bolex camera, for those that don't know, a Bolex is an non sync camera which means it is imposable to record sound that is in sync with the film. The intent of the filmmaker was to make a classical style, genre film without it falling into the same category as all the other north American classical films. Does he succeed in his goal? I would definitely say so! The lack of budget built character into the film to such a point that I would say it would have been nowhere near as good if it was just another Hollywood by-product.

I greatly enjoyed this film, as it was identifiable as every independent filmmaker's dream: to make a film on their own terms, that they enjoy, and to see it become a success.
