I'm a humanist Reverend and have some what of an interest in religious studies and I have to say this is a great film. If you are a believer or a non-believer or just don't care this is a thought provoking film about human-kinds relationship with "GOD." Christopher Eccleston is one of my favorite actors and does a great job of portraying the semi-reluctant son of God. One of the highlights of this film is the interaction between Steve, Ecclestons character, and his friends. Some of his friends believe in him and some don't right off the bat. The way people react is probably very realistic, hard to say since this hasn't happened before. The ending is very good and actually surprising since in America it would never have been chosen, the alternate ending would have been chosen instead.
