It is the year 33 of the Vulgar Era. The Emperor Tiberius is troubled by strange phenomena, an earthquake and the sky turning black as an eclipse. His astrologers give him fair warning: their omens indicate that the world is in the throes of a great upheaval and that old gods have been annihilated. A new kingdom is about to rise in the East. The Emperor calls Tito Valerio Tauro, the most prominent investigator in Rome, back from his exile. He was ostracized years earlier because he had discovered too much regarding the death of the great Emperor Augustus, the predecessor of Tiberius. Tiberius entrusts Tauro with a mission that will require all his talent; should he conduct it successfully, his good name will be completely restored. He must discover the truth regarding the death sentence of a poor Judean rabbi. His name is Jesus of Nazareth and they say he has resurrected from the dead. Tiberius is convinced that it has something to do with the prophecies and the celestial omens that ... Written by

In the early scene in which Tito Valerio Tauro leaves Tiberius on the isle of Capri, the film is being run backwards because the fire and smoke on the upper right of the scene is going into the fire, not up and away from it . See more »
The acting was pretty bad, but I got the feeling that it was a movie made with minimal takes. At least twice, the actors stumbled over their line and then had to repeat the correct line. It was like watching a Junior High play.
But, I liked the story, and thought the story got better as the movie went along. The script, however, was terrible. I thought there was some bad editing that left me to guess about the plot situations. My knowledge of Scripture helped.
I thought the 'slave' role created for Dolph Lungren was unnecessary, and cartoonish. If the main character needed a big, enforcer-type sidekick why not just have another Roman solider? At least, then, their expressed friendship at the end would be more realistic.
All said, not bad for $3.99 on Pay Per View.
