Very Thought Provoking Film 10/10
4 June 2008 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

A super film which I recommend you go and see.

When I first thought about going to see this film I checked the web for reviews and because of some of them were bad I nearly didn't go to see it but I am very glad I did. I don't know if these people writing the bad reviews are Christians or have even seen it, I know some of the worst comments are on Christian websites , and I have nothing against Christians or any other religion, and maybe they feel threatened by the subject matter of the film. I know the Vatican has already tried to dismiss the film as nonsense so this may have had an influence on some reviewers. Also there has been talk that some of the evidence is slightly shaky by some Renne-le-Château researchers, but then these researchers have their own research, book writing career, etc. to protect so their opinions are very bias against the film. Ignore everything you read about this film, good or bad, and just go and see it for yourself with an open mind. I read another comment in a review here about the cinema audience liking the film and I must agree, the same was with the people in the screening I saw. When the film was over 4 people, who had not seen the film, entered the cinema and started quoting scriptures from the bible. Needless to say they were booed constantly until they left. This is evidence that the Christian church are worried by this film and the questions it raises. I think all Christians should go and see Bloodline so they too can join in the debate that will surly follow over the coming months. It is a great film on more than one level and if the Vatican is worried by the points raised in the film then it must have been built on very shaky ground indeed. Perhaps it is time they come clean about some of the secrets they keep hidden away on the true story of their church. The present Pope only inherited the lies and I think it would make the church stronger if they were more open and honest about their history.
