Clever
27 June 2017 | by (Dundee, Scotland) – See all my reviews

Overall, Jesus Comes to Town is a clever little film. There are some good lines and some good looks. The characters all interact with Jesus in different ways, as you might expect. For example, one of the characters reacts badly and cannot bear to be in the same room as him.

Whatever you think of Christianity, I don't think you can deny that it provides philosophers, musicians, comedians, and filmmakers with a great deal of material to work with. In this case, the filmmakers have picked up some of the concepts and cleverly blended them with a modern world setting involving the game of poker. The result is well worth a look.

I note that the game of poker also gets a mention in the science fiction shows Star Trek and Babylon 5 (which is how I ended up here, via Claudia Christian). In particular, I'm thinking of the Star Trek episode "The Corbomite Maneuver".
