Goofs

Mary Magdalene is portrayed as a prostitute possibly still active in her profession and is arrested for questioning in the investigation as she's entering a tavern known to be a place for soliciting potential customers. Both her identification with the woman caught in adultery and as a prostitute in general are based on medieval legends which have neither any canonical nor historical foundation; the New Testament indicates only that she was one of Jesus' followers because he had exorcised a number of evil spirits from her.

A religious movie for the masses that feels like an actual movie and not a Sunday school lesson.
26 May 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"I have seen two things which I cannot reconcile: A man dead without question, and that same man alive again." Clavius (Fiennes) is a Roman Tribune who has just been told to go complete a crucifixion where a Sentinel has refused. The next day he is tasked with making sure the body stays in the tomb. When he arrives in the morning and finds the tomb empty the course of human history is changed forever. Many of these religious themed movies fall in a trap of becoming too cheesy and too in your face for a main stream audience. This one is an exception. As expected there are some very religious aspects to this, but its never in your face or distracting enough to make you feel like you are being preached to. In fact even though everyone knows the story of this movie they never use the name Jesus. The movie is movie of a detective/missing body movie that a religious epic. For that reason the movie is main stream, watchable and something I did like a lot more than I expected to. Overall, a religious movie for the masses that feels like an actual movie and not a Sunday school lesson. I give this a B.
