The Passion of the Christ (2004)
The Passion of Christ is no more violent and no less accurate than The Gladiator. More accurate when I hear Latin (eventhough sounding a little too Italian) and Aramaic coming from the actors. Anti-Jewish? Not possible. Throughout the movie, Jesus forgives everyone. Tells us to forgive. The movie shows Pontius Pilate, Caiphus, Jews, Romans, all were responsible for killing Christ. But Christ, and at the least, true Christians, forgive. So regardless that Man was responsible, if he asks for His forgiveness, he is absolved.
I've read other comments complaining about Jim Caviezel not being "Middle Eastern" and of being Caucasian. "Middle Eastern" people are Caucasian, as are Asian Indians of all color, who cares, we're all human.
As for the Rating and violence. This was real, this IS important. For those that say it was gratuitous and that it doesn't show the "true" Christian values of hope and love: It shows, forgiveness through extreme hardship, it shows the love of His Mother, it shows the many people, Jews and Romans, directly touched by the love of Jesus, it shows hope with His resurrection.
Not a dry eye in the theatre. Believable!
The Sum of All Fears (2002)
The movie was so apart from the book that I could watch it as a separate story. Movie was great cinema. The Blast could've been a little more believable...EMP, flashpoint...disintegrated downtown. (The helicopter radio probably would be shorted out along with everything else) While watching, the few points from the book seeped out but were after-thoughts. The PC tones throughout the movie (cigarette machine bomb, nazi terrorists...) were expected. Overall not bad.
