New Son Of God Movie Delivered A Mediocre Version Of Jesus’ Story & More

New Son Of God movie delivered a mediocre version of Jesus' story & more. 20th Century Fox released their new drama flick, "Son Of God," into theaters this weekend. I just checked it out, and thought it was pretty mediocre at best. I actually thought the 2000 TV version ,named "Jesus," delivered a much better version of the Jesus story. This one stars: Diogo Morgado, Greg Hicks, Adrian Schiller, Darwin Shaw, Sebastian Knapp, Joe Wredden, Simon Kunz, Paul Marc Davis, Matthew Gravelle, Amber Rose Revah, and Roma Downey. Basically, this movie was just another rehashed telling of the story of Jesus the Christ, and it really came off that way. It showed his humble birth and all of his most popular miracles he performed like healing the crippled man, finding all the fish in the water, raising Lazarus from the dead ,and more. We also saw the drama he incurred with Pharisees,

Son of God is a Chintzy Melodrama About the Horrors of Capital Punishment

Son of God is a Chintzy Melodrama About the Horrors of Capital Punishment
When we first meet the hero of Son of God, a kind of chintzy melodrama about the horrors of capital punishment, he’s approaching a fisherman with a classic boiler-room pitch: "Just give me an hour, and I will give you a whole new life," Jesus (Diogo Morgado) promises Peter (Darwin Shaw), this messiah’s self-amused look and extra dimples suggesting the face of different J.C.: Jim Carrey. Often, working a miracle, he looks as pleased as a professional magician dazzling with a trick. Peter agrees to hear him out and is rewarded with a holy fish bounty. We never really hear the rest of what Jesus says to him, which is a shame. That 60-minute presentation would be a gift in comparison to this kid-traumatizing 138-minute nails-in-the-hands storybook, a movie that sh...

'Atlantis' episode 5 review: Jason, Ariadne on the run in 'White Lies'

'White Lies' is what one might term an 'Ariadne-centric' episode of Atlantis - a bit of a blank slate at first, Aiysha Hart's enchanting princess has displayed fiery flashes of personality in the past few weeks. Here, caught in the middle of a family crisis, she finally takes something approaching centre stage.

With Ariadne locked away in her ivory tower and Jason down among the peasants, the story-of-the-week gives the pining pair an excuse to finally share some meaningful screen time after weeks of brief, longing glances.

What we're subsequently treated to is a little teen-romance-by-numbers - conversations through locked doors, Jason catching the briefest of glances as his lady love changes clothes - but Hart and her scene partner Jack Donnelly are both charming performers who make this familiar 'will they / won't they' shtick watchable.

The main thrust of 'White Lies' concerns Ariadne's brother

Review Dave Adamson 26 Oct 2013 - 21:00

Atlantis' talented cast continues to be stymied by underwhelming dialogue and storytelling. Here's Dave's review of White Lies...

This review contains spoilers.

1.5 White Lies

First up, let's recap the action of this week's Atlantis.

Whilst a mysterious stranger breaks into the palace and attacks Ariadne, Hercules is betting on beetles. The intruder passes a note to Ariadne, before being injured and caught, setting Ariadne on her own mission, whilst he suffers at the hands of Pasiphae and her dark ways. Thankfully, Ariadne has a plan that involves duping Jason into escorting her handmaiden and it is soon discovered that the poor, mysterious stranger was delivering a note to say that Ariadne’s brother, Therus, the betrayer of his Kingdom, is actually very much alive and well, seeking justice for the lies that have been told about him.
