Criticisms and praises
12 September 2001 | by bytebugmanSee all my reviews

This was a movie that purported to be a modern-day retelling of the life of Christ. Such a lofty goal is understandably hard to reach, and this movie, close though it came, didn't quite reach that goal.

For starters, there's the name. Why Jesse? Why not instead Joshua, which is the more precise transliteration of the Hebrew "Yeshua", which is the Hebrew form of "Jesus"? Beyond that, there's also the fact that his teachings aren't quite correctly quoted, and the miracles are a bit understated. (The small "multitude" by the sea could have been at least bigger.) And why didn't we see more of Jesse being resurrected than just one appearance to Peter?

But the overriding theme of the movie is the power of love, even God's love for us, and that only through Christ can we have eternal life. Also, the transfiguration and crucifixion scenes are decently done.

Not bad: but it could have been so much better.
