Storyline

It is the year 33 A.D. The Emperor Tiberius is troubled by strange phenomena, an earthquake and the sky turning black as an eclipse. His astrologers give him fair warning: their omens indicate that the world is in the throes of a great upheaval and that old gods have been annihilated. A new kingdom is about to rise in the East. The Emperor calls Tito Valerio Tauro, the most prominent investigator in Rome, back from his exile. He was ostracized years earlier because he had discovered too much regarding the death of the great Emperor Augustus, the predecessor of Tiberius. Tiberius entrusts Tauro with a mission that will require all his talent; should he conduct it successfully, his good name will be completely restored. He must discover the truth regarding the death sentence of a poor Judean rabbi. His name is Jesus of Nazareth and they say he has resurrected from the dead. Tiberius is convinced that it has something to do with the prophecies and the celestial omens that shook the world... Written by anonymous

Goofs

Afraid of attempts to kill him, the emperor Tiberius didn't allow anyone (with the exception, of course, of his hand-picked bodyguards) to carry arms in his presence. Yet, Titus Valerius has his sword on his left hip when on Capri. See more »

Alternate Versions

There are two versions of the film, a theatrical one (112') and a TV one in two parts (190' - 95' each). The extended version premiered on Italian and is available on the Czech DVD edition. The TV version is highly recommended due to its complete script with a larger cast of relevant characters, which increases plot weight and eases the story understanding. Apart of some characters, a few secondary outlines appear despite of the cinema version. Sometimes, the short version seems to be cut off, but some viewer's questions may be shown are fully solved in the most amusing TV version. See more »

Nice music , some potential , but in the end it's a snooze fest
28 December 2014 | by MaziunSee all my reviews

This is a remake of a 1986 film directed by Damiano Damiani, with Harvey Keitel , Keith Carradine and Phyllis Logan. Well , actually it's a very loose remake - the title, basic premise, and name of the lead character are all that remain. I haven't seen the 80's original , but some praise it as a clever little thriller.

When I look at the story here I see a potential for an intriguing and touching thriller about faith. Unfortunately what we get is badly acted and directed movie that it's almost impossible to watch. There is no suspense and the pacing is dreadful . The acting as I already mentioned is weak – only Dolph Lundgren and Max von Sydow give decent performances. It's interesting to see Lundgren here. He's well casted and does provide some action to the movie , even if he's a supporting character. I'm wondering what he is doing here. This movie has been produced by Nu Image – the same studio that Lundgren has been making his last crappy action movies. Was it part of his contract or did he simply wanted to do something different for his career ? I guess will never know. Not that it matters.

The music for this movie was composed by somebody named Morricone. Maybe he is related to Ennio Morricone ? I don't know. It's a really nice music and the best part of the movie. I give it 1/10.
