The label on top of Jesus' cross says "Jesus the Nazarene, king of the Jews" in Hebrew, Greek and Latin, as mentioned in the Gospel of John. While the Hebrew text looks correct, the Greek and Latin lines appear to be horizontally mirrored. See more »

Awesome movie. Kind of took me by surprise.
19 February 2016 | by See all my reviews

I just came back from seeing Risen, and I have to say, I was actually impressed. This is a very well made movie. They handled the biblical story respectfully, while taking creative license in a way that maintained the spirit and overall message of the gospel. To anyone else considering making another film based on the bible, please take note of this film. This is how it's done. No rock creatures to be found here. Just a wonderful film that tells the story with excellence and dignity. I absolutely loved this movie, and fought tears during the 2nd half. I eventually lost that battle, and I heard other sniffles in the audience as well. So be prepared. (By the way, someone please nominate that Roman guard in tavern for an award.)
