A total waste, misused biblical character of Jesus
4 August 2016 | by dberroyaSee all my reviews

A total waste, if you want a good if not at least romanticized, heavily biased interesting movie on Jesus with some close to factual depiction of a segment of his human life.

Also a waste of good acting talent with a script and plot that is evidently poorly done, even as one attempt to introduce some interesting twist.

Quite frankly, the story line is totally lacking any artistry, even baseless, unfounded of any biblical or historical fact about Jesus' 40 days trials and temptations in the desert.

Nut shell, other than the misused biblical character of Jesus, this is a movie with a poorly plotted, poorly directed bland, desperately boring fictional story.
