An average movie

Of course, like everyone else, I heard about this flick when it was released and I was really curious to see exactly what was all the fuss about. Eventually, I thought it was an interesting experimental feature, Mel Gibson was quite courageous with this flick but, still, I can’t say I thought it was really amazing. I mean, in my opinion, at the end of the day, this movie is ¾ about a guy who is getting whipped, beaten and tortured in front of us which is not something I find really interesting or entertaining. The fact that the victim was Jesus and not some other guy doesn’t change this fact and, honestly, I had sometimes the feeling that I was watching some kind of deep religious version of a ‘Saw’ installment. You can always argue that I didn’t get this movie because I’m a die-hard atheist and therefore I wasn’t touched  by the passion displayed by our beloved prophet. As a matter of fact, even though I don’t believe in God, I find religion actually fascinating but, in my opinion, what Gibson decided to show in his movie was rather reductive and, honestly, pretty repetitive. Still, it is far from being a bad movie. Indeed, the first ¼ of the movie, before the whole torture thing, was quite mesmerizing to behold and even the rest was quite intriguing, thanks to a fearless performance by Jim Caviezel and some solid directing by Mel Gibson. To conclude, even though I wasn’t really blown away by the whole thing, it remains an interesting and unsettling flick and I think it is worth a look.

Like I said in my review, Jim Caviezel gave a solid performance.
