velocityidp, thank you for your detailed review. I will not be able to see this movie. I am personally made ill by extreme violence. It hurts my spirit.
When Braveheart was first out, I was out of town by myself. Somehow thinking that this movie was a love story, I decided to spend the afternoon at the theater. I had to leave the theater mid movie, the violence was more than I could, or would take. I believe this movie, the depiction of the death of Christ to be even more brutally graphic.
The life and death of Jesus was something that changed the lives of many in our world. I myself prefer to dwell on the positive and caring events in his life, but I am sure those things would not make box office profits, in a world where violence and gore bring in the crowds, and the big money.
