Not as good as most
11 May 2006 | by wntucSee all my reviews

The story was choppy but this is understood because of time constraints and to keep it moving. The emotion seemed to be misplaced--none when needed, too much at other times. The acting was a bit stiff. Had the feel of a stage play. Christ seemed to stare into infinity a bit much and some of the others speech overs reminded me of a Japanese monster movie (Paul especially). As with most movies with a female protagonist there is the occasional male bashing and I'm sorry but was Mary nearby,in the room or around the corner of every major event in Christ's life? Maybe I'm just spoiled by "The Greatest Story Ever Told" version. ..... .....
