Mel Gibson's "The Passion" Movie Review
Mel Gibson's 'The Passion' Movie Review by Lady Camelot
Numbing, captivating, sorrowful, beautiful, profound,
phenomenal and humbling - are just a few words to describe Mel
Gibson's "The Passion." The last 12 hours of Jesus' life has
never been so realistically and dramatically depicted. The
scenes, although graphic are compelling and true-to-life.
The most sensitive scene presents Jesus carrying the cross upon
His shoulders. As He staggers upon the cobblestone walkway, Mary
sees a flashback of their lives together. A mere child, Jesus
falls to the ground and Mother Mary is there to help him, "I'm
here," she says. A million miles away in thought, Mary runs to
the aid of her now-grown Son-Of-Man, as He, too stumbles to the
"The Passion" truly characterizes the meaning of "truth." There
are no other words to describe this film other than it is "The
Passion" of Christ. If anything, "The Passion" promotes absolute
faith, forgiveness, love and hope - not only to God, but of
humankind as well.
Starring James Caviezel (as leading role of Jesus Christ), "The
Passion," in my opinion, does not induce an anti-Semitic
depiction of the Jewish people; rather, it is a deep and
profound truth which Mel Gibson had courage to recreate for all
the world to see.
"The Passion" is playing in movie theaters everywhere. My advice
is to view this movie with an open mind and open heart - the
rest will follow.
I rate this movie: 4 STARS
