      Brenda R It's one of the best Jesus movies I've ever watched. And I have watched many. And have watched this particular one dozens of times. The man that played Jesus did a remarkable job. That's actually one of the main reason I've enjoyed the movie. I have five favorite Jesus movies but I have chosen three Jesus movies in PICKING THE BEST ACTOR filling the role of JESUS. He is One of the three.. Best. I wish I could have met all three of them in person. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/27/24 Full Review Audience Member A dreary, acted narration of Luke 3-24 with acting stiffer than a piece of glass, this uncreative 'unmoving picture' fails to act as anything more than an audiobook with visuals to complement it. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/26/23 Full Review Audience Member The most accurate portrayal of the life of Jesus, this movie is a masterpiece for Christian audiences. Being translated in more 1400 languages, this is officially the most translated movie off all time. The perfect movie for e evangelism. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/24/23 Full Review Audience Member Taken entirely from the Gospel of Luke, "Jesus" is a mostly well-done portrayal of the birth, life, death, and resurrection of the Savior of the world. The acting is spot-on, and the production values are great for a film of that time, though they may seem slightly dated now. I did find the actor's portrayal of Jesus to be a little too staid in this film; though the actor smiled a time or two, he seemed a little too serious for someone that little kids liked to hang around. Though this film may be rated "G," I wouldn't suggest it for young audiences. The violence, though nowhere near Mel Gibson's "Passion" is a bit bloody at times, and the old-fashioned dialogue would confuse kids. For older children, teens, and adults, though, this would be a great supplement to a set of lessons based on the Gospel of Luke. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/26/23 Full Review Audience Member This particular film is used regularly by Christian missionaries across the globe and has a very straightforward approach to the story of Jesus. It is the ultimate tale of salvation, but somehow, this film makes it utterly forgettable. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/12/23 Full Review Audience Member great documentary about the life of Jesus, Lord and Savior of the world Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/20/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
