I saw the first film version when it was first released and have a copy on video. It wasn't until I saw this recent version that I realised how brilliant the original was. This new version is very stagey. None of the actors seem to have any connection with the story or characters and prefer to "act". I felt nothing. It seems that the director was not understanding the emotions behind the songs. You can get by with this on stage as they did in the west end version I saw. Glenn Carter does not have the vocal power or emotion of Ted Neeley.If you can get ahold of the original I urge you to see it.

This is so much better than the film version. Set in modern times and no messy jumping to seventies clothes, beautifully sung and cleverly shot so it appears to be set in a film studio but follows the stage scenes. Bought the DVD as I am appearing in the show soon but I love the version and watch for it pure enjoyment.

J.C. is weak and sinful, can't get to grips with the opera and ruins the disc. Nothing like the live show or even the audio disc. Things just happen to this hero, that's not the dynamic character Lloyd-Webber put in his show.

Jesus Christ Superstar is the definitive Rock Opera, nay, Rock Musical. Each of the songs is incredible, so it's (in my opinion) quite hard to do them a misjustice. Far from it here, it seems. Jesus is Jesus. Judas is Judas. Simon Zealotes is whacky. Pilate is my favourite character as well as incredible and commanding. Caiaphas powerful and important. Annas cold and calculating. Herod overjoyed and disgusted. This is a great DVD to rent, buy or... just watch the damn thing!

I bought this video the day it came out - after having been waiting for many months from seeing the tantalisingly short snatches of it on the trailer from 'Joseph' and the recent programmes 'Barrymore on Broadway'. It is almost all of what I hoped it would be. Judas, Mary, Pontius Pilate, the disciples, priests and chorus are utterly and totally amazing! The effects are great, it has a brilliant climax and the beginning really spooked me and got me hooked and the music, as always, is superb. However Jesus is not totally up to scratch I think. I think he has a good voice but didn't really suit the part. The first shot of him, I'm sorry to say, had my friend and I in giggles - not the aim of the film!! He was too much like a girl and the difference between him and Judas, the disciples, priests and Pilate was too stark. He seemed very much like Mary, I would have liked himn to be a bit more masculine! He also has a tendancy to look like Charlie Dimmock of Ground Force! But other than him (and he wasn't relly that bad!) it is a brilliant film and one not to be missed.
