3.0 out of 5 stars Still great, but this version is disappointing, 30 April 2003
By A Customer
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Jesus Of Nazareth (Cinema Version) [DVD] (DVD)
I own a set of this on video and always loved the majesty so imagine my delight to find this on DVD! I was, however, disppointed to discover that nearly 90 minutes have been cut out of the original.
One of the most known stories of Christ's life is that of His birth, and the quest to find room at the various inns of Bethlehem. This entire scene has been cust amongst others that, to my mind are integral to the story.
It is a multi disc set, and I, for one would gladly have paid a little extra to have had the entire original version. There are, also, no features on this set, which is a pity.
Still, the whole is still every bit as enjoyable as the original and I still feel that Robert Powell is powerful as Jesus. The all star cast is superb and the majesty of the whole is not totally lost and still has something to give to new viewers.
I WILL still enjoy the whole each time I view it but will regret the loss of the various bits that have been cut.

This review (ans the others on this page) is the same as those for the other DVD which does not claim to ahve 2 hours additional running time. It is therefore impossible to know which of these two different versions of the film this review (and the others) pertains to.
