THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST (WIDESCR MOVIE

Customer Reviews

Top Customer Reviews

Format: DVD
Bloody and controversial, Mel Gibson's The Passion of the Christ isn't exactly what one would expect of a Biblical drama, but his deeply personal and profoundly moving film is certainly epic both visually and emotionally. Using "passion" in the original sense of suffering Gibson does not let his audience off lightly with his horrifically realistic depictions of Christ's torment.
The story should be familiar to viewers, following the last few hours of Jesus' [Jim Caviezel] life on Earth. Beginning with His agony in the Garden of Gethsemane, we witness Jesus' betrayal by His own disciple, arrest and trial by Caiaphas [Mattia Sbragia] and the Jewish leaders, subsequent investigation by Roman governer Pontius Pilate [Hristo Shopov], violent scourging and finally His crucifixation and death. Interspersed are flashbacks to moments from his earlier life and ministry.
Undoubtedly everyone who sees The Passion will take home their own haunting images, and most shocking of all is the flogging sequence. In part this is due to the fact it is often overlooked in favour of the crucifixation, whereas in fact it is far more brutal. With terrifying realism we watch as Caviezel's Christ is beaten and then whipped till His skin is torn and His back is a shredded pulp. It comes as something of a relief then that Jesus wears a tunic while carrying the Cross, else being forced to look at His ripped and ruined flesh for that length of time may well have become unbearable. Most amazing is Caviezel's astoundingly empathic performance; bowed and broken we can still feel the love in his eyes and the divinity in the way he carries himself. Morganstern and Bellucci are equally magnificent in imbuing their performances with real character behind the floods of tears.

Mel Gibson revealed his maverick side first as a director and then as an actor, although most forget that, as young actor, he played in some of the best films of the early 80s, all diected by Peter Weir (Gallipoli, The Year of living dangerously).
He used to be a human and sweet guy then, but already showing a glimpse of his passionate, torn and unreconciled view of the world.
Here he goes all the way, and does it his way, to accomplish a personal vision of Christ and a story that maybe needed to be refreshed after 2000 years. A story made of blood, suffering, violence, prevarication and betrayal. Not a happy ending story. And here, you can feel it throughout the film. A film shot in latin, with a surprising yet perfect casting, and a bold, brave direction which do not care much about the usual way to movie-direction. Mel seems to say: this is my film, and I don't care if other directors might criticize my style, nor if someone in the audience might not like it.
So it does not look, apparently, so "heretic" as Scorsese's last temptation of Christ or brilliantly blaspheme as Life of Brian's, but it is definitely a genuine and refreshing approach to the story and main character, full of respect. The repect a tormented man like Gibson may feel for another tormented man like Jesus. Blu ray is excellent

WARNING: You will not have failed to notice that there are many different ‘versions’ of this DVD. The first one I got was produced in such a way that the subtitles could only be displayed along with a stream of information regarding the background sound.

Consequently, the excellent film was ruined by “loud wind”, “screeching bird”, “noisy crowd” etc., etc., etc. being flagged up at the bottom of the screen. I presumed, wrongly, that there would be an option to have ‘standard’ subtitles. In fact my choice was limited to “English Subtitles for the Hearing Impaired” or “no subtitles”.

Using Aramaic and Latin was, in my opinion, an inspired decision by (I presume) Mel Gibson, and helps to make this such a very special film. However, it does mean that subtitles are a necessity for those wishing to understand what is being said.

Hoping to find a ‘normal’ DVD, I decided to order 2 more versions from Amazon. Low and behold, success!

The one to avoid with ‘hearing impaired subtitles’ is:

2 Disc Director’s Edition – grey framing small picture of Christ carrying cross
Barcode: 5 039036 030816
Back of box note: English for the hearing impaired

The two with ‘standard subtitles’ (as well as ‘hearing impaired subtitles’) are:

2 Disc Definitive Edition – bluey grey picture of Christ’s head
Barcode: 5 051429 100487
Amazon code X00044Z9EH
Back of box note: Feature Subtitles: English / English HOH

1 Disc – brown picture of Christ’s head
Barcode: 5 050070 022438
Amazon code X0005P9PLN
Back of box note: Subtitles in English plus Hard of Hearing Subtitles

Hope this helps others avoid the frustration and unnecessary expense that I incurred!

This film has genuinely touched me. I am not what would be considered a Christian but I do have immense respect for Christ's teachings although in my opinion they have been twisted and convoluted over time. Essentially, what he preached was so simple. Anyway, getting back to Gibson's brilliant piece of work; one word comes to mind - harrowing. Caveziel's performance is heartfelt and genius. One of the best pieces of acting I have witnessed, truly. The flogging scene is extremely hard to watch without shedding tears, which I do every time I watch it. Some will say it is excessive but I suspect this was actually how torture was carried out at the time.
Yes, the film is hard going and to some extent quite depressing to watch but inevitably tugs at the heartstrings and makes one contemplate the true meaning of life and Christ's message.
The fact that it is subtitled and in Aramaic only adds to the genuine feel of the film; it certainly does not detract. It is widely known that there has been a degree of anti-semitic criticism surrounding the portayal of the jews' role in Christ's circumastances and fate. However, the depiction of the Romans' treatment of Christ is equally if not more in depth so I think there is a balance there.

All in all, a work of brilliance by Gibson - highly recommended.
