Fun for kids and adults, provides a lot of laughs, teaches a little history, even makes a few points about parent/child relationships.
The bloodshed and lack of character development are laughable, and even the striking visual 'wow factor' of the original has vanished.
A respectful telling of the life of Christ—perhaps too respectful—that, like so many other movies about Jesus, is a mostly solemn affair.
From the first hazy moments shrouded in a faint sense of impending doom to the final resolution, this is a thinking person's action film.
Yet another example of wasted potential, quickly devolving into flat, uninspired storytelling, one-note characters and decent effects.
