Son of (ho-hum) God

By jeremygregg
Written March 01, 2014
Disappointing for a lifelong Christian who was hoping for a more emotional, deeper look at Christ. Not enough focus on Christ's humanity or His deity. It reminded me of a movie made entirely from stories told in a 1st grade Sunday School classroom. Plot line problems: The tearing of the temple veil was almost an afterthought, even though is one of the MOST significant elements of the crucifixion story. They also held to the long-accepted but historically false nativity scene, in which the Magi arrive immediately after His birth (in reality it was 2-3 years later). Technically speaking, the CGI scenery of the city and the temple look fake - it reminded me of the painted far-off desert scenes in old spaghetti westerns. I realize this was a cable-TV mini-series that was made into a movie - but I still think they could have done a better job. For someone who wants to see the stories of Jesus, this is a good film. For the devout, it is lacking.

This was an awesome movie! It was all about Jesus. It really brings several of the stories in the Bible to life. It made me have a more clear picture of several situations. The actors were obviously selected carefully. Like Roma Downey said.. Jesus deserves the big screen! Please go support this.

Son of God (Hijo De Dios)

A well adapted screenplay. It's a huge challenge trying to condense the Life of Christ into a mere 2hrs. and 18min. While this dictates the allowance for "some wiggle room in the details", the producers have been very true both "the story" & the important spiritual lessons from Jesus's life.

Son of God is about parts of the greatest story ever told. The actors had good performances, the directing was solid and the cinematography was right. I recommend this film to moviegoers the like history.

Very disappointing. Too little on events in his life. Too much on just the cruxification and too little on the 40 days after. Weak actors in most roles. Extremely disappointing.
