This version of the story of Jesus revolves more around history than supernatural miracles. Its the story of a man who struggles with his own divinity and even doubts it. The story is based loosely on historical facts, and takes some artistic license. Some scenes are very detailed, like the last super, while others are glossed over or left out altogether, like the attack in the garden.
For those who take everything in the bible literally, this is not going to be the movie for you. For those who are a little more open minded, this is a decent movie that can be beautiful and touching. Historically, the sets and costumes were fantastic and all the actors did a great job. Overall, I enjoyed this take on the life of Jesus. It was thought provoking and entertaining, though a little anticlimactic since we all know how its going to end.
