Also starring Morgan Freeman and Rodrigo Santoro.



  • Good Movie!

    I'm judging it on it's on merits. I simply don't know how some of these "Top Critics" come to their opinions! I'm not comparing it to the original although that might be wrong since it's borowing the name. It's actually a really good movie! Beautifully done! It kept my attention and kept me entertained. I loved the message and how it ended. What more can you ask for!

    I give this movie 100 stars!!!! It kept me glued to the screen! The actors did great despite what haters may say the actors were very believable! so much so that by the end of the movie when the brothers forgave each other I was crying like a baby, it takes a lot to make me cry! The plot was was much better than the original! The cross scene was very moving! I could say much more about this movie but I think you get the point 😋
  • Great remake!

    I love movies like "300," "Gladiator," etc. Figured this would be smilar after watching the trailer. It was (just not as good), my issue is they kept weaving in Jesus-y BS into the movie. Way too much Jesus stuff for my taste. It really wasn't even necessary. Throughout it was Jesus preaching, Jesus calming a crowd (several times), and then at the end, crucifying Jesus. For a minute it felt like I was tricked into watching "Passions of Christ." I am glad I only rented this movie, but I wish I could complain and get my money back. I get it, Christians believe in Jesus, to each their own. But it was a turn off for this agnostic. It was way too preachy when it could have just been about a family/revenge/roman sports/etc. Hopefully this review saves some one else a few bucks if you aren't wanting Jesus shoved down your throat.
  • Awesome!

  • Great acting!

    The original was my all time faverit movie ever made. Charleston Heston took acting to a whole nother level. I waited to watch this for too long and just knew it would never hold up to the original. I was wrong, It was not better. But it was just as good! Great acting, good script. In the beggining there was to much talking, but it helped to understand more of the story later. So as it starts off fast it gets better as it goes. Watch and ye will see. ;)
  • Wonderful!

  • Spectacular Scenes but More Important Storyline

    Good messages of love. Dialogue actually added the strength to the movie....unlike so many with super special effects supported by little message in movie....which is just fine too, but, not here.
