Correct me if the title of the movie is wrong =P

Anyways, there's a movie about Jesus Christ produced by Mel Gibson.

Gibson hopes that this movie will make people see about Jesus's sacrifice to pay for all of our sins. (Which I think is very nice of him to do so, knowing that this darned earth there are so many buttholes roaming around)

But some people think the movie is saying the message that Jews are "Christ-Killers". I think people who think this are taking things TOO darn seriously.

I believe Jesus didn't die because of the Jews. He died because of all of us. He wanted to give us a second chance, and he did. That's my opinion O_o; Yours?

Oh, and I'm gonna see it on Saturday, it comes out at February 25. Can't wait to see it, people say its REALLY good

*won't die*

It looks really cool Ima use my allowance to see it.

Its Rated-R though o_o; I heard cus it is a bit tad too strong or sumthing *shrugs*

I'm searching for more information about it on Yahoo!
Oh! I found some info..



2 hrs. 15 min. This film tells the story of the last 12 hours in the life of Jesus (Caviezel), on the day of his crucifixion in Jerusalem. This film's script is based upon several sources, including the diaries of St. Anne Catherine Emmerich (1774-1824) as collected in the book, "The Dolorous Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ", "The Mystical City of God" by St. Mary of Agreda, and the New Testament books of John, Luke, Mark and Matthew.
Release Date: February 25th, 2004 .
MPAA Rating: R for sequences of graphic violence.
Distributor: Newmarket Film Group


Chicago Sun-Times, Roger Ebert
"I was moved by the depth of feeling, by the skill of the actors and technicians, by their desire to see this project through no matter what."

Chicago Tribune, Michael Wilmington
"...a passionate but gruesomely physical picture."

filmcritic.com, Sean O'Connell
"...an exquisite spiritual masterpiece..."


The ratings are good so far! I can't wait

my mom says I should see it WITH her. Heh. She really wants to see it though. It looks pretty good for a grusome(sp?) movie. Heck, it may make more gross than Titanic did. IMO atleast...

My mum's rather interested in seeing it. I just think it's going to be rather controversial... Heh, I overused 'rather.' But I thought the name of the movie was The Passions of the Christ, with an 's' rather than a singular name.

There'll be nudity most likely, sexual insinuations, cursing, and blood... Lots of blood. I don't plan to see it.

hm...i might see it. sound very interesting. but what i dont like, is that mel gibson's father is saying alot of stuff that has nothing to do with Mel and the movie, but people are putting him in this all of a sudden. i heared this stuff on the news.....

anyways, it sound like it's good. especially since it must have lots of blood. but, seriousely, it sounds like a deep movie.


BTW, Oro?

I want to see it (theater or DVD). Around here churches is renting out the whole theater so the church members can all go see it. They say the pre-sells to this movie is only second to Lord of the Rings: Return of the King.

I heard that Mel Gibson was trying to depict that the Romans actually killed Jesus, not the Jews. Well, at least that's what my Dad gathered from the news...O_o;

CaRtoon, please reduce your signature size, it takes up to much of my screen vertically.

Anyway, it is what happened. If people have a problem with that, then they can blame the snake (one guess who he was... btw, don't answer that) who talked Eve into eating the Apple from the Tree of Knowledge and unite with God against him (do not sin for the rest of your existance, that includes after death).

._. We can sin after death? *shrugs as she didn't understand the above post*

I'll almost indefinitely go see this. o.o; In fact, my school is trying to see if the people who are taking Religion this semester can go see it as an excursion. Sadly, I took Religion last semester, but I'd still like to see it. Even if I don't really believe in it, I think it'll be a good movie to have seen anyway.

@_@ I bet my mom'll be too lazy to take me, though.

I saw The Passion about four hours ago, and it still has quite a hold on me. If you want to get underneath it all, you can judge the filming, the script, the acting, etc. But this is one film I don't think I'll ever do it with. If you're a film major or the like, I could understand taking this film apart and looking at it from different angles. But this movie was produced for an emotional response, not a technical one.
When the movie ended, everyone was quiet, and no one left the theater until the end of the credits. Everyone was quiet as they left the theater too, until they got to the Lobby wherein they begin to discuss it among friends and family.
It is really that sort of movie. You do not clap for this movie, but you may very well pray and/or cry at its end.
This is probably the most emotional, heart-wrenching, and horrifying film I have yet to see. It is quite graphic, very brutal in fact in some areas, from when Jesus is being whipped to when he is being nailed on the cross. I could hear people crying or making sounds of anguish around me. I cried myself and had to close my eyes from time to time when the graphic nature of the film became a bit too hard, a bit too real, to take. It is truly a hard thing to sit through comfortably.
The Passion is the sort of film that may shake your religion foundations roughly, depending on your own personal experiences and relationship with God and Jesus. I know it touched everyone in that theater in a uniquely different way.
For a Rated R movie I, along with those accompanying me, were shocked that some families had brought young children with them. For some people, they feel this is something everyone should experience, no matter the age. But from a general standpoint, most people couldn't believe anyone under 16 saw this film....they just could understand how anyone younger than that could possibly deal with this film's content. Heck, I knew some 23 year olds who had a hard time with the film and they were shocked that someone as young as 9 had seen the same movie.
I was really touched with seeing The Passion, and I can imagine that a lot of people are grateful for Mel Gibson having this put onto the big screen. It's the sort of film that will make money (all the theaters in our area are already sold out to Saturday), but it was definitely not made for that singular purpose - which may make it that more meaningful. It was done for the people, for all believers in Christ, and it was great to see groups of friends and family's going in to see it together.

I'm 16 and i still cant belive i saw it twice.

Okay, enough with the caps guys. O_o It makes it look like you're virtually yelling at someone, and.. that didn't make sense.

Anyways, I'm going sometime with my mom to see it. I've heard the same things that blue explained, about it showing a lot of blood and being very brutal. It looks like a very deep movie, and I've heard that it's saved a lot of people. I'm already a Christian, but I've heard a lot of other ones talking about how good of a movie this is.

I heard about it just like you said it on the radio. I really wanna see it, and a lot of people in my family want to too I really hope its like they say. I heard Mel Gibson put all of his money on the film, but he says he didn't do it for fame, but to make people realize Christ's sacrifice

Heres more stuff I found out from Yahoo!

Audience: 17 and up
MPAA Rating: R for sequences of graphic violence.
Profanity: None
Nudity/Sex None
Alcohol/Drugs: None
Violence/Scariness: Extremely graphic and intense violence, including whipping and crucifixion
Diversity Issues: A theme of the movie; some may be sensitive about the portrayal of Jewish elders


See? No sex or nudity. I'm glad

The Official "Passion of The Christ" Website

I got this information from this website...
Yahoo! Info on "Passion of the Christ"

Here's some pictures the movie..








WARNING The following picture has blood in it! IF YOU HATE THAT STUFF, DON'T LOOK BELOW!!!!!!

anyway...his friend is a movie geek and says that it was the bloodiest movie in his life.

Hmmm, talking about this is going to create some problems. I haven't seen the movie but the violence aint that harsh.
If you've only read a couple of portions in the bible, you'll understand that violence was only half of the struggle for Jesus and his followers.
As 4 the Jewish stuff, I dont think that people would make a movie to offend other religions. I live by Washing D.C. & so far nobody has went crazy.

You didn't hear about the angel that turned against God? Michael the Arcangel fought him (he won). If that doesn't ring a bell, I'll give you another hint, he is the reason heck exists, he also talked Eve into eating the Apple...
