5 The forgiveness of manDVDjensen | 22/03/2008 | See all DVDjensen's reviews (139)First of all I would like to say that I'm not a fanatic worshipper of God and I was doubtful about watching this movie. Films directed by Mel Gibson are normally very emotionally strong and his Jesus film is no exception. It is clearly that this film means A LOT to director Mel Gibson.From start to finish it is an emotionally rollercoaster ride with a great written dialogue, strong gory scenes of Jesus getting tortured, a seducing score and plenty of love! The film is like a big love story. Jesus shows under his torture that he forgives man for its ignorance and for not knowing better. Though he gets whipped, almost torn apart and crucified, he does not once give the impression that he hates man or that he feels sorry for himself. It is all about forgiveness - great!One of the most important things in this film is the score. It is SO beautiful and could not be more perfect, and when it is mixed with the love filled dialogue, you get an emotionally which I don't believe can be found anywhere else.All the way during this film I had tears in my eyes and whenever you are a Christian or not, THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST is a film not to be missed.But take this warning: Though it truly IS an emotionally strong and beautiful love story, then the torture scenes ARE disturbing and upsetting, which makes the film unsuitable for the squeamish.
