Melson Gib is not the most subtle director. At least he didn't cast himself as Jesus, although I'm sure he would have liked to. This smacks of hyperbole and self-importance. It takes itself far too seriously. I much prefer the Monty Python approach to the crucifixion. The pathetic fallacy bit at the end was just a bit too much. I bet Melson Gib couldn't thread a camel through the eye of a needle: he'd be way too ham-fisted. He didn't make Jesus a very sympathetic character; more arrogant and stubborn. What if he was just a looney like those who claim they're him today?
Nugget: pretentious title, pretentious film.
