Roger Ebert

This is the most violent film I have ever seen.

The Atlantic

As a motion picture it is simply shallow and overwrought, a clumsy bludgeon designed to provoke strong responses but not thoughtful ones.


Mel Gibson's interpretation of the final 12 hours of Jesus' life has already generated much talk, anticipation and controversy.

Eye for Film

One of the most fascinating and empathetically painful films I've ever had to watch.


The film is about is Jesus' physical suffering... Gibson's film may or may not be 'good,' but it unquestioningly succeeds in doing what it set out to do.


Philosopher Peter Kreeft called it the 'most beautiful movie ever made'

Rotten Tomatoes

While the scenes we are witnessing are graphic and difficult to watch, there’s no denying the immersive experience that Passion brought to the screen.

The Passion doesn't suffer from the airless, pious airs that drag down most biblical dramas: It has a muscular, pounding energy and lyrical, almost gothic beauty.
