The Atlantic

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

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.
