Critic Reviews for The Body
A heartfelt and powerful examination of faith that no serious student or enthusiast of theology or philosophy should miss
All we've got for most of the picture is philosophy, something which doesn't work very well on the silver screen.
"The Body" posits a truly fascinating and thought-provoking idea and then wraps it in absurdity.
Audience Reviews for The Body
Antonio Banderas is a priest sent by the Vatican to verify the remains of a body thought to be that of Christ. Cue half-arsed discussions on theology, much hand wringing and some cobblers about arab terrorists who want to kidnap the bag of bones for reasons not explained. In turns dull and absurd, it's nothing but a dreary workmanlike thriller that's poorly directed and cheap looking. A waste of time.More
