News & Interviews for The Young Messiah
Critic Reviews for The Young Messiah
This uninspiring, borderline inept spiritual drama about the Son of God's formative years preaches to the choir.
This pious drama is a work of minimal imagination and even less subtlety.
Perhaps realizing that enticing nonbelievers into another movie about the life of Christ may necessitate the wild-style of a director like Darren Aronofsky, the filmmakers decided to play it safe rather than risk conservative Evangelical rejection.
Audience Reviews for The Young Messiah
A good story on what the life of Jesus would have been like as a young boy. if you're not a believer, you wouldn't appreciate it.
A different take on a story often told, the Young Messiah fails to have that satisfactory end and feeling of completeness. Slow and merely touching the surface, I wished the film had gone more in-depth on the character. Even though it was an interesting segment on the life of Jesus, the film's overall wholeness was a dip in the shallows.
the Young Messiah after thoughts: very emotional story of the earlier journeys of our Lord. So close to Easter, this was a beautiful telling that gave an intriguing view of what His life may have been like. This was not a complex story with twist & turns leading no where. The film captured the childlike qualities of the boy Jesus & gave a deeper sense of what would be His future. As a Catholic, it was difficult not to feel an attachment to this boy, brilliantly portrayed by Adam G. Other memorable performances: Sara L (Mary), Vincent W (Joseph), Finn I (James) & the rest of the cast! Thank you, Anne Rice for your novel & Betsy G/Cyrus N (screenplay). MUST SEE FOR EASTER 2016! ?????╝?????╝?????╝?????╝.5 of 5 (4.5 of 5)
