Dated, unconventional rock opera has some violence.

Yvonne Elliman is electrifying as Mary Magdalene, and Carl Anderson couldn't have been better as Judas; but Ted Neeley as Jesus is more whiny than heroic.

Flawed, but still worthwhile film of the show.

Overall: Some good songs, some interesting choreography, and some utterly forgotten actors.
