Movie Info

At the dawn of the new millennium, in the cradle of faith that is Jerusalem, two seemingly mismatched people from different worlds and cultures - Vatican-appointed Jesuit priest Matt Gutierrez (Antonio Banderas) and Israeli archaeologist Sharon Golban (Olivia Williams) - make a tenuous alliance to investigate a find that not only threatens the very foundations of western religion, but also blow apart the region's fragile peace.

    Has a twist ending! Good movie to start a Christianity vs Atheism debate.

    The beginning of this movies sounds and looks incredibly intriguing. The bones of a crucified person found in a tomb, and he could be Jesus! Thats enough to get anyone interested. Unfortunately, everything falls apart after that. The acting is atrocious, the dialogue sounds like its been written by a 12 year old, and the stories interesting premise falls victim to pointless action and chase scenes, with the bones of Christ being tossed back and forth from one person to another This is one of the most terrible films i've seen in a long time, and the only reason i had to watch it, was because it was for religion class. But i'm still pondering the question as to why my teacher chose this film to watch, as it is incredibly stupid

    Great premise, but wasted.

    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.
