Critic Reviews for Barabbas
Problems of dubbing and pacing and a lack of scene-to-scene variety weigh the movie down, but Christopher Fry's pointed and intelligent free adaptation of Pär Lagerkvist's 1950 novel resists grandiloquence.
Like Fleischer's oeuvre as a whole, it's ripe for reconsideration-the Greatest Story Ever Told has been Retold and Retold, but Barabbas brings it back from the dead.
An extremely underrated Biblical epic.
Audience Reviews for Barabbas
Lacking the Circus Maximus spectacle of its famous predecessor, Barabbas compensates with nuanced acting from Anthony Quinn.
Barabbas is a beautiful work of Fleischer and Quinn. One of the most exciting and terrific Biblical films. Fresh.
My Favorite Anthony Quinn Movie.A Biblical Epic that I usually like to see around Easter, he plays Barabba's who is Pardoned instead of Jesus, & how that effects his life & makes him into a Better Man.Bravo
