Movie Info

"Bloodline" follows documentary filmmaker, Bruce Burgess, into the so-called "bloodline conspiracy" that claims Jesus Christ married Mary Magdalene, who escaped to the south of France following his crucifixion, with their child. Over three years in the making, "Bloodline" is the first investigation to uncover new evidence: a buried wooden chest with artifacts that date to first century Jerusalem and a tomb with a mummified corpse draped in a shroud bearing a red cross.

Critic Reviews for Bloodline

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (3)

The sensationalistic documentary Bloodline explores the supposition that there exists a lineage traceable to Jesus and Mary Magdalene.

May 9, 2008 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

This nutty assemblage of art-history analysis, secret-society intrigue, amateur archaeology and paranoid thriller will be appreciated best by Da Vinci Code buffs and armchair conspiracy theorists in homevid and tube play.

In his investigation of the legend that Jesus survived crucifixion, married Mary Magdalene and fathered children who married French royalty, British director Bruce Burgess claims to present new evidence--including the mummified body of Mary Magdalene.

Bloodline is quite enjoyable -- just be sure to take it with a full shaker of salt.

Daft documentary [is] both exhausting and exasperating.

Audience Reviews for Bloodline


It's an incomplete documentary with no real conclusions and not a lot of science behind anything they found, but I was interested the whole time and parts of it were absolutely frightening.
