Critic Reviews for Color of the Cross
Color of the Cross, a low-budget re-imagining of Christs final days, makes a big deal out of the relatively tame suggestion that Jesus was black.
Filled with close-ups of Jesus and his apostles (all the better to hide the absence of elaborate period sets), mixing quotes from the Scripture with flat exposition, this low-budget affair is earnest and, alas, more than a little bit cartoonish.
A too-specific tale of historic injustice rather than one of divinely benevolent sacrifice on everybody's behalf.
...The first film to depict a black African Jesus is hindered by shoddy production values and so-so storytelling.
Lacking the drama of Jesus' trial and the passion, as well as the substance of his teachings, (actor Jean Claude) LaMarre's turgid take has very little to offer dramatically or inspirationally.
Audience Reviews for Color of the Cross
The single best portrayal of Jesus I've ever seen by an actor, but the single worst Jesus movie I've ever seen. This movie was dull, and uninspiring. But the role of Jesus and his acting were incredible. Worth sitting through just for that.
this move was a bit slow but told a intering point of view, it make some clear remarks about today myths and the lies we follow around wit reliongion, however the film did not discredit any other race or believes only call they out for what they are from what they have shown the world. If u and get over the colors in this film them u will see that it is still the story of Christ and his hardships that man placed in his favor and how he took it all for us.
