Audience Reviews for Jesus (The Jesus Film)


This particular film is used regularly by Christian missionaries across the globe and has a very straightforward approach to the story of Jesus. It is the ultimate tale of salvation, but somehow, this film makes it utterly forgettable.

This was an average flick and a sub-par Jesus film. The scenery was great, the story was not. It was confined to just the gospel of Luke and left out way too many details. I prefer the comprehensive Jesus stories that bring as much to the table as possible.

A solid effort, especially for the time it was made. However, probably not as "accurate" as many claim it to be. There's no way of knowing the full context of what was really going on, but this is a nice attempt nonetheless.
