Critic Reviews for Killing Jesus
Some viewers will doubtlessly be moved, but it will be more from what they bring to the table than what has been laid out for them.
Killing Jesus is, for the most part, a missed opportunity, and despite its few good points, you're likely to conclude that, once again, the book was better.
"Killing Jesus" is remarkable in how it captures the devotional Jesus; it is unremarkable in showcasing the radical Jesus, that is, how he upset the status quo of the religious culture of his day
A worthy addition to the canon of Christ films, if not quite touched by divine inspiration.
Rendered without much embellishment and acted with firmly controlled vigor, Killing Jesus, a TV adaptation of the bestselling book by Bill O'Reilly and Martin Dugard, is a fine retelling of the story of Jesus Christ as a historical figure.
Audience Reviews for Killing Jesus
A more realistic telling of a familiar tale is a good thing, humanising the central figure, but not showing the miracles as they do begs the question: "what's the big deal about this guy? He certainly doesn't seem remarkable. Why do the crowds cheer him? Why does the establishment want him killed?" And so this telling had no teeth at the end of it, as if they neutered the efforts at the get go. Nonetheless, Rufus Sewell as Caiaphus manages to hold the entire effort together.
