Gibson's passion is all over this film...but his resorting to mawkish, superficial tactics blows the tone off-course from time to time.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4

With a passionate zeal and the budget to back it, Mel Gibson has created a religious epic which is equally unique, inspirational, and repellent.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

By giving us the feeling of experiencing Jesus' thoughts, and by making us privy to his prayers, The Passion draws us toward Christ's full humanity like no film before.
| Original Score: 2.5/4

Mr. Gibson has plucked at the rawest of nerves yet I cannot blame him. He is expressing himself through the medium of film and using the text of his bible as the basis.

A tormented movie about torment; loopy, over-reaching and occasionally suspicious. Simultaneously, it is a daring artistic endeavour.

One of the best films of this middle-aged decade.

Il est intéressant de voir que le film s'attarde surtout à démontrer la mesquinerie de l'homme plutôt que de glorifier le christianisme.
| Original Score: B

I don't know how non-believers will react to this, but for me it was an affirmation and strengthening of my faith.

Whatever else it is -- however flawed we find it -- The Passion of the Christ is a work of art.

An ambitious, great, and flawed film ... [it] reminds us that this man never quit loving us, never quit forgiving his enemies, even as they tore him to shreds.

Mel Gibson, the Lord love him--and I believe He does, has succeeded in producing the first major motion picture ever that is both spiritually and historically challenging.

A magnificent story well told...For most Christians the crucifixion has become sort of a cliché, something they know happened without really appreciating what agony it was.
Full Review | Original Score: 10/10

It's like a bloody Renaissance painting come to life. But the DVD is a disappointment.

A powerful, artistic expression of one of the most pivotal moments in the Christian religion.

'Bien filmada, mejor actuada y sólidamente dirigida. Vale la pena todos y cada uno de los centavos de su producción y del costo del boleto de entrada.'
| Original Score: 3.5/4

Dead languages and horrific violence aside, this is a film everyone should see, whether they hold any religious beliefs or not.
| Original Score: 89/100

A work that is as horrifying as it is beautiful, as disturbing as it is gratifying, and as powerful as it is controversial.
| Original Score: 4/4
