It's a straightforward, unimaginative narrative, and thus not very memorable.
The sad truth is that director Philip Saville and writer John Goldsmith have made a picture book rather than a film, one that leans so heavily on Christopher Plummer's placid voice-over narration as to be cinematically inert.
Events unfold as chronological vignettes, and there's little room for screenwriter John Goldsmith to reimagine scenes to mine their full dramatic potential.
Turns out to be surprisingly robust.
I found this Gospel long, dull and, for the most part, acted without apparent inspiration.
Although it might test the patience of the non-believer, for those who take their Christianity seriously, this probably is worth seeing.
The "Word made flesh" has now become the Word made visible. In an age of visuals, it might just attract many who would never take the time to read John's gospel.
...a mild, willfully inoffensive film focusing on Jesus' message of love.
A slugglishly painful, uninteresting film that might be of value to New Testament students who don't like to read words unless they come with pictures.
Whatever this is, it sure isn't cinema. There's no adaptation, no reconfiguration of the material from one medium to another.
Henry Ian Cusick creates a persuasive Jesus, a savior as happy as often as he is solemn.
An artful, well-made production.
This is the most beautiful film about Jesus that i´ve seen.
