  • Many in the crowd were visibly moved; that's not anything a critic can review.

  • There's something curiously appealing about the reimagining of the story of Easter in the reborn New Orleans... But then the actors open their mouths to start singing.

  • For those who don't mind a little unorthodoxy to their Easter story, The Passion Live delivers heartfelt performances from a talented cast and a surprisingly effective use of secular music.

  • The cameramen were more interested in getting reaction shots from the crowd than following the story.

    I love the idea of putting a modern twist on the story of Jesus Christ. The man who played Jesus did an amazing job, and he has such a beautiful voice. I also love Chris Daughtry, who was a great choice for Judas.
