Passion Review In Hollywood Reporter

Here is a review of the movie. It is both a positive and a negative review but it contains two interesting statements:

"Indeed, it's doubtful any human being could remain conscious for his own execution were he to endure the level of physical abuse graphically depicted here. "


"More troubling is Gibson's decision to make Jesus into a victim of political intrigue, thus denying him his martyrdom. "

Interesting. I can only think that if Gibson had protrayed Jesus as getting bitten by a radioactive spider at the beginning of the movie, things may have made more sense for this reviewer.
