I was disappointed by this film being a fan of Martin Scorsese. It created quite a controversy when it was first released but I can’t really see why. It was far too overlong and was lacking in cinematography to keep my interest. The whole production seemed exceedingly moderate considering the dramatic intensity allowed by the storyline.

There is hardly a more dramatic a story than the life and death of Jesus Christ. However there were some interesting re-interpretations of Jesus Christ’s character. He was humanized in this production. Made into a man rather than a God. While this makes for an interesting theme, it was still not enough to save this production from its slow pace and irritating characters.
