    What in Heaven’s name do you mean by “seemingly sincere” actors. We thought the cast, including the lead, were excellent. This movie is better than you graded it.

    Michael, I wish that you had not at all compared Son of God to Mel Gibson’s The Passion of the Christ in your review. And specifically Diogo Morgado to Jim Caviezel That was not fair. Similar subject matter but 2 entirely different movies. My family has seen and loved both and so we just cannot understand your 2 1/2 star review. 3 stars – yes. 2 1/2 stars – no. “Seemingly sincere” actors, a film that “never rises to the level of inspiration or indelible artistry” as the Passion and an overall “reverent but no revelation” movie. I have loved you to death for years, Michael, and I know how much you love faithful Christians but the ghost of your old liberal Democrat elitist former self came out in this review.

    I thought 2-1/2 stars is right on and I was thinking about Passion of Christ also as I watched, especially after Jesus was arrested. My biggest complaint was that the Son of God appeared to be surprised at times by events. My God always knew what was coming and is never surprised. Perhaps the thought that best summed up how I felt about the movie was my general philosophy of “Don’t go to the movie if you really liked the book.”

    I saw this movie and enjoyed it. It was a great, and not at all what I expected. I especially enjoyed the scene of the old woman with senility answering a question about why some people live so long. Priceless.

    I pretty much agree with the 2 1/2 star rating or maybe just a 2! I also compared it to Passion of the Christ and it is not at all on that level. The beginning seemed to jump from scene to scene without much connection and the Jesus figure for the most part seemed too lackadaisical to me. I did like the ending and was left with a better feeling than the first part of the film gave me. (I’m wondering if the comment above refers to the “God’s Not Dead” movie. I recall a similar scene in that, but may have missed it in “Son of God. I did love the God’s Not Dead movie and totally recommend that!
