Can you believe AMAZON is actually advertising this film? That's a disgrace! Gibson is going to become a multi - billionaire when this is done - but maybe not - because of the language thing. You can't read and look at all the gorry mess at the same time.

I'm never going to see this film because I wouldn't give him a dime of my money, and I don't like Jesus films. They're scary, and give me nightmares. Who wants to watch someone bleed to death on a cross? Not me. And besides, if the Jews did kill him - which they didn't - they would have stoned him - they didn't believe in crucifixion. It was the Romans, Stupid! The Passion of the Christ

The film follows Jesus from his betrayal by Judas after the Last Supper through his condemnation of death in Jerusalem, and ultimately to his crucifixion. The screenplay for The Passion of the Christ, by director/producer Mel Gibson and author Benedict Fitzgerald, is adapted from the accounts of Christ's last hours as depicted in the Biblical books of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. The film is subtitled, with all the characters speaking Aramic and Latin, the actual languages of the time, and was filmed entirely in Italy.

The Passion of the Christ opens Wednesday, February 25, and is rated R for sequences of graphic violence.
