is your reaction about Mel Gibson's movie, The Passion of the Christ?
I thought it was a good movie. No way near as gory as I was led to believe it would be (Tarantino's ear scene was far worse). The only part I didn't think worked was giving Satan a mini-me.
I haven't seen it yet, and I'm not sure whether I want to.
I decided that I wasn't going to see it. I have no need to see such violence and brutality to increase my faith in God or to understand the sacrifice he made for me.

salvation, was glossed over, the resurrection was

Haven't seen it, but I find it amazing that folks get so bent out of shape by a work of fiction.
I'm not a movie goer. I've read a few reviews and marvel at the number of people who seem to feel that the movie is as important as the subject matter of the movie.
Have not seen it yet, so no real reaction.
I think that he is inclined to feel about Jesus the way he wants to, and he is just expressing his opinon/view through acting in this movie.
