Incredibly good movie
It puts a very different twist on a story that is rarely told. The film
is mostly focused on the events after the crucifixion and shown from
predominantly the side of the Romans. It is a faith-based film, but
could be enjoyed by non-believer as well, assuming they can remove the
stick from their butt for the 1 hr 47 minute run-time. Any faith-based
film will automatically get negative reviews and ratings from many non-
believers who will down vote it and even write a poor review based on
their intolerance to religion, but if you enjoy good cinema, this is a
must see. Don't let the IMDb ratings sway your choice to see it. It is
by far the best bible based film I have seen.
Awesome movie. Kind of took me by surprise.
I just came back from seeing Risen, and I have to say, I was actually
impressed. This is a very well made movie. They handled the biblical
story respectfully, while taking creative license in a way that
maintained the spirit and overall message of the gospel. To anyone else
considering making another film based on the bible, please take note of
this film. This is how it's done. No rock creatures to be found here.
Just a wonderful film that tells the story with excellence and dignity.
I absolutely loved this movie, and fought tears during the 2nd half. I
eventually lost that battle, and I heard other sniffles in the audience
as well. So be prepared. (By the way, someone please nominate that
Roman guard in tavern for an award.)
Powerful Acting and Writing Give an Old Story New Perspective
Risen is a well done action movie with strong writing of an old story
in a fresh new way. Please don't waste your time picking apart the
theology. All direct quotes from the Bible were accurate and powerfully
depicted. It is a FICTIONAL account through the eyes of Pontius
Pilate's right hand man (Roman tribune) Clavis. No, Jesus and the
disciples did not hang out with a Roman after the resurrection. We all
know that. It deviates from the Biblical story to show a different
point of view and they do it graphically and with a great connection to
the audience. This movie pretty much picks up where "Passion of the Christ" left off.
They unabashedly told the story from the end of the crucifixion into
the full-on resurrection, into the ascension and traveled with Christ
into Galilee with the disciples all the way to the ascension. Somehow
it was not hokey or silly. They did it well. I highly recommend you go
see it while it is still in theaters. The scenery was beautiful.

Fun and Touching Movie
Risen is a fun movie, with many touching moments. It's faithful to the
original story of Jesus, but also completely different as the story of
a Roman Tribune commanded to find the body of Jesus to quell the new
messiah movement. Jesus is played by an excellent choice of actor, who
is less of a male model look than many movies. Fiennes is awesome as a
man who undergoes a life changing series of events. The basic plot and
conclusion of the film is simple yet profound, and should be
appreciated by believers and nonbelievers alike. The night I watched it
I dreamed about the movie all night, not something which normally
happens. The quality is above most faith-based films and is full of
action, humor, and inspiration for the whole family.
