    Everyone says "oh you can really see just how much pain jesus went through for our sins, just for us nasty ole people!!"
    Indeed, that seems to be the point of the film.

    I dont think the J-man would have wanted any punk to have to see a movie to bring this home to them, surely the basis of Christianity is having faith, and knowing we don't have to put up with being nailed to a cross cos Jesus did it for us, he died for us. Anything else is just self indulgence IMO.

    I don't believe Jesus was the son of god or anything, which means I am not a christian, but this kind of thing makes me wanna go serious Buddhist.

    One thing though:Killer Mel put his money where his mouth is and it paid off. Props.

    gonna safe my opinion on this one, wanna keep religious people breathing. I'll put it in a healthy context:
    :soap_box:
    instead of saying it's antisemetic religious hollywood exploitation ;)
    conclusion; go see a film like elephant or lost in translation
