Also starring Morgan Freeman and Rodrigo Santoro.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: The last of the summer's movie epics is a digitalized eyesore hobbled in every department by staggering incompetence.
Rotten: Something soulless and empty, with all the mystery and grandeur of the tale just gone.
Rotten: An amateurish effort that boasts direct-to-video characteristics, the latest version disappoints in almost every production aspect.
Rotten: Though it seems unlikely to dislodge William Wyler's 1959 version, its story of a Judean prince (Jack Huston) who keeps running into Jesus of Nazareth (Rodrigo Santoro) offers plenty of action and spectacle.
Awesome movie. Gotta see it. Great movie!!!
I loved this movie. Moved my heart. And I liked the how the story of Christ was put in so well. Different than 1st but better in some ways.
From skeptic to fan!
I was very skeptical of another Hollywood remake, but this movie was amazing. The actors were fantastically cast, the soundtrack beautifully chosen and some of the scenes were legitimately shocking in their large scope. The chariot race ends up being such an epic thrill to see! Amazing work! I preordered today and plan on seeing it again in the theater.
