About the Movie
Risen is the epic Biblical story of the Resurrection, as told through the eyes of a non-believer. Clavius (Joseph Fiennes), a powerful Roman military tribune, and his aide, Lucius (Tom Felton), are tasked with solving the mystery of what happened to Jesus (Cliff Curtis) in the weeks following the crucifixion, in order to disprove the rumors of a risen Messiah and prevent an uprising in Jerusalem.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: "Risen" is a fascinating cultural artifact, but as a film, it's destined for no glory greater than as an appropriate cable rerun on Easter.
Rotten: Despite not doing much more than preach to the choir, Risen is still more nuanced than the lion's share of recent faith-based dramas.
Fresh: Whatever your religious affiliation, you will come away thinking that if all this did actually happen, it probably happened something like this.
Fresh: While it descends too often into the melodramatic, it's a solid, smart picture and a welcome addition to the genre.
I absolutely love this movie! It gives such a unique view of what went on during Christ’s death, burial, and resurrection! I also love that it focuses primarily on the days following Jesus’ death. Clavius’ journey is so inspiring, and it is defiantly a film worth seeing!
Just saw this movie last night. Gives one such a good feeling regarding ones faith. More movies like this are needed. Highly recommend this for any individual who doubts GOD's LOVE..
Mediocre at best
I saw this in the theater and was incredibly disappointed. The acting was terrible and the movie was embarrassingly cheesy. I found myself giggling on multiple occasions, most notably during the interview with Bartholomew. The idea to tell the resurrection story from a non-believers perspective is such an incredible idea with so much potential but sadly this one falls flat on its face.
