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. – Katie Walsh, Los Angeles Times, Feb 21, 2016

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. – Michael Nordine, Village Voice, Feb 19, 2016

Fresh: Whatever your religious affiliation, you will come away thinking that if all this did actually happen, it probably happened something like this. – Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle, Feb 19, 2016

Fresh: While it descends too often into the melodramatic, it's a solid, smart picture and a welcome addition to the genre. – Tirdad Derakhshani, Philadelphia Inquirer, Feb 19, 2016

Customer Reviews

Tom Felton is an incredible actor

And this film is going to be amazing.


Speaking as a conservative Christian, who actually bought the film I was quite disappointed. Christ and His followers are shown as a moon-struck group who are just out to love everybody. A very superficial take. It was far too melodramatic in the second half to finish watching.
Two stars given because Finnes does a fine job of acting. But then he always does.

You need to see this.

Powerful is the word that comes to mind. I was blown away. The story is of course amazing, fantastic acting, wonderful costuming, scenery, cinematography.... 5 stars all the way. Just rent it, you won't be sorry. Then you can leave a review telling others your experince. I rent about 150 movies on itunes each year. This is the 2nd review I've ever left.
