That's my 2 cents anyway
But if he is invested in government, women's health care and such wouldn't be vested in a movie that is supposed to tell His story??

And according to Seattle Seahawks quarter back Russell Wilson, God cares about the Superbowl..

I'm very familiar with Russell wilson all the way back to nc state.

I just don't get into either the proselytizing or the mocking on the topic. Kind of bores me.

Movies are entertainment and I leave it at that. And I'm a Raiders fan, tattoo on leg and all. So I'm really not interested in a Seahawk!

He has told His story already. The movie is unnecessary.

I was reluctant to see it simply because most of the recent Hollywood movies of this genre have been so off the mark. Without ruining the movie for those who plan to see it let's just say I was pleasantly surprised. It didn't seek to preach or to offend and disguise it as artistic interpretation of the Biblical story (i.e "Noah"). Rather, for me anyway, the take away was how a person's journey through life can lead down an unexpected yet satisfying path.

We went to see it, and it was ok. Of course the Bible does not speak about such 'investigation' but its an interesting idea. The fact that the actor for Jesus was Pablo Escobar, the cocaine trafficker, in another movie was a little strange.

He was also smiley from training day, tiktik from 10000 bc, firelird ozai from the last airbender and he's Travis on fear the walking dead. Lol

I like him as an actor.

Thanks for the feedback everyone

Wikipedia
Risen (2016 Film)
Plot
Clavius, a powerful Roman Tribune, is charged by Pontius Pilate to investigate the rumors of a risen Jewish messiah and to locate the missing body of Yeshua (Jesus of Nazareth), in order to quell an imminent uprising in Jerusalem during the first 40 days following Christ's resurrection.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Risen_(2016_film)

Since the plot of the movie is entirely fictional and is based on no scriptural or historical events whatsoever, how can it possibly be claimed that the movie "mostly got things correct?" The best that might be said is that the film nicely corresponds to what Christians imagine such a task would be like. The movie is essentially a work of Christian fantasy.

Just reading what was in the review. I guess it's a good thing that they have nothing crazy like King David making an appearance, or Genghis Khan, or something. They seem to have actually gotten the story of the fact that he was crucified and the body disappeared correct.

It does raise the question of why Pilate, who turned the body over to Jesus' followers in the first place, would bother tasking a Roman Tribune with determining what happened to it?

Why did I know that somehow this would take a religious/non-religious direction vs whether it was worth seeing in a theater or wait for Netflix.

Lol
