Stereotypical, but entertaining.
2 March 2004 | by RouflerSee all my reviews

The film is set after the death of Jesus, and because of this it makes interesting viewing as you see different angles of the religious situation at the time.

The acting and script is laboured at times, but there's a nice bit of female eye candy (Barbora Bobulova) to keep your attention.

It is shown in two 1hr30min parts. The first being the better of the two as a lot more goes on. The second part becomes a bit tedious, and the ending is disappointing.

It's certainly not "Jesus of Nazareth" standard but it's not a bad film, especially the first half.

I would recommend this film as an interesting follow on for a Jesus film that ends with his crucifixion.
