The first time I saw this movie was in the theater, and just like everyone before me, and those who viewed it with me, nobody moved until the credits were finished. The Passion of the Christ is an awe inspiring movie that shows the cruelty of the Roman soldiers in the crucifixion of Jesus. Nobody likes to think about how badly beaten Jesus was. We know what scripture says, but we hurry to the best part - the resurrection. There was no hurrying to the resurrection with this movie. It really brings home what Jesus was willing to go through for our salvation. The movie is in Arabic with subtitles in English, but I didn't mind that. I don't think anybody did who watched it with me. This is a Mel Gibson film. Jim Caviezel played Jesus. If you have not seen this film, I fully recommend it. Thanks for reading. Picture is mine.

My husband (then boyfriend) and I saw it in the theater and the place was packed!!! I don't know why I felt so compelled to see it as I'm not religious. I guess it was my Catholic school upbringing. It was very well done. Not for the faint of heart. It definitely made an impression. It was heartbreaking to see Mary watching Jesus carry the cross. I don't think I'd want to watch it again though.

For the same reason mentioned by @ TheHorse - I read the reviews and decided this wasn't a show I would feel comfortable watching - because on the whole I never ever watch movies where people are seemingly being tortured, I am faint hearted . I read about the crucifixion and what Jesus suffered, but I won't want to watch it. There was a man in South America who got a heart attack while watching that show. The other thing is about Mel Gibson - in real life he is a very troubled soul . I have avoided watching some of his other movies too because he seems to go over the top with blood and gore.
