I just finished watching Son of God which was produced by Roma Downey (she also produced the mini-series, The Bible) and Mark Burnett. This film follows the life of Jesus from His birth through His crucifixion.
I thought the first section, which included many of His miracles, His teaching, and calling the disciples seemed choppy and disjointed. Many scenes were incomplete and not in the correct sequence. Of course, one problem is, if you are quite familiar with the Bible, you quickly notice everything that seems different, or not quoted exactly right. Of course, in fairness, it is difficult to boil down several years into an hour. I understand that, and nothing was misrepresented.
I found the portion from the Passover, including the Last Supper and Crucifixion much better and closer to the Biblical text. Many of the scenes were moving and realistic (yes, I shed a few tears). The resurrection and things that took place for the following 40 days, were once again compressed with some things being left out.
The acting was excellent, especially Diogo Morgado as Jesus and Greg Hicks as Pilate.
VERDICT: I would give it 4 stars. It would be a good choice to watch during Lent, reminding us of the suffering and sacrifice Christ endured for us.
