British actors Joseph Fiennes, Tom Felton and Peter Firth go Roman in an earnestly clunky biblical drama that proves, more than anything else, that Hollywood executives believe there's a market in "faith films" -
The Passion of the Christ
having set a blockbusting precedent in 2004. Fiennes and Felton play Roman officers ordered to look into the mysterious disappearance of Christ's body after the Crucifixion. Firth plays the prefect who orders their investigation, but this potentially interesting "CSI: Judea" stuff is speedily ditched in favour of Fiennes's conversion to Christianity and some routine miracles. The director (and co-writer) is Kevin Reynolds who, in higher-profile days, directed
Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves
and he applies a glossy finish that elevates the film. However, he aims it squarely at moviegoers in the American Bible Belt which means there isn't as much time spent raising questions before Fiennes discovers religious enlightenment.
A Roman officer and his assistant are charged with investigating what became of Jesus' body following the crucifixion, as the Roman hierarchy fears stories of a resurrected Messiah may lead to an uprising in Jerusalem. However, what they discover during their search forces them to question everything they believe. Biblical drama, starring Joseph Fiennes and Tom Felton.
