I truly enjoyed this film. I have always liked "Claymation" and this is done very well. The voice actors are also well known, and give excellent performances. My children (who are now adults) watched it when it was on TV. I am so thrilled it is on DVD now, and I can share with my future-grandchildren
I highly recommend this movie for all ages. It was well beyond my expectations!!! I'm in my 60's; a good friend of mine is 40; a friend has young children... its a favourite of each of us... we've each watched it many times (only a few movies have I wanted to watch more than once or twice).
Even the bonus material that introduces the makers of the film & highlights the challenges they faced in making this movie using puppets is very interesting.
This is one of the best movies about Jesus that I have ever seen. Although marketed to children, I have seen this DVD several times as an adult, and found it to be very moving emotionally and spiritually each time I saw it. The artistry, acting, and animation are all superb. But more importantly, this movie brings together the historical and religious background to the story of Jesus, such as the Roman occupation of the Jewish Holy Land at that time, and restores Jesus to His original Jewish context. This is also a tremendous bargan.
