D W Watson5 Stars Out Of 5Well made movie with plenty of action and a moving storyAugust 23, 2016D W WatsonQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4While the story is a fictional account of what COULD have happened after the crucifixion of our Lord Jesus, the underling theme is solid and Biblical. The strong acting carries the story well. There are plenty of action scenes, some of which are very intense and could be disturbing to the younger children. This film is in the vein of "Gladiator" with a strong Christian story.

mountainsAlberta CanadaAge: 35-44Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Well done! Very enjoyable!May 10, 2016mountainsAlberta CanadaAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4This is not just the story of Christ's death and resurrection, like motion pictures such as The Passion of the Christ. It is the story of an unbelieving Roman Soldier tasked with finding the missing body of the Nazarene after his tomb is found empty. This Roman tribune must find the body and prove the resurrection gossip is a hoax.
Instead of a huge cover-up and scandal this Roman soldier finds the Savior.
The movie is compelling in its purpose and scope. The scenery is awe-inspiring and the characters are real to life. This is definitely a movie I would have in my DVD collection.
First, it is basically an episode of CSI: Jerusalem. The story begins as Christ is dying on the cross. Clavius, the Roman soldier arrives on scene to verify, much like a detective or coroner arrives on a crime scene. Then he follows protocol (in excess) to avoid any "chance of a body snatch" by the crazy Christ followers. In a couple days when word gets out that stone has been moved from the tomb, the body missing and the Pharisees panicking, Clavius engages in a man-hunt, digging up corpses, interviewing suspects and witnesses and studying the crime scene to find all the answers.
I really enjoyed the integrity of Clavius, played by Joseph Fiennes. He is portrayed as a valued soldier, high in rank. He is shown to be brutal in his work, but also to have a conscience enough not to enjoy his tasks. He has ambition to move up the ranks of the Roman Army but also states e dreams of "a day with no death".
He seems to find the task of hunting done a dead body to be silly. Yet he carries out his duties with loyalty and purpose. As the pressure to find a body - any body - builds, the viewers can see the dilemma building in Clavius. He sees all the questions unanswered yet pointing to the impossible truth of a man rising from the dead. When he is re-assigned, he asks for a few more days to complete his investigation. He needs to follow the loose ends a little longer. When he finally discovers Jesus and his disciples hiding out he is forced to choose. The real truth, as unbelievable as it appears, or the safest "truth" to protect the Empire.
He abandons his post citing that he has seen two conflicting truths that he cannot reconcile. A dead body he verified with his own eyes and a risen body he has seen with his own eyes. At this he decides to follow Jesus' followers. He witnesses the passion of the disciples, a healing done by the hands of Christ and the ability Jesus has to appear and disappear from any spot. Eventually Clavius speaks directly with the Savior and hangs around long enough to see the Ascension.
