Review: If you know what the film’s about, or you find this in the halls of church, you should get the reference. For everyone else, it won’t be so easy to identify.

Review: (#1 & #2) These trailers are different, but their aim is the same, present a wholly fictional story of Jesus Christ’s resurrection from the dead and the Roman soldiers responsible for tracking down what they believe is a corpse. It’s relatively manipulative, but the music and cut of the trailers suggest they are trying to make this seem like a very exciting story that gives its Roman characters changes of heart in the end.

Oscar Prospects:

None.
