Review: I think the studio is hoping that advanced word of the film’s contents will sell it to Christian audiences because nothing about this poster is likely to.

Review: From what I gather, they are turning Jesus Christ into a normal boy who has supernatural powers and uses them without thought, which threatens their livelihoods. Then there’s the Romans who catch word and pursue Jesus in hopes of stopping him. How something so far from the actual narrative of the Bible will appeal to Christians who actually know their Bibles, I don’t know.

Oscar Prospects:

None.
