Risen

Risen Movie Review

In this biblical suspense drama, Roman soldier Clavius (Joseph Fiennes) and his partner Lucius (Tom Felton) are assigned to squelch an uprising in Jerusalem by locating the crucified body of Jesus Christ. But Clavius soon undergoes a crisis of faith when he witnesses miraculous events during the course of their investigation. Directed by Kevin Reynolds

“[the] film adopts a lighter, more playful tone than most Hollywood biblical epics…unlikely to ascend to the upper echelons of faith-based cinema, culturally or commercially.” -Justin Chang –Variety

“lacking the visceral intensity of that Mel Gibson film and not offering much of interest to the secular crowd, Risen isn’t likely to rise very far at the box office.” – Frank Scheck –The Hollywood Reporter
