The Review

A unique adaptation of a familiar story leaves you wanting and wondering. Throughout religious history, the story of the Nazarene that was crucified is widely known and recognized. Different religions question some of the ideas but the base of the idea remains the same throughout most of them. Here we see the story like never before, the names are the traditional Hebrew dialect so they might not be recognizable at first but don’t let that distract you. After the crucifixion, the body was prepared and laid to rest in the tomb. Three days later, the body disappeared. Was it stolen? Was this some elaborate hoax? Or, was the Nazarene correct when he told the people that he’d rise again. As the search goes on, the ones in charge are left to question what the purpose of the quest has become. When the answer appears to reveal itself, it leaves more questions than answers. Though this is a touching adaptation to the story, there are far too many differences to overlook. The basic idea is the same but the way it’s portrayed strays from the text. This was meant to be the story of Jesus through the eyes of an unbeliever. An interesting perspective, for sure. Unfortunately, the story itself just got lost in translation. It’s an interesting conversation piece but not much more.
