Reviews - What do customers think about Jesus Of Nazareth (2 DVD)?
"A definite enjoyable product!" Aug 29, 2007
This is really a fine product in which I purchased from a very reliable seller. It is in excellent condition and it arrived quickly! It is a great movie and plays fantastic. This film is unquestionably suitable for an entire family viewing. Thanks a million!
Excellent treatment Aug 19, 2007
This is an over 6 hour treatment on the life of Jesus. The motive seems to be to bring to life the stories in the Gospel and nothing else. They're not trying to advance far-fetched alternative theories (Last Temptation of Christ, DaVinci Code, etc) and this is refreshing. When there's dialogue not in the Gospels, it's to support not to contradict what's in the Gospels. It's very well acted, especially by Powell in the lead role. Ernest Borgnine is just great in a small supporting role as a Roman Centurion- he does more with facial expressions than most actors can do with 10 pages of dialogue. This is something that is exctremely long but well worth the time.
A Changed Life Aug 14, 2007
I was 14 when I first watched this amazing movie. (43 now) All I can say is that it has changed my life forever. The image of Jesus was burned into my memory and the sudden realization, in those tender teenage years, was that Jesus loved ME, and died for ME! I was overwhelmed by it all and the tears flowed. From that very moment I knew that there was more to life, and I began to fervantly read the Bible, in a quest to learn more about this Jesus. As I look back, now almost 30 years later, I see that watching this film was a real pivitol moment in my life, that has brought me into a personal relationship with the One who freely gave himself for me; and that relationship has grew and deepened over the years. So, to make a long story short, I suggest that if there's anyone who is looking for real meaning and purpose to their life... watch "Jesus of Nazareth"! You won't regret it. :-)
This is THE one to own! Aug 10, 2007
I've watched virually every movie and mini-series that has tried to capture Jesus' life ... or "God" in general. As much as I love "The Ten Commandments", and the "Passion of the Christ" is great in its own way, "Jesus of Nazareth" can't be beaten in 2 ways. It hits all the major life events you would expect in a story of Jesus' life, and it's supporting cast is unmatched. James Farentino as Simon Peter. Anne Bancroft as Mary Magdelene. James Earl Jones. Laurence Olivier. Ernest Borgnine. Stacey Keach. James Mason. Anthony Quinn. Christopher Plummer. And Robert Powell as Jesus actually drew a tear or two when relaying life messages we're all familiar with fron The Bible. This is a great addition to any collection, and if you plan on only owning 1 movie about the life of Jesus, you can't go wrong with "Jesus of Nazareth"!!!
It doesn't get any better Jul 25, 2007
I've watched many, many movies attempting to tell the story of Christ and this is by far the best there is. You learn something each time you watch it. This movie gives you what you want, whether it is just an overview of the story or the details of his gift to us, his very life. Watch it in sections, giving the story time to really sink in-it can certainly change your life-
