I would highly recommend it.

very enjoyable and moving stop-motion/animated movie condensing the life of Jesus into 2 hours.

Also, the slipping in and out of 3D and 2D animations made the story-flow jerky and disjointed.

This movie has such stunning visuals.

It's not preachy by any means, and very enjoyable.

The switching from claymation (which is not really clay, but that is unimportant right now)to regular animation is stunning, not distracting as it would be in a lesser film.

I really like the Arts and I found this exciting to watch because of all the different styles of movement they were using with all the clay models.

I personally, as a passionate Christian and student of New Testament Theology, find it a moving and engaging presentation, and it is among the DVD's that I'll stick on on a lazy Sunday afternoon: it's fine for the kids to watch (although obviously they don't get much of its meaning), and I'll enjoy it, too.

Enjoyable, reverent, could've been a bit longer....

This was an enjoyable movie from beginning to end.

Worth watching!

The story is compelling and the script is excellent.

With fine vocal characterizations from the likes of Ralph Fiennes (Jesus), Julie Christie (the mother of a young girl he heals), William Hurt (the girl's father), and Miranda Richardson (Mary Magdelene), the film is interesting and entertaining.

It is accurate, realistic, and entertaining.
