I was pretty much right about The Passion.

At least in regards to effective and final cause of the Crucifixion.

I was strangely unmoved by Jim Cavaziel's portrayal of Jesus. He was more of a cipher, a blank receptacle for suffering, than a full character, let alone the Incarnate Word and source of all love.

It's not a bad film, but it's not a great one, and it's not one worthy of its subject matter. Sorry, Mel.
