On the onset of the film, we meet Jesus Christ (James Caviezel) at the Gethsemane garden praying that His Father the King should take Him through the misfortunes about to face Him. There is a satanic figure lurking in the shadows, making the series of the temptations and doubts vivid. This figure says that no man can bear all the sins of the world, something that is impossible. When this fail to work, we see Judas coming and selling him to the Temple guards.
Jesus is chained and taken to the high priest to judge him. There are several people we meet, the Pharisees and leading priests who question him if he is the Son of God and he did tell them that he is. This led to his mocking, hitting and spitting on him. They then take him to Pilate, to be killed.
Though Pilate finds no fault in him, he had him hit with a whip. Lack of tenderness, total brutally begins here. All these happen until the crucifixion.
The genius use of various styles like flash-backing of Jesus takes the audience to another world. In general, the movies has been ranked one of the best films ever. The film illustrates and reviews that Jesus is the Biblical Messiah and if you believe that, then you will understand the passion of God.
