I guess to start off this synopsis I should introduce myself so people know where I am coming from. I am a young man who is religious but no longer attends church or follows any religion strictly. When The Passion was in theatres I went with my friend and his church to go watch it. This movie was a very touchy subject and left many with many mixed feelings. In my own opinion, I appreciated how Mel Gibson directed this film. I don't think it is accurate to say, " I liked this film." But I can say that I liked the experience that it brought to me because it gave me more insight on how someone may think on the life of Jesus. The Passion, in my opinion, did an exceptional job on showing such hatred, and so much strength an individual can persue if he/she believes in what they are fighting for. Not only this film refers to a huge religious icon in life, but it tells a story that is magnificient and beautiful. Although, there are some people, like my father, who keep on saying that they are not ready to see this movie. I think that this movie brings everything to the table if you believe in Jesus. I hope that I writing this helps out anyone who has been aching to see Passion or anyone who already has seen view it in a better way.
