Back From the Dead: The Best Resurrection Films For Easter
The Quietus , April 9th, 2009 09:45


The Passion of the Christ

Resurrectee: The Christ
Time Spent Dead: 3 Days (supposedly bashing demons in hell)
Means of Resurrection: Body dissapears from under shroud, walks away
Side Effects: Gratuitous CGI stigmata holes in hands.

Although Gibson shows a surprising amount of directorial restraint in The Passion, the resurrection scene reveals his action movie colours. Jesus materialises naked in the foreground and sternly marches away in slow-mo like the fucking Terminator off to take his revenge on those pesky Jews.
