Despite common opinion, this is by far the strongest movie of the pirates franchise that i watched online. It provides a non-stop combination of fantastic action, endlessly entertaining characters and a terrifying, Lovecraft atmosphere. Johnny Depp Returns as Jack Sparrow and is somehow presented with even Whittier dialogue that is perfectly reciprocated by a cast of suitably confused supporting characters. Davy Jones is an absolutely fantastic villain in both design and execution. The Lovecraft influences are clear and welcomed, and his mere inclusion expands the series ongoing mythology.
Equally terrifying are the cursed crew-members, whose nightmarish appearances push the boundaries of what can be shown in a PG-13 movie, and that’s great. The action sequences are unparalleled within the franchise, from the island escape to the three-way battle to the climactic kraken attack that marks a landmark in monster screen adaptation. The darkly nautical atmosphere is bolstered by one of the greatest soundtracks of all time, courtesy of the ever-amazing Hans Zimmer. Some complain of a bloated run-time with too many characters and plot threads. However, the expanded run-time is ideal for exploring a greater number of character details and subplots. It certainly is confusing at times for the standard viewer, a greater level of concentration and a few re-watches are advised for the greatest experience with this film. I cannot rate this movie highly enough, one of my all-time favorites and the perfect edition to the pirates franchise. Who could have thought that so much could come from a theme park ride.

Better than I expected. I saw this film which is based on Bill O'Reilly and Martin Duggard's book. I am not a huge Bill O'Rielly fan. Overall, it was a good production with good acting by Lebanese actor Hiam Sleiman as Jesus. Most of the actors in top form. The script was more interested in the politics of Jesus' day and how he was perceived as a threat to the power of the elites, both Jewish and Roman. There was a feel authenticity that was good. On the downside there could have been more on the miracles of Jesus, his teachings particularly the parables. Also, where was Barabbas or Simon of Cyrene? The Resurrection sequence was weak too. The strongest part was Jesus being open to the outcasts of society, whether they were lepers, tax collectors, or the woman caught in adultery.

Killing Jesus is all over the place and suffers from confusing scenes with no explanations. The cast is good, the acting is okay but it was not executed as good as it could have been. It is not like the original Jesus story and changes the story. In this film he seems ordinary. It seemed all wrong until one off the priests wants Jesus's tomb guarded because he is afraid that his followers will remove him from the tomb to make it seem like he has been ressurected. Then the message is clear. What if Jesus was ordinary and not divine? Now its interesting The problem is that it is too little too late.

Comparable to the book! Killing Jesus follows the thesis of the book. O'Rielly wanted a historical view of the historical times, which lead to Jesus' crucifixion. Jesus teachings were considered a threat to the establishments money and power of Jesus' times. O'Rielly's movie omits many of the miracles etc, and focused on the historical forces of biblical times and lets the viewer decide his or her opinion on the Son of God question. Killing Jesus mastered the portrayal of Jesus message about a forgiving loving God, and that Jesus was/is willing to sacrifice himself for us. Regrettably, all biblical movies leave room for interpretation and takes liberties of what historical individuals were thinking. A well acted and directed movie with a solid historians view of the crucifixion. 3 and half stars.
