In 33 AD, a Roman Tribune in Judea is tasked to find the missing body of Jesus Christ who rose from the dead.
Roman military tribune Clavius remains set in his ways after serving 25 years in the army. He arrives at a crossroad when he is tasked with investigating the mystery of what happened to Jesus following His crucifixion. Accompanied by trusted aide Lucius, his quest to disprove rumours of a risen Messiah makes him question his own beliefs and spirituality. As his journey takes him to places never dreamed of, Clavius discovers the truth that he's been seeking.
I was intrigued by this film the first time I heard about it simply because it looked like a religious movie with some actual talent and work behind it. It seems like most religious films nowadays simply aren&#39;t very good and are sometimes straight up awful. Fortunately, this is easily one of the better ones. The movie is directed by Kevin Reynolds, who&#39;s probably best known for that Kevin Costner Robin Hood film but also directed the excellent miniseries Hatfields &amp; McCoys. Let&#39;s talk about the story a little bit.<br/><br/>The story starts off at the same time as the crucifixion of Christ (referred to as Yeshua in the movie, played by Cliff Curtis). Clavius (Joseph Fiennes) is a Roman tribune tasked with doing Pilate&#39;s (Peter Firth) dirty work. Clavius&#39;s most recent job is to see that a man claiming to be the messiah of the Hebrews is put to death. He sees that Yeshua is killed and buried but the body soon comes up missing and there are rumors that the man has risen from death. Pilate is worried about these rumors since the emperor, Tiberius, is on his way and he doesn&#39;t want his province to show any unrest. Pilate sends Clavius out to find the body but Clavius soon encounters something that destroys everything he has ever known or thought he knew.<br/><br/>One of the things that separates this religious film from many of the others is the quality of the acting. Joseph Fiennes gives an impressive portrayal as Clavius and carries the movie pretty well. Clavius just seems to be weary of the world in general but he&#39;s especially tired of his position as a Roman enforcer and Pilate&#39;s lapdog. Peter Firth also does a great job as Pilate and gives us someone that we don&#39;t really hate but pity in a strange way. We know that he&#39;s responsible for the death of Christ but Pilate also seems weary of his duties and wishes that he didn&#39;t have to go through with Yeshua&#39;s death and some of the other reprehensible things that he has overseen. Finally, I have to give props to Cliff Curtis for his down to Earth but inspiring portrayal of Yeshua. I feel like this is one of those roles that many actors have taken on but only a few have really done justice to. I imagine that everyone has their own ideas about how Christ should act and it&#39;s impossible to make everyone happy. I personally thought Curtis did a fine job and his Christ came off humble but inspiring, which is exactly how I envision the man.<br/><br/>I tend to appreciate when a movie looks like it&#39;s actually being filmed in an area that looks historically accurate to the source material. The Roman buildings look Roman and the villages at least look like villages. I&#39;m not really sure what kind of architecture was used back then but it certainly got the job done and looks pretty good. There are also some beautiful scenes of the Disciples and Clavius traveling through the wilderness that were very well done. I don&#39;t really have many complaints to make since I generally thought the movie was much better than I thought it would be. I liked the focus on an unbeliever but I thought they tried to shoehorn him in a little too much. For example, he&#39;s the one that saves everyone from the Romans and then he&#39;s the last one to speak to Yeshua before his ascension. I thought that was a little on the nose and took me out of the experience a little.<br/><br/>Overall, I really enjoyed the film and found it to be inspiring. Even if you&#39;re not religious, it&#39;s hard to dislike the teachings of Christ unless you&#39;re a proponent of the Ubermensch or something. I thought it was interesting having the story focus so much on an ex-soldier and unbeliever but it did come off as forced in some parts. Still, that&#39;s just a mild complaint and I recommend giving the movie a shot. God knows it&#39;s better than eighty percent of the other religious films out there.
Released in 2016, &quot;Risen&quot; details events immediately following Christ&#39;s crucifixion. Joseph Fiennes stars as a Roman Tribune, Clavius, who&#39;s assigned the task of finding the Messiah&#39;s body after it turns up missing from the tomb. Peter Firth plays Clavius&#39; superior, Pilate, while Tom Felton plays his green subordinate. Cliff Curtis is on hand as Yeshua (Jesus), María Botto plays Mary Magdalene and Stewart Scudamore Simon Peter.<br/><br/>As my title blurb say, &quot;Risen&quot; is to all intents and purposes the sequel to 2004&#39;s popular &quot;The Passion of the Christ.&quot; Like 1961&#39;s &quot;Barabbas,&quot; &quot;Risen&quot; starts with Jesus&#39; death rather than ending with it and is realistic, somber and brutal in tone. While some elements of the story are biblical, others are fictional – dramatic theorizing within the historical framework. Also like &quot;Barabbas,&quot; &quot;Risen&quot; relays events through the eyes of a total unbeliever, which makes the historical drama compelling for what it is. The movie is also similar in tone and theme to 1959&#39;s heralded &quot;Ben-Hur.&quot; It takes a a generally low-key approach to the material rather than laughably melodramatic, like 1953&#39;s &quot;The Robe.&quot; Obviously, if you don&#39;t like movies like &quot;The Passion,&quot; &quot;Barabbas&quot; and &quot;Ben-Hur,&quot; you won&#39;t appreciate &quot;Risen.&quot;<br/><br/>I remember Fiennes from 1998&#39;s &quot;Shakespeare in Love&quot; where he played the title role. He&#39;s only gotten better with age and is an excellent protagonist here. The guy who plays Christ, by contrast, is relatively weak, albeit serviceable. The scene where Clavius talks with the risen Lord under the stars is well done and the highlight of the film. I also appreciate the depictions of the various disciples praying where they&#39;re more genuine and joyful than rigidly reverent, like in similar movies from the 50s and 60s. Anyone who regularly and sincerely prays knows there are peaks and valleys to the communion. It can be venerable, somber and even ugly (like when you&#39;re venting, confessing or seeking deliverance) or beautiful, joyful and awe-inspiring, not to mention everything in between. In other words, it&#39;s not one-note.<br/><br/>The director, Kevin Reynolds, is known for popular films like &quot;Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves&quot; (1991), &quot;Tristan + Isolde&quot; (2006), &quot;The Count of Monte Cristo&quot; (2002), &quot;Waterworld&quot; (1995) and the Hatfields and McCoys miniseries from 2012. <br/><br/>The film runs 107 minutes and was shot on the island of Malta and Almeria, Andalucia, Spain, which are great stand-ins for the Holy Land.<br/><br/>GRADE: B
Risen is fairly engrossing in its thriller-like section, with Fiennes' restrained performance providing a solid dramatic anchor and the Maori actor Curtis being a nice change from the usual blonde-hair/blue-eyed Jesus. But when the film shifts into inspirational territory it ironically becomes far more prosaic, depicting the miracles in a low-budget, low-key fashion that will hardly win any converts.
