|Reviews for ‘Son of God’ paint very bad picture|
The review for the upcoming ‘Son of God‘ are in and it’s bad news! As of today, the film currently has an average of 4.5 out of 10 on Rotten Tomatoes – which compiles the leading reviews in the country. The film is torn apart by most of the biggest critics in the country, even those who raved about Passion Of The Christ. Elizabeth Weitzman of New York Daily News says “…not even Jesus can transform ‘Son of God’ into a compelling epic“. Cameron Meier of Orlando Weekly said “Pilate predicts that following his death, Jesus will be forgotten in a week. Though those words proved preposterously untrue, they somehow seem fitting for this film.” Ouch!
Son of God is a film culled from footage rearranged and expanded from the TV mini series hit The Bible. The most common theme among the reviews is that it looks like this film was made for TV and should have stayed there. Another common critique is that this is an obvious cash grab by the studio to market to Evangelicals and watch the money flow in.
Son of God opens in theaters tomorrow, February 28, 2014.
