Dove Review

“The Revolutionary: Epic Version” is a revering and technically interesting film that will capture the imagination. From Jesus walking on water to an angel appearing to the shepherds, the effects work nicely and give the movie a modern feel. The film highlights events in the life of Christ, including: his birth, his temptation in the wilderness, his first miracle of turning water into wine, his righteous anger overturning the moneychangers’ tables, his walking on water during a storm, and his crucifixion.

John Kay Steel does a commendable job playing Christ, balancing a serious side against a man not afraid to smile. His annunciation of words is well executed and the story flows nicely, featuring both teaching and action sequences. We are more than pleased to award this film our Dove “Faith-Friendly” Seal for ages 12+ and five Doves! The age suggestion is due to the crucifixion scenes, though they are not gratuitous. This film will leave you in awe of the life of Christ, no matter how many times you have read it or seen it portrayed!
