This fast-paced film about Jesus, made with high definition technology, shows his life and teachings in an arresting and attention-grabbing way. From his birth to his death and ascension, viewers will retrace Jesus’ footsteps and see his miracles and ministry depicted as never before on film. Shot entirely on location in Israel, “The Revolutionary: Epic Version” will take you back almost 2,000 years, reliving the dramatic events that changed the course of human history—and mankind’s eternal destiny—forever.
“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!
