SON OF GOD REVIEW (GRADE: A-)
I have to disagree with the mainstream critics here: Son of God is my new favorite film about Christ, and I've seen most of them. I say this not just as a believer, but as a movie critic. It's an imperfect film about the perfect Savior (all films about Him are), but it's sincere and well-crafted. What it does better than any of the others is provide historical and political context, which makes “the greatest story ever told” a thrilling and moving piece of cinema, both for believers and for anyone else who likes compelling storytelling.
