We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Excellent film, tho the scenes w Jesus and the disciples are somewhat sappy. The Romans are very well depicted, and some good action scenes. Good to take a boy to instead of the usual mushy "female" type yukky reverential film that put off anyone w half a brain.
Boys at least 8, maybe 10, depending on whether they have older sibs. Only kids or oldest kids i'd tend towards the older age, as they have been more sheltered by parents, and there is violence. One of my kids in first grade sobbed for days after being shown a particularly gruesome video of the Cricifixion. (That may not have been a bad thing). This has dead bodies. The themes are going to go over a kid's head, but they will enjoy the battle scenes and way cool Romans. Also a view of the Holy Land. Middle schoolers will be able to appreciate the central issues of to whom do your loyalties belong, and when do you go against your group for something you believe in. A very good film for youth groups. Especially because of macho hero who kids will think is cool.
