Millions of spears will be broken about this film and everyone has to have an opinion of his own. Why? I don`t really know. I watched "National Treasure" a year ago and at that time nobody said: "Oh my god! It`s a film that tells the truth about masonry!" This is a film of art and not a documentary, why would one believe that everything it tells is true? Do you believe that Tom Hanks is a professor of any sort? Do you believe that Audrey Tautou would understand a slightest criptological question? My answer would be: no. Then why would you believe everything around it true? And why does it really matter? As for what it`s known Jesus might have not been a real person at all, then should I care whether he preferred the sandal or the gourd? One can not prove anything that happened two thousand years ago, therefore everything about it is just a speculation. The film itself didn`t have enough motion imho and I also thought it wasn`t controversial enough. Basically the film didn`t make fun of any real Christian values at all, it didn`t even talk much about symbolic sex, then why would I care about it? If I made a film that stated that Jesus was in fact not executed upon a cross but became a travelling used furniture sales agent that would be a scandal. But this? This isn`t a great film of course, for Ron Howard tried playing it too safe with the film but it`s not a worthless either
Visnotaļ dīvaini, ka pa vidu starp divām uz lielu naudu orientētām Dena Brauna romānu ekranizācijām Rons Hovards pamanījās uzņemt "Frostu pret Niksonu" - filma, kas gan atbilstoši Hovarda tradicionālajai pieejai varētu mērķēt uz pāris Oskariem, bet absolūti nerada "pasūtījuma Oskaru filmas" iespaidu.
Atzīšos, ka neko sevišķi grandiozu no šīs Rona Hauarda filmas negaidīju, kā to visbiežāk arī negaidu no "lielajiem" kino projektiem. Nekas, ka tā režisors pagājušogad mums sagādāja lielisko Frost/Nixon, nekas, ka Toms Henkss ir titulēts kā tāds Mihaels Šūmahers. Nekas, ka Hanss Cimmers ir rakstījis mūziku virknei no skaļāko pēdējo desmitgažu filmām. Nekas, ka Dena Grāmatas izpērk tik ātri kā prezervatīvus. Nekas, ka līdzās Henkam šajā filmā piedalās vesela plejāde starptautiski ievērojamu aktieru, ieskaitot Stelanu Skelsgārdu, Jūenu Makgregoru un citus.
