Risen Movie Download In Mp4
Roman military tribune Clavius remains set in his ways after serving 25 years in the army. He arrives at a crossroad when he is tasked with investigating the mystery of what happened to Jesus following His crucifixion. Accompanied by trusted aide Lucius, his quest to disprove rumours of a risen Messiah makes him question his own beliefs and spirituality. As his journey takes him to places never dreamed of, Clavius discovers the truth that he's been seeking.
Jerusalem, 33 AD. Clavius (played by Joseph Fiennes) is a senior officer in the Roman army. He spends most of his time putting down rebellions but recently he has been given a different task. He is to be the officer-in-command at a crucifixion and ensure that no incidents occur at or after the executions. When the body of one of the executed disappears from its tomb, his own reputation is at stake and he does his utmost to recover it. The man who disappeared was known as Yeshua, or Jesus...
Risen is directed by Kevin Reynolds and stars Joseph Fiennes as Clavius, a Roman Tribune in the year 33 AD. Clavius was partly responsible for the execution of Jesus Christ, the son of God. When Jesus' body disappears, Clavius is recruited to make sure his followers don't try to stage a resurrection. This film shows his psychological struggle in comprehending the impossible; a man coming back from the dead.
To start, this film is the best interpretation of any Bible story since The Passion of the Christ (2004). What this film does that others have failed to do it get the story right. I've read the story of Jesus' death and resurrection straight from the Bible before, and this movie gets everything right. Nothing about this film is made up, and comes straight from the Bible. Even a few lines are taken word for word from the Bible.
The cinematography in this movie is very noteworthy. The cinematographer and director got the look of the time period right, and did so beautifully. Many wide shots of the desert, or even the Roman occupied city look very nice, especially on the big screen. The look and feel of the environment is very gritty and hot, just like a real life desert would be.
The second good thing about this film is the acting. To start, Joseph Fiennes does very well, interpreting a Roman soldier wonderfully. Clavius' character arc is very extreme and sudden, and Joseph Fiennes portrays this very smoothly and subtle, without making too much of a big deal of it. Tom Felton's character is the opposite of Clavius: he never believes. Whereas Clavius is determined to find the truth about Jesus' resurrection, Tom Felton's character never changes, and he shows this very nicely. I also quite enjoyed some of the comedy between Clavius and Simon Peter, played by Stewart Scudamore. These two actors had pretty good chemistry, and portrayed it well throughout their humor.
The hands down best thing this film offered was the perspective. All films derived from a Bible story are shown through Jesus' point of view, or Moses, etc. This can work out, yes, but after a while, the same retold story gets old, and gets old quick. This film is showed through the perspective of a nonbeliever, one present at and responsible for Jesus' death. This adds an entire new spin on the film, and brings a freshness to the story that hasn't been told before.
The main problem I had with this movie is the pacing. Towards the end, there were about three different times where I thought the movie was over. At one point I even began to get out of my seat. The transition from one scene to another towards the final shot was somewhat off, and set off the viewer, wondering if the film was over or not. Other than that, I had a problem with the character of Mary Magdalene, played by Maria Botto. She is shown at multiple points throughout the film, and then just disappears. Did the Romans kill her? Did she leave the city to teach the Bible to nonbelievers? A few questions went unanswered with her character.
Overall, Risen is a very good interpretation of the death of Jesus, shown through the eyes of a nonbeliever, which I very much liked. I'm going to give Risen a B, or an 8 out of a 10.
I must confess that I am a retired Catholic with strong antipathy towards all organized religion. Having stated that, I can still recommend Risen as a well made and well intentioned film by director Kevin Reynolds. The cast is uniformly excellent, with the lead, Joseph Fiennes as a Roman soldier drawn into the political intrigue at Jesus'(Yeshua here), Crucifixion and resurrection. Peter Firth is Pilate, the ultimate politician and deal maker. He uses Clavius(Fiennes) to track down the body of Yeshua after he goes missing after the required three days. It is, of course, a familiar story to most of the world. Clavius leaves no stone unturned(pardon the pun) in his search for the messiah. He eventually tracks down the twelve disciples and through a series of mysterious events, is transformed into a new man. Separating my own skepticism from the artistic merit of Risen is easy. It is a beautifully shot cinematic experience without the overdone violence of Mel Gibson's Passion of the Christ, an extremely unpleasant viewing experience. Kevin Reynolds kept it simple and straight forward without a preaching tone. Risen is worth your time.
The film, directed and co-written by Kevin Reynolds ("Fandango," um, "Waterworld"), is a nice-enough telling of the Resurrection of Jesus, which at times seems like it also wants to be a Very Special Episode of "CSI: Jerusalem." It's well-made and well-acted.
