Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"I found it patronising and embarrassing."
‑ Philip French, Observer [UK]
"There is a raw, primitive response to Christ in this film, despite all its community theatre window-dressing. I loved its spirit of a fanfare."
‑ Antonia Quirke, Financial Times
"Its cheap visual effects, blaring sound, dreary pace and aggressive attempts to modernise the story are unbearably gimmicky."

"[McKean] keeps things visually interesting and exciting, overlaying images and using the occasional separately filmed segment."
‑ Phelim O'Neill, Guardian
