Rating: 2/5 -- If it weren't for Lost Horizon, this would have gone down in history as the Worst Musical of 1973. Full Review

Rating: 3/5 -- Ted Neeley is great but the film never rises to the material.

Rating: 3/5 -- Overall: Some good songs, some interesting choreography, and some utterly forgotten actors.

The music quickly becomes monotonous, and the operatic dialogue is silly right from the start. Full Review

Despite the 'impressive' desert locations and an array of tanks (to represent the ills of modern militarism), it's still staged like a student revue. Full Review

Product Description:

An innovative example of modern techniques in moviemaking, this famous rock opera depicts the last week of Christ's life. Norman Jewison (MOONSTRUCK; IN THE HEAT OF THE NIGHT) directed this thrilling adaptation of Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber's musical, starring Ted Neeley as Jesus and Carl Anderson as Judas Iscariot. Among the classic songs in the film are "I Don't Know How to Love Him," "Hosanna," and "King Herod's Song (Try It and See)." The song score was nominated for an Academy Award.

Plot Synopsis:

Based on the smash-hit Broadway musical, this colorful adaptation tells the story of a group of teenage actors who travel to Israel to reenact the Passion of Christ. The story is told through a lively and engaging series of song-and-dance numbers.
