Rating: 3/4 -- Jewison, a director of large talent, has taken a piece of commercial shlock and turned it into a Biblical movie with dignity. Full Review
Rating: 1.5/5 -- Surely a candidate for the worst stage-to-screen musical adaptation ever. Full Review
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
The music quickly becomes monotonous, and the operatic dialogue is silly right from the start. Full Review
Rating: 4/5 -- Flawed, but still worthwhile film of the show.
Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
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.
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.
- Shot entirely on location in Israel.
- Color by Technicolor; shot in the Todd-AO 35 widescreen process.
