Rating: 4/4 -- The Crucifixion revisited featuring a black Jesus as the victim of a bias crime! Full Review

Rating: 2/4 -- Press releases are promoting the film as 'controversial' before the fact, but compared to such predecessors as 'Jesus Christ Superstar,' 'Godspell' and 'The Passion of the Christ,' 'Color' -- race issue aside -- unspools like a Sunday-school filmstrip.

Many are calling Color of the Cross controversial, but it's really not. It simply states a possibility -- that Christ was a man of color -- which it dramatizes earnestly within the narrow confines of its $2.5 million budget. Full Review

Rating: 2.5/4 -- Director, cowriter, coproducer and star LaMarre is more interested in Jesus' teachings than in his suffering, and suggests that race may have helped shape the course of biblical events. Full Review

A too-specific tale of historic injustice rather than one of divinely benevolent sacrifice on everybody's behalf.

Rating: 2/4 -- ...The first film to depict a black African Jesus is hindered by shoddy production values and so-so storytelling. Full Review

Product Description:

This challenging and controversial film tackles the final days of the life of Christ. But unlike its predecessors, COLOR OF THE CROSS debunks the commonly held belief that Jesus was white. Not only does a black man portray Christ, but this important drama also questions whether he was killed for the color of his skin. Jean-Claude La Marre (MALCOLM X) directs, writes, and stars in this powerful film that gives a picture of the religious icon that has never been seen on screen. Debbi Morgan (WOMAN, THOU ART LOOSED) costars beside La Marre.
