Risen 

 

Christian movies continue to improve, develop, mature, and grow. Risen has given me the confidence that a movie series could be done on the Future Glimpses books. Risen tells the story of the resurrection from the Roman perspective. This non-believer Clavius sees Jesus dies, and is tasked with finding the body of Jesus after the resurrection. Problem is there is no dead body to find.

SPOILER ALERT! One of the best scenes in Risen in my opinion is when Clavius sees Jesus Christ alive and well. He struggles with what he has seen. How can he deal with the reality that he saw the man dead, and yet alive again. I also got chills down my spine when the guard tells the story of what really happened. It fits the facts, unlike the lie the Pharisees tried to spread.

Families need to be aware of some of the content found within Risen. There is blood, death, violence, and a battle. We learn about Clavius from the beginning. He is a soldier who prays to the false god Mars (Roman god of war). He has to answer to his superior Pilate. He is constantly dealing with zealot Jews, and killing them. He also sees his soldiers die in battles from the zealots.

The acting and the music in Risen is stellar. I really loved some of the dialogue in Risen. Family Friendly Gaming was provided the Blu-ray version of Risen for this review. The bonus features on the Blu-ray disc are Deleted Scenes, The Battle of the Zealots Deconstructed, The Mystery of the Resurrection Making Risen, Creating A.D. Jerusalem, Script to Screen, and Feature Commentary.

Risen is a powerful movie. I love the detective nature it takes. I love the questions that come from Clavius. Thankfully the blood, and the battle are a short part of Risen. I appreciate the focus of Risen staying on Clavius. It was a joy for me to watch and review Risen on Blu-ray. I am thankful Family Friendly Gaming was provided a copy of Risen on Blu-ray.
