Son of God is a 2014 American biblical fantasy movie.
There is nothing new to say here – whenever someone hears a phrase like “Son of God”, he/she would obviously associate it with a historical figure known as Jesus of Nazareth.
The movie falls prey to starchy “sophomoric” literalism, with Jesus’ teachings sounding like carefully rehearsed speeches that politicians are so good at giving in re-election rallies, and the miracles feeling more like cheap, stage-managed magic tricks. With a narrative that is too simplistic and dramatization that’s so inert, it is not possible for the film to pass through as an work of art depicting the life of possibly one of the most well-known personalities to have ever existed.
