  3. ExperimentoFilm's rating of the film The King of Kings

    Mel Gibson, eat your knob off. DeMille got there 77 years earlier with the anti-Semitism and EPIĀ© scenes of Passion. A few too many ethereal tableaux in the first-half build-up though, plus some jarring non-Biblical flourishes in the story (comic relief, anyone?). And Jesus was generations older than his mother - who knew?

  4. Howard_Bannister's rating of the film The King of Kings

    This is how I like my bible stories, full of soft focus, schmaltzy reverence and a blonde Jesus who could use a sandwich. DeMille commits to his vision of the life of Jesus as a universal fable, not dogma or history, and sticks to it. The result is a beautiful, consistent telling of one of literature's most influential stories.

  5. McNulty's rating of the film The King of Kings

    We all know that this movie is 100% Propaganda to instill the White Image of Christ into the subconcious of many people in the theatre at the time of 1927. Come on we all know that Cecil B Demille was a Freemason. But for a propaganda film, BEAUTIFUL CINEMATOGRAPHY and SPECIAL EFFECTS for it's time! The SCORE from the Criterion Version is outstanding. What else can I say it was pretty EPIC!
