The Passion is no doubt an incredible movie that everyone should see, but i saw the film when i was 11 and i am 13 now and i wish that my parents had waited to show this to me. From the beginning to the end the movie is incredibly intense. It is also very authentic, because the whole dialogue is in hebrew with subtitles. Profanity is definitely not a problem with only one "d-mn you" subtitled. however, the violence is not only overwhelmingly common, but painfully real. Jesus' blood runs like a faucet on screen, and the crucifying scene is terrifyingly realistic. It is an incredible film that you will never forget, but be warned parents and kids, only mature 13 year olds and up should be shown this movie, and maybe not even them. So, if you are looking for an authentic Jesus film, this is great choice, but just remember that it is rated R for a reason.
