Critic Reviews for The Passover Plot

All Critics (2)

If Jesus came back today and saw this film, he'd get right back on the cross, because, even for him it would be too much to bear.

Despite kicking up a religious storm, the film is amateur in its production, disappointing, bland and uninteresting.
