    I have eventually seen this movie

    Let me start by saying I am not religious at all.

    Not something I would bother seeing again & no great movie (hype over substance)

    Not being at all religious I had no axe to grind. The film has not left me feeling at all religious (despite people trying to thrust leaflets for a local church at me on the exit, which I declined) & I can't see it producing any anti-semetic feelings in christians either (who don't already harbour those feelings).

    The violence, although graphic, was not as bad as I was expecting. Perhaps I take a rather simplistic view of it all , but to me it is a movie that displays the violent inhumanity that we as a species are capable of and it also displays that although the future looks bleak there is hope because we are also capable of great love & compassion for fellow human beings. I don't think a great deal has changed though. If he returned tomorrow & proclaimed himself he would be ridiculed & seen as a threat by people in a position of power who want to protect their position. He may not be crucified now but would probably suffer a similar fate as David Icke.

    I agree with much of what you have said vonhosen.

    But the comparison between Jesus and Icke is a little jaundiced to be fair.

    Yes, especially as there is no firm historical evidence that David Icke ever actually existed. :lesson:

    I can confirm that the film is not in Hebrew and Arabic.

    It is in Arameic and Latin with English subtitles.

    Ah - the infamous "Turin Towel". That's just a mid '80s forgery, supposedly obtained years before when Icke wiped his face on a towel at a track and feld event at Turin in the '70s, an event that experts on a "A Question of Sport" have proven never actually took place.

    David Icke is a myth - live with it!!! :rolleyes:

    Don't forget the infamous signed goalie gloves which, some scholars believe, he wore in the Coventry vs Nottingham Forest match in 1982
