Watch risen 2016 full movie online free. Follows the epic Biblical story of the Resurrection, as told through the eyes of a non-believer. Clavius, a powerful Roman Military Tribune, and his aide Lucius, are tasked with solving the mystery of what happened to Jesus in the weeks following the crucifixion, in order to disprove the rumors of a risen Messiah and prevent an uprising in Jerusalem.
The movie is a unique and clever fictional re-telling of the crucifixion of Christ as told from the perspective of a non-believing Roman soldier. Joseph Fiennes is in fine form as Clavius and steals the show in the lead role. Some of the cinematography in “Risen” is beautifully shot and is accompanied by an epic musical score.
The story is a bit bumpy at times and lacks in narrative structure as the feature runs under 110 minutes. Although the film contains some good dialog, a majority of scenes are weakly written, which causes the film’s intriguing story to suffer slightly. Kevin Reynolds does not prove to show himself as a great director as he guides his audience through this Biblical tale, but he does do a solid job of delivering some intense, edge of your seat moments and well-executed action sequences. Overall, “Risen” may not be the best fictional re-telling of the Crucifixion, but it is certainly a refreshing take on the greatest story ever told and does not overly preach to its audience, either.
“Risen” does contain quite a bit of violence. However, this is the only content to be concerned about. The sexual content is minor, as we see a few shirtless men wrapped in only but loincloths in a couple different scenes (once in a Roman bath and another during a crucifixion). Pilate asks Clavius what he may desire, including a massage or a girl. Clavius shows no interest in either. When Clavius asks a group of men if any of them know what Mary Magdalene looks like, many raise their hands slightly, implying that they may have slept with her. It is implied that she is a “woman of the street” which is never addressed in Scripture. There is no vulgar or profane language.
