* AdaptationExpansion: Considered as such if one prescibe to bible-only theology, as many additional details not in the Gospels themselves were taken from Catholic tradition/dogma and literature (Emmerich). For instance, Jesus falling exactly three times while bearing his cross and meeting his mother Mary on the way is straight from the Catholic "Way of the Cross" (''Via Crucis'') also known as the "Stations of the Cross". Much of the [[{{Gorn}} added violence]] is taken from Emmerich. And there are Gibson's own additions.

* AdrenalineTime: When Peter attacks the men arrested Jesus, the speed of the action shifts from normal to [[{{Overcrank}} slow]] with every punch landed by one of the Apostles or their opponents, giving a sense of chaos and inconsistensy while emphasizing the pain of those in the struggle.

A 2004 film produced and directed by Creator/MelGibson, dramatizing the [[PassionPlay Passion of the Christ]] -- the last hours of [[UsefulNotes/{{Jesus}} Jesus Christ]]'s life. All the dialogue is in the ancient languages Aramaic and Latin. The initial cut didn't even have subtitles, though they were added to the theatrical cut on the insistence of test audiences.

Much of it is based on Literature/TheFourGospels, but not all of it; some parts are based on Catholic devotions like the 14 Stations of the Cross and the Five Sorrows of Mary, while other parts are based on recent mystical literature detailing what happened during Jesus' last hours -- [[LudicrousPrecision specifically, the documentations of the visions of a stigmatic Roman Catholic nun named Anne Catherine Emmerich]]. Original accounts were also included in flashbacks to flesh out the relationship between Jesus and his mother, which forms the emotional center of the film.

Infamous because it portrays the sheer horror of what happened to Jesus in unbearably prolonged, bloody and gory detail. {{Gorn}} doesn't even begin to describe the content of the film. Once things start getting bloody an hour in, they don't stop until near the very end.

end. Besides the brutality, the film separates it from other Jesus films with its focus on Christ's relationship with his mother and the centrality of his Last Supper.

Obviously, the film is based on Literature/TheFourGospels, but some scenes take from other sources; some aspects of the film are based on Catholic devotions like the 14 Stations of the Cross and the Five Sorrows of Mary, while other parts derive from the the visions of a nun named Anne Catherine Emmerich. The film also includes wholly original scenes that flesh out the roles of the Virgin Mary and {{Satan}}.
