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}}.

** Similarly, unlike artistic canon, some historians argued that victims of crucifixion [[http://www.patheos.com/blogs/filmchat/2013/04/history-and-tradition-in-movie-depictions-of-the-cross.html only carried the cross-beam]], not a whole cross. Places of crucifixion like Golgotha would have had permanent standing posts where the beam would be attached as necessary. A few earlier Biblical films like ''Film/FromTheMangerToTheCross'', ''Series/JesusOfNazareth'', and ''Film/TheLastTemptationOfChrist'' already had depicted Jesus carrying only the beam. But again, Gibson decide to accurately depict the Passion according to artistic tradition. The two men crucified besides Jesus, however, carry only the beams.)

He spends the movie slithering through the crowds persecuting and torturing Christ unnoticed by anyone but Big J and his mother, the two people who are most responsible for the Passion that ultimately undoes the corruption brought on by the Devil. By the very end, he is too powerless to do anything but scream at the heavens.

* ColdBloodedTorture: The caning, scourging, public humiliation, and then crucifixion of Christ is depicted for over an hour with bruises, bones, open flesh, and blood in plain view of the camera. Gibson himself said that the REAL Passion was [[UpToEleven EVEN WORSE]]

* AdaptationExpansion: Half-blind children biting Judas's flesh weren't in the Luke or John, but Gibson thought it was important to include. His other additions are less demonic, especially the flashback showing the Mother of God making fun of God the Son's wonky homemade table and Mary's memory of picking up the infant Jesus as she watches her son fall under the weight of his bloody cross.

* AdaptationDistillation: Of the Passion accounts in TheFourGospels in the Bible, and by extension Catholic traditions of the Passion.
* AdaptationExpansion: Many additional details not in the Gospels themselves were taken from Catholic tradition 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".

* AntagonisticGovernor: Pontius Pilate, the Roman im charge of keeping the peace in Jerusalem, condemns Christ to his Passion. Unlike other portrayals of him, which show him to be a brutal dictator, he is only interested in maintaining the peace in Judea, even if that means sentencing an innocent man to death.

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.
