RISEN – the first forty days after the Resurrection of Jesus Christ is told through the eyes of an agnostic Roman Centurion charged by Pontius Pilate to investigate rumors of a risen Jewish Messiah and locate the missing deceased body of Jesus of Nazareth in order to subdue an imminent uprising in Jerusalem. During Centurion’s mission, his doubts of such a supernatural occurrence peel away as he encounters the Apostles and other historic biblical characters and bears witness to the legendary storied events that followed the Resurrection. A great mystery unfolds during Centurion’s quest to find the body and he is deeply affected by his first-person investigation, as his previous beliefs on the matter are forever altered based on what he’s now witnessed.

Q-Tips say: We liked it. Being raised Catholic, we enjoyed the movie. Mrs. Q says: It seems as if it is a what we would call now a days a “CSI” movie. Searching, investigating until the mystery is solved. A nice change from the “cursing, blood, violence” of most of today’s movies. It does have violence but the violence is what happened at this time of history. There is always some “nut-ball” who wants to take over the world. Probably not for everyone, but we enjoyed it.
