COMMENTS: THE FILM RISEN IS THE STORY OF THE RESURRECTION OF JESUS CHRIST ,TOLD THROUGH THE EXPERIENCES OF A ROMAN TRIBUNE NAMED CLAVIOUS. CLAVIOUS IS ASSIGNED THE RESPONSIBILITY TO INVESTIGATE THE RUMOURS OF A RISEN YESHUA ,WHO IS THE MESSAIH OF THE JEWS. AS CLAVIOUSINTERACTS WITH THE DISCIPLES OF CHRIST ,HE LEARNS MORE ABOUT CHRIST AND HIS MISSION. IN THIS PROCESS, AND CHRIST IS REVEALED TO HIM, CLAVIOUS FINDS HIMSELF ON A SPIRITUAL JOURNEY OF SELF-DISCOVERY

THE MATERIAL CONTAINS COMPLEX AND MATURE THEMES WHICH FOCUS ON ISSUES OF FAITH, BELIEF, SPIRITUAL INVESTIGATION, CRUCIFIXION, WARFARE, TORTURE, RESURRECTION, AND HONOUR. THE MATERIAL IS PRESENTED WITHIN THE CONTEXT OF THE HISTORICAL BIBLICAL ERA. THERE IS A POSITIVE MESSAGE OF FAITH AND SPITURIAL CONVERSION, AS WE WITNESS THE 'PAGAN' CLAVIOUS STARTING TO BELIEVE IN THE RESURRECTION OF CHRIST. THE NEW TESTAMENT CONTEXT OF THE FILM REDUCES THE OVERALL IMPACT. ALTHOUGH THE THEMES ARE COMPLEX AND MATURE ,THEY ARE HANDLED IN A SENSITIVE MANNER WITH NO HARM. HOWEVER CHILDREN BELOW THE AGE OF 10 YEARS MAY BE CONFUSED OR DISTURBED BY SOME OF THE ISSUES WHICH ARE EXPLORED ,SUCH AS THE COMPLEX ISSUE OF RESURRECTION . THE THEMES ARE UNLIKELY TO CAUSE ANY MORAL HARM TO CHILDREN OF 10 YEARS AND OLDER.
