A depiction of the last twelve hours in the life of Jesus of Nazareth, on the day of his crucifixion in Jerusalem. The story opens in the Garden of Olives where Jesus has gone to pray after the Last Supper. Betrayed by Judas Iscariot, the controversial Jesus--who has performed 'miracles' and has publicly announced that he is 'the Son of God'--is arrested and taken back within the city walls of Jerusalem. There, the leaders of the Pharisees confront him with accusations of blasphemy; subsequently, his trial results with the leaders condemning him to his death. Jesus is brought before Pontius Pilate, the Roman Governor of Palestine, for his sentencing. Pilate listens to the accusations leveled at Jesus by the Pharisees. Realizing that his own decision will cause him to become embroiled in a political conflict, Pilate defers to King Herod in deciding the matter of how to persecute Jesus

"La bala que mató a la hija de Thomas Craven iba dirigida a él. O al menos eso es lo que la policía y el mismo Craven piensan; sin embargo, no es lo que la investigación señala. Pista tras pista y testigo por testigo, la buqueda lo lleva hacia un sombrío mundo donde se intersectan el dinero y la intriga política. Si Craven no era realmente el blanco ahora lo es, junto con cualquier persona involucrada en su búsqueda. Después de ocho años, Mel Gibson toma de nuevo un rol protagónico y nos muestra el sufrimiento de Craven junto con su implacable sed de venganza. Martin Campbell (Casino Royal ) dirige un guión escrito por Andrew Bovell y William Monahan (Los Infiltrados ). Gibson ha vuelto y nos llevará al f ilo de la siniestra oscuridad."--Envase
