Critic Reviews of "Risen 2016"Toronto SunFebruary 23, 2016
It's nice to finally see the Messiah portrayed by somebody who'd probably get extra attention at a U.S. airport by Homeland Security.Los Angeles TimesFebruary 21, 2016
"Risen" is a fascinating cultural artifact, but as a film, it's destined for no glory greater than as an appropriate cable rerun on Easter.New York Magazine/VultureFebruary 21, 2016
For a film that could have easily become bogged down in Sunday School reverence, or culture-war opportunism, Risen presents an intriguing, oblique approach to a Bible movie.San Francisco ChronicleFebruary 19, 2016
Whatever your religious affiliation, you will come away thinking that if all this did actually happen, it probably happened something like this.Village VoiceFebruary 19, 2016
Despite not doing much more than preach to the choir, Risen is still more nuanced than the lion's share of recent faith-based dramas.MTVFebruary 19, 2016
It's pointed about how we treat today's zealots, as when Clavius likens the pain of crucification to "sucking air through a wet cloth" - a description of waterboarding.Punch Drunk CriticsJanuary 09, 2017
Risen is certainly a step up for this genre, and it's more open-minded than you would expect. But this is still a movie made for a captured Christian audience, and it will be those viewers who will like it best.Film Ireland MagazineDecember 14, 2016
There's nothing terribly wrong with Risen, and I'd happily watch it on television some lazy Sunday afternoon, but there's just not enough here to keep it from being, ultimately, a pretty forgettable movie.Chesapeake Family MagazineAugust 02, 2016
Risen isn't a film that will convert nonbelievers, but it's more ambitious than the standard faith-based genre fare.RTÉ (Ireland)July 19, 2016
Risen is a reasonably decent movie, ideal for a young teenage audience. However, most adults will see it as little more than a reasonably clever whodunnit spin on the Resurrection.The Blu SpotMay 23, 2016
While Kevin Reynolds does try to do something a little different with Risen than we're used to seeing, it ultimately can't overcome its shoddy pacing and uneventful storyline, turning this into a rather forgettable biblical outing.
