The reason for the movie seems to be to say that racism was an issue in the crucifixion.
That is novel, there is no indication in the Bible that this was so.
It seems to be a rather crude attempt at exploitation of religion for the sake of making a political point.
Or maybe in a strange way, it's trying to bring up old myths ... that catholics hates jews, that all jews are to blame for Christ's death (which the Catholic Church doesn't say), and to some how try to twist that message to say the issue really is about race...
i dont know why, but i get the image of a replay of the old "planet of the apes" movies too. strange side thot
