The Last Temptation of Christ wasn’t a big hit with Christians, although it used Jesus as the main character.

I've certainly heard of that one (I dimly recall the controversy over it at the time), but I've never seen it; I don't think I'd enjoy it. I like my Biblical epics to be old-school! You can have Passion of the Christ, give me Chuck Heston in The Ten Commandments instead!

Yes, and hypothetically had someone made a movie called "Martin Luther King's Real Dream" in which King dreamt not of racial harmony but of being some Mandingo figure with a harem of voluptuous white women as his adoring sex slaves, the movie probably wouldn't have been a big hit with the black community even though it used one of their most admired leaders as a main character.
