How could this possibly fit into the Christian Pentscostal culture?
8 December 2006 | by teenageJesusfreak115See all my reviews

The Greek and Christian culture simply do not fit together. There is only one Christian God, there are many in the Greek culture. The Christ God is loving, the Greek gods/goddesses are full of passion, jealousy, hate, and anger. There is no parallel... Although it seemed that the director tried to put a jigsaw together with two different puzzles... it just didn't work. It was confusing. It was boring. It was long. It was boring. It was monotony. It was boring. The pieces simply didn't fit together. Oh, and did I mention that it was boring? It was mixing up Christ with the Greek gods. This just doesn't work and ends up contradicting itself. I had to watch this for school and everyone at my school was bored and confused... I don't think it's worth 90 minutes of your life. Christ is real, not a myth.
