Color of the Cross is a 2006 movie that tells the story of the last 48 hours of Jesus Christ's life. The movie was directed by Jean-Claude La Marre, who starred as Jesus, and co-produced by Johann John Jean and Adam Green. The movie begins with Jesus' arrest in the Garden of Gethsemane, and follows his trial and execution by the Roman authorities. Throughout the movie, we see different perspectives on Jesus and his teachings, including those of his followers, his enemies, and the leaders of the Jewish community.

One of the main themes of the movie is the racial and cultural tensions between Jews and Romans in first-century Palestine. The movie depicts Jesus and his followers as marginalized people, who are persecuted by both the Roman authorities and the Jewish leadership. This is particularly evident in the scenes where Jesus is brought before Pontius Pilate, the Roman governor of Judea, and in the interactions between Jesus and the Pharisees and Sadducees.

Another important aspect of the movie is the portrayal of Jesus as a complex and human figure. The movie emphasizes Jesus' emotional and physical suffering during his trial and crucifixion, as well as his doubts and struggles with his own faith. This portrayal of Jesus is particularly compelling, as it shows him not as a distant and otherworldly figure, but as a real person who experiences fear, pain, and doubt.

The movie also explores the themes of faith, forgiveness, and redemption. Throughout the movie, we see characters grappling with their beliefs and struggling to find meaning in their lives. We also see characters who are consumed by hate and anger, and who are ultimately redeemed through their interactions with Jesus.

Overall, Color of the Cross is a powerful and thought-provoking movie that offers a unique perspective on the story of Jesus Christ. Through its depiction of racial tensions, human suffering, and the complexities of faith and redemption, the movie invites viewers to reflect on the meaning of Jesus' life and teachings, and on the relevance of those teachings in our own lives.

Color of the Cross is a 2006 drama. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 2.9 and a MetaScore of 34.
