Passion too violent -- Telegraph

The first British review of The Passion of the Christ is concerned that the film is too violent for viewers to stomach. Thanks to Helenann Hartley for this link from BBC News which quotes from the review by John Hiscock in the Daily Telegraph:

'Violent' review for Gibson film
A newspaper film critic has questioned whether adults will be able to stomach the violence in Mel Gibson's imminent movie The Passion of the Christ.
He wrote: "For, worthy and serious as Gibson's treatment may be, his blood-drenched depiction of the final hours of Jesus' life is harsh and brutal, dwelling almost entirely on pain, suffering and torment."
