The Young Messiah: Movie Review

By: Lakwatsera Lovers

The Young Messiah follows the interesting life of Jesus Christ (Adam Greaves-Neal) when he was still seven years old. He is just a regular kid being bullied by little boys but what separates him from them is that he has the power to perform miracles. He can cure the sick and even raise a dead child back into life. These caused a lot of trouble with her mother Mary (Sara Lazzaro) and father Joseph (Vincent Walsh) as they would like to keep a low profile to avoid their little boy from any harm. Soon, as Herod learns the miracles, he performs, he sent Severus (Sean Bean) to get Jesus away from his family. 

The film is quite late to its Holy Week target release, but it is still an interesting feature about the story of Jesus Christ. We often get his life story over and over again, but it's quite new to see his early life and what how he learns to perform different miracles even his parents hide the truth from him. It has that uplifting moments but mostly fell a bit flat as it never reaches that emotional satisfaction that you've might look for in a spiritual movie. 

Following a young Jesus Christ might test your patience, but it is also quite a treat, especially when he is up to something and looks for some answers for his questions. Adam Greaves-Neal is a perfect boy to play as The Young Messiah. He has that innocent look and basically sells the character well. Sara Lazzaro and Vincent Walsh are also great as Joseph and Mary while Sean Bean is a welcome addition to its amazing cast. It's just a bit annoying every time we see the Demon ( Rory Keenan) as we imagine Criss Angel preparing for his next sick magic trick. 

Overall, The Young Messiah offers some fascinating life-events of Jesus Christ that is often told in other adaptations. However, the film sometimes goes to a woeful direction that makes it a bit dull and boring.
