The miniseries manages to be both thought-provoking and at times emotional, doing well at illustrating common skepticisms of Christianity while also showing Barabbas' own transformation.The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
The film has some very nice moments, but it also has its share of awkwardness, and the director, the television veteran Roger Young, can’t seem to get his multinational cast on the same page or find a consistent tone.The New York Times Full Review
