Summary:

THE REVOLUTIONARY is a revolutionary look at the greatest story ever told: the life of Jesus. Playing at the TBN Virtual Reality Theater in Henderson, TN, THE REVOLUTIONARY uses a new process which combines a new Sony high definition projection process with 48 state-of-the-art speakers that together give the audience the impression that they are in the midst of the action and not just watching a motion picture. Although it is a powerful presentation of the Gospel, THE REVOLUTIONARY has some technical and artistic flaws. Even so, TBN should be commended for using this new technology for evangelism.

Review:

THE REVOLUTIONARY is a revolutionary look at the life of Jesus. This 51 minute production breaks new ground in entertainment which the Trinity Broadcasting Network calls a Virtual Reality Theater. This theater combines a new Sony high definition projection process with 48 state-of-the-art speakers. Before entering the Virtual Reality Theater, there is a filmed pre-show and a walk through a recreated Via della Rosa where Jesus carried the cross on the way to his crucifixion. THE REVOLUTIONARY opens with the first chapter of John being read over a beautiful star field ending on the shepherds just prior to the birth of Jesus. From this magnificent beginning, THE REVOLUTIONARY presents vignettes from the life of Jesus.

Aside from the technological breakthroughs, the best part of the revolutionary is John Kay Steel who stars as Jesus. He is particularity gifted in making long exposition captivating. Although it is a powerful presentation of the Gospel, THE REVOLUTIONARY has some technical and artistic flaws. Even so, this is a poignant reaffirmation of faith for believers and a powerful presentation of the heart of the Gospel to those who have not accepted Jesus as Lord and Savior. TBN should be commended for breaking new ground, and audiences should flock to Hendersonville, TN, to experience THE REVOLUTIONARY.
