2004: Though the violent R-rated version is too strong for younger teenagers and other susceptible viewers, there is a PG-13 version of this powerful movie by Mel Gibson, with a striking performance by Jim Caviezel and a heart-breaking but ultimately uplifting ending that stirs the imagination and pierces the heart.
