IMPACT: THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST is a marvelous documentary about the impact of Mel Gibson’s THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST. The documentary traces the impact of the movie around the world. IMPACT entertains and informs without becoming preachy, dull or tedious!

Review:

Writer/director Tim Chey has put together a marvelous documentary about the impact of Mel Gibson’s THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST. IMPACT: THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST will open on December 3. It has already been acclaimed by the Renaissance Film Festival and Liberty Film Festival.
To produce the documentary, Tim flew to London, Tokyo, Oslo, Bombay, Seoul, Bangkok, and throughout the United States to film the impact of THE PASSION on audiences. In Norway, he interviewed a neo-Nazi who turned himself in two hours after seeing THE PASSION. The man went from hating everyone to loving everyone, according to Tim. Tim highlights the conversion of several criminals in the United States who confessed their guilt after seeing THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST.
IMPACT also includes brief interviews with some of the key Hollywood people involved in THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST, as well as several media experts – including yours truly, Dr. Ted Baehr.
This is a beautifully produced movie, much better than the ordinary documentary, probably because of Tim’s strong experience in the movie industry. More than the quality of the production, however, Tim has produced a documentary which is very watchable. IMPACT: THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST entertains and informs without becoming preachy, dull or tedious. Well done!
