Our Thoughts:

This movie was an epic continuation of the The Bible with it's 12-part mini-series. The bonus features were amazing with the tour of the streets and sets and seeing how the movie was made. I passed this movie along to my inlaws when we finished it and they absolutely loved it!! Highly recommended - especially with the holidays coming up! It would make an amazing gift.
