This Rotten Week: Predicting Non-Stop and Son of God Reviews
Rotten Watch Prediction
Here's the official trailer for Son of God in case you haven't seen it yet...
Son of God is actually just a condensed version of the History Channel’s ten part miniseries "The Bible". They cut it down to a couple of hours and threw it up on the big screen. One thing Christians (and really all organized religions) are good at is getting that money, son. If you already have the footage you need, get people who could have watched it for "free" to pony up the bucks to watch a shorter version of it the theater. Amazing really. Interestingly enough, this is pretty much also the business plan for much of religion in general. So, nice work.
In making our prediction for the film's potential reviews, we already have a bit of a road map. The Metacritic score for the miniseries was about 44%. Can we expect the film to be much better? It’s doubtful, though even if you feel like the editors only included the very best parts, how much better in critics eyes can we realistically expect this to be? I’d contend not too much. But a hit at the box office? I bet it makes a bunch of money. Jesus going to make it rain at that box office.
