*Warning: Potential Spoilers*
Risen has been put in a very interesting position as a movie- on the one hand, even people who aren’t religious generally know the story of Christ’s crucifixion. On the other hand, even extremely religious people stop there and go back to the beginning of the story or to his teachings in the middle. What Risen has done is to tell us the story of what happened in Rome after the tomb was sealed and the officials thought the scandal was over. Even more interesting, the story has been told from the perspective of a Roman guard, a nonbeliever who is tasked with solving one of the biggest mysteries of all time.
