No particular reason, I just don't want to spend the money and time to see over two hours of extreme violence and gore. I might rent it when it comes out on DVD because at least then I can pause it and take a break if I need to.
I'm just curious what other peoples reasons are for going or not going. Are your reasons religious based?
I consider myself a Christian, but I don't need to see a detailed crucifixion to strengthen my belief. Also, I don't see why anti-Semitism should even come into play with this film. First, it's Mel Gibson's *interpretation* of what happened. Just because Mr. Braveheart thinks this is what happened doesn't mean we should take it as the gospel truth. Secondly, the Christian faith believes that Christ died for our sins. That being the case, why does it matter WHO "killed" Christ?
Maybe I'm just not seeing what all the fuss is about . . . it very well may be a great movie. But it's not a documentary, it's one man's view of an event. I wish people would take it as just that.
