    Insane production! Excellent score, though not sure if it's original. Overall one of the more "watchable" among silents, especially given it's content. I'm glad I watched this! 7 years 2 months ago

    What an EPIC!! How could D.W. Griffith do this in 1916? 7 years 4 months ago

    The ultimate epic. It doesn't get any bigger than this, not even in the 50's.
    The Jesus and Bartholomew stories are not that great, but the Babylon and Modern stories make up for it.
    An outstanding film. Light years ahead of other films from 1916 (as is the case with any film by the Father of Film, D.W. Griffith).
