The movie "The Passion of the Christ" was, for the most part, Biblically accurate. There are a few scenes in which "artistic license" was taken, but it was within the scope of the Biblical account....

As other commentators have noted, the movie is largely historically accurate: For me, however, the one element which was omitted was the sense of isolation and forsakenness (If that's even a word!) which Our Lord must have felt as the sense of His Father's presence was lost.
Certainly the physical agony of the passion was graphically portrayed in the movie, but this aspect - which must have formed the greater part of His suffering - was hardly even hinted at.

The movie, like many other movies, is based on true biblical story. There are scenes which might be difficult to accurately present. Overall, the passion of the Christ is close to the bible, but it cannot replace the bible. Bible remains the authority for Christian life.
