Gibson: Walk Out If You Don't Like Passion's Violence

MEL GIBSON is encouraging people to walk out of his upcoming movie THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST if they find the violence too much to deal with.

The actor insists the graphic depiction of JESUS' crucifixion in the film is only meant to make viewers realise the extent of his sacrifice.

He explains, "I think it pushes one over the edge so that they see the enormity, the enormity of that sacrifice."

Gibson, who funded, directed and co-wrote the movie, says he wanted the movie to be shocking and extreme.

He continues, "It's very violent and if you don't like it, don't go, you know? If you want to leave halfway through, go ahead."

The movie, set for release on 25 February (04), details the last 12 hours in the life of Jesus, which Gibson maintains is a faithful biblical narrative.
