Jesus Christ Superstar ★★½ 2000

This new version updates the Tim Rice-Andrew Lloyd Webber rock opera for the MTV generation. The musical numbers have a rock video look and feel. The production is based on a stage version and so it doesn't feel or look like a real film. 112m/C VHS, DVD . Glenn Carter, Jerome Pradon, Renee Castle, Rik Mayall; D: Nick Morris, Gale Edwards; W: Tim Rice, Andrew Lloyd Webber; C: Nicholas D. Knowland, Anthony Van Laast; M: Simon Lee, Tim Rice, Andrew Lloyd Webber.
