Pardoned instead of Christ, Barabbas is haunted for the rest of his life. After watching his former lover, Rachel, being stoned to death for her belief in Jesus, Barabbas returns to his life of thievery. Arrested again, he is sent to the sulphur mines and then to gladiator school where he witnesses yet another friend give his life in the name of the Nazarene. It is only at the end, when Barabbas himself faces crucifixion, that he discovers his faith.

Old style movie reminds me of ones that came out in the 40's. I could not watch it lasted 10 minutes and turned it off. The high ratings must have come from very religious people who eat this stuff up.

A great and adventurous film that explores one of the lesser known people from the Bible. Jack Palance is fantastic as an arrogant and unlikable chariot driver.

Anthony Quinn is Barabbas who witnesses so much and yet doubts until perhaps when it finally counts.

Barabbas dies upon the cross just as did Jesus who was rejected by the people in favour of the murdering, stealing Barabbas.
