1. Noah (2014)

Because of the inappropriate storyline, Noah was banned from broadcasting in a number of countries, including Indonesia, and received a lot of criticism among Jews, Christians, and Muslims. Moreover, in Islam, there is a clear prohibition to describe the appearance of the Prophet, whereas here his figure is described as it is.
2. Innocence of Muslims (2012)
In addition to the story in it, the motive for making a film is one of the important reasons the film will be liked or not. Innocence of Muslims, for example, this film was made with the aim of voicing the anti-Islam movement so that it immediately received a lot of ridicule from Muslims around the world.
The film, directed by an Egyptian/American director, is a short film shown on YouTube and contains strong insults to Islam and the Prophet Muhammad. As a result, there were more than fifteen countries that condemned the release of this film, even the director, Nakoula Basseley, was serving a prison sentence for religious harassment.
3. The Da Vinci Code (2006)
Supposedly the detective genre, The Da Vinci Code addresses religious issues at the end of the film, which tells the story of Jesus Christ having a relationship with Mary Magdalene and having a secret child. This clearly immediately caused religious controversy because it was considered insulting and deviating from the Bible.
A number of Christian and Muslim majority countries finally rejected the screening of this film, such as Egypt, Iran, Lebanon, Syria, and many others. Not only that, The Da Vinci Code is also blasphemed by Christians and Muslims around the world.
4. The Passion of the Christ (2004)
The film, which has been repeatedly rerun on TV, depicts the story of Jesus Christ when he was crucified. Showing brutal scenes of Jesus’ torture, this film received a lot of blasphemy and criticism for being considered anti-Semitic or anti-Jewish.
In the film, the Jews are depicted as ruthless figures for torturing Jesus so brutally. Receiving many bans, The Passion of the Christ was not broadcast in a number of areas for fear that it would instill anti-Semitism in the wider community.
5. Submission (2004)
Not a Hollywood film , Submission is a film from the Netherlands which is considered to be insulting to Islam and the Koran. Moreover, there are scenes of naked women showing tattoos of Quranic verses on their bodies. As a result, this film received so much criticism in almost all countries in the world.
Worse yet, the director, Theo van Gogh, was murdered and on his corpse was written a death threat letter to the screenwriter of the film. Really really bad impact, huh!
Raising religious issues is not easy, especially when it comes to visual works that can be seen by people of all ages. The original intention was to entertain, the films above actually fail to consider the value of education and focus on seeking profit. It’s a shame, hopefully in the future filmmakers can use this as a lesson not to do the same thing.
