A must watch movie...this movie was made for believers ;) I loved it! And would watch it again ;) a lot of verses...I came back home to read more about Paul
A powerful story, a next level depiction of what defines a true follower of Jesus Christ. I experienced a revival and a fire to serve and share the Word was rekindled.
We have a monotonous conjectural melodrama for the faith-based crowd that does nothing to reach out to others. It does indicate how a very important seed was planted for the blossoming of Christianity, but is banal where it needed to be charged with passion and a palpable religious compulsion of its own.
Ultimately, the overstuffed, under-dramatized film fails to fully develop the stakes at hand, but it features more thoughtful world-building than most faith-based films, as well as a bracing honesty about the difficulty of reconciling idealistic credos with a harsh and unforgiving world.
It’s an impressively staged, well-acted, thoughtful and faithful telling of the last days of the Apostle Paul — and how Luke risked his life again and again to visit his great mentor in prison and make a written record of Paul’s life experiences and teachings.

Movie Info & Cast
Paul, Apostle of Christ tells the story of Christ’s most influential apostle – a man who persecuted Christians before he converted to Christianity himself. Sentenced to death by the Emperor Nero, Paul (James Faulkner) spends his last days in captivity, struggling to reconcile his faith in God’s forgiveness with his past misdeeds. Joining him in Rome is Luke (Jim Caviezel), who acts as a caretaker while writing a history of the church that will be known for generations.
