About the Film:

Paul (Faulkner), who goes from the most infamous persecutor of Christians to Christ’s most influential apostle, is spending his last days in a dark and bleak prison cell awaiting execution by Emperor Nero. Luke(Caviezel), his friend and physician, risks his life when he ventures into Rome to visit him. Paul is under the watchful eye of Mauritius (Martinez), the prison’s prefect, who seeks to understand how this broken old man can pose such a threat. But before Paul’s death sentence can be enacted, Luke resolves to write another book, one that details the beginnings of “The Way” and the birth of what will come to be known as the church. Their faith challenged an empire. But their words changed the world.

My Review:

First, this film was extrememly well-done.  The quality and the acting is incredible.   My husband and I watched this film together.  After watching the film, we both agreed the film starts off a little slow.  But by the end of the film, it really picks up.  I would caution though, you should have a good understanding of the Bible before watching this film.  Otherwise, you may find yourself lost.

Another word of caution, the action becomes hard to follow at times.  If you are not paying attention, you may lose the plot and storyline.  On the other hand, if you know your Bible and especially about the life of Paul, you will find this movie very well-done and true to the writings of Paul.  Many of the words spoken by Paul come directly from the Bible.

This movie is 148 minutes long and is rated PG-13.  I feel this raiting is appropriate given the fact there is some violence in the movie, which reflects actual events depicted in the Bible.  I feel the movie is very well done and follows the Scriptures very well.  The quality of the film is very realistic.  I would defnitely recommend this movie for watching, especially if you have a good knowledge of the writings of Paul.
