Paul, Apostle of Christ

Critics Consensus

Paul, Apostle of Christ proves a well-intentioned yet disappointingly diffuse interpretation of a Bible story whose flashes of potential never come close to living up to the source material.

Movie Info

Paul, Apostle of Christ is the story of two men. Luke, as a friend and physician, risks his life every time he ventures into the city of Rome to visit Paul, who is held captive in Nero's darkest, bleakest prison cell. 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. But Nero is determined to rid Rome of Christians, and does not flinch from executing them in the grisliest ways possible. Bound in chains, Paul's struggle is internal. He has survived so much--floggings, shipwreck, starvation, stoning, hunger and thirst, cold and exposure--yet as he waits for his appointment with death, he is haunted by the shadows of his past misdeeds. Alone in the dark, he wonders if he has been forgotten... and if he has the strength to finish well. Two men struggle against a determined emperor and the frailties of the human spirit in order to bequeath the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the world.

Audience Reviews for Paul, Apostle of Christ

  • Jun 25, 2018
    Paul: Apostle of Christ is an inspiring film about the trials and tribulations faced by the early church. As the Apostle Paul awaits execution the Church of Rome sends for Luke to help him and get his guidance on whether they should persevere in the face of Roman persecution or flee the city. Jim Caviezel gives an incredible performance and is backed by a strong supporting cast, including Olivier Martinez and Joanne Whalley. And the film has a powerful message about overcoming hate with love and sacrificing for one's beliefs. Also, the sets and costumes are especially well-done, helping to create an authentic feel for the time period. Still, there are a few narrative issues, with Paul's backstory being awkwardly inserted in flashbacks throughout the film. Yet despite having a few weaknesses, Paul: Apostle of Christ is an extraordinarily compelling biblical drama.
