He [Andrew Hyatt] dilutes the dramatic impact of the events that shaped the man he was to become.

The film is atmospheric and don't expect rich togas, this is plain homespun here.

A somber, moving portrait of one of the early church's most significant figures, who led the way at a time when Christians were being burned alive in the streets of Rome, or condemned to death in the arena.

This drama is based on the Bible.

"An impressively made and portrayed story of forgiveness and faith during a time of fear and persecution."

Chalk this dreary biblical drama up as a worthy companion piece to Mary Magdalene.

The cinema of Holy Week does not necessarily have to be a hair shirt for the eyes, but this film is and with viciousness. [Full Review in Spanish]

Though there are a few subplots involving healing, miracles and First Century Roman politics which usher in some dodgy acting, the substance to be found in the main story... is undeniably of interest.

Watching this amazing film about history and drama will remain in your mind and thoughts days after seeing it in the theater. Don't miss it.
March 31, 2018
Curiously staid and undramatic... wordy and somber rather than propulsive, thereby minimizing the urgency of Paul's life in contrast to what it portrays as his ultimate message of hope and forgiveness.
March 30, 2018
Well-crafted and solidly dramatic, the film rises above recent shoddy, preachier Biblical renderings.
March 29, 2018
One of the film's greatest strengths is its visual execution, which bathes characters in dramatic light and shadow.
March 29, 2018
Instead of an informative film about the greatest ordinary man in the history of Christianity, this is a complete fiction about his last few weeks on earth, about which nobody knows anything, with a silly Hollywood B story thrown in. Greatly disappointing
March 27, 2018
Largely devoid of sensationalism, a film that delves quietly into substantive issues of belief and forgiveness.
March 24, 2018
Impressive performances and production values but stuffed-to-the-gills with plot, the Bible film might have flourished more as a TV series.
March 23, 2018
Thanks to the smaller moments between various character pairings, "Paul, Apostle of Christ" ends up working. (Full Content Review for Parents - Violence, etc. - also Available)

Fresh. Barely. Some Christian movies are very good. Others have more in common with Hallmark TV channel movies. This one lies somewhere in between.
March 23, 2018
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.
March 22, 2018
A handsomely-mounted production with good performances and minimal dramatic tension.
March 22, 2018
A faith-based, snuff flick with little appeal beyond the Bible-thumping demographic.
