Movie Info

You've seen the stories of Abraham, Joseph, and Moses -- and now the story of John the Apostle comes alive on the screen as never before as Richard Harris takes the role of the biblical figure in this effort from filmmaker Raffaele Mertes. In 90 A.D., the Roman emperor launches a fierce campaign against the Christians, and John is being held captive for his efforts to spread the gospel. When a young Christian named Irene arrives with hopes of visiting the last surviving witness of the Lord's passion, John entrusts her with a written record of his divine visions that will eventually form the Book of Revelations. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Audience Reviews for The Apocalypse


Although Domitian's persecution is a bit exaggerated and John's other concerns (such as heresy and complacency) are ignored, I applaud these filmmakers for at least attempting to place Revelation in a historical context. People would find the book less difficult to understand if they would consider its context instead of assuming it was written in a vacuum to or for them directly and personally.

This is a great movie. It literally had me crying. The movie is about the life of Apostle John while he was in prison. It reveals the tribulation he had to go through and how God was by his side. You get to have an inside look of how great God is.
