Loved this movie. Not a bright and happy one, yet I found it to be one of Richard Harris' great roles. This is by no means a cheaply done film.
Worth watching.

The year is 90 A.D. and the Roman Emperor has unleashed a virulent campaign against the Christians. Held captive by the Romans, the aged apostle John struggles to save Christianity from extinction by sending letters to the Christian communities. Driven by the wish to meet the last living witness of the Lord's passion, the young Christian Irene succeeds in gaining access to John's prison. Entrusting the written record of his visions to her, he begs Irene to spread its message among the Christians. These visions form the contents of the Book of Revelaton. To some, they evoke the end of the world; to others, they allude to the spiritual struggles facing Christians of all eras.

this is such a beautiful movie portraying the last days of St. John. Beautifully made.

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.

Richard Harris, in one of his final film appearances, plays the elderly apostle John in exile on the island of Patmos, where he experiences the apocalyptic visions that later comprise the book of Revelation. The producers deserve credit for placing the book in its historical context, with Emperor Domitian's persecution of the early church. It's let down by uneven acting from the supporting cast, cheap looking special effects, and scripting issues. It's doubtful that early Christians would have exclaimed, "Oh my God."

If you look past the cheesy special effects, the film is pretty stirring and nicely puts the Book of Revelation into historical context. Thank you Richard Harris (and a special treat-performance by Bruce Payne).

This was a good movie but I am sure some of their doctrines were off too. I was crying at the end of it though and I wasnt paying as close attention to the beginning as I did in the end.

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.
