About the Movie
Paul, who goes from the most infamous persecutor of Christians to Christ’s most influential apostle, spends his last days awaiting execution by Emperor Nero in Rome. Paul is under the watchful eye of Mauritius, Mamertine Prison’s ambitious prefect, who seeks to understand how this broken old man can pose such a threat. As Paul’s days grow shorter, he feverishly works from prison to further the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and embolden his followers to stand strong in their faith against Roman persecution far greater than has ever been seen.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: "Paul, Apostle of Christ" struggles to find a compelling entry point to a critical period in the early Christian church ...
Fresh: 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.
Rotten: A few minutes of thriller-like tension early on gives way to a lot of tediously scripted scenes of whisper-acting that rarely breathe life and humanity into what should be a potent turning point story in a religion's history.
Fresh: Largely devoid of sensationalism, a film that delves quietly into substantive issues of belief and forgiveness.
A Moment of Grace
This is no mere film; it is quite simply a moment of Grace.
For those who believe no explanation is necessary.
For those who do not, no explanation will suffice.
What a well done movie! I was not expecting much judging by the previews for this film but I was pleasantly surprised by the acting and dialogue from the script. Definitely recommend.
