On Wednesday, I played hooky from work (I can do that I own my own business!) for a few hours to see “Paul, the Apostle of Christ” Movie.
Now, I’m not as eloquent as Bishop Robert Barron’s movie reviews! As a matter of fact, when you watch my Movie Review video, you’ll see how I struggle to pronounce Jim Caviezel’s name..Oh my!
Since this is Holy Week, it made the viewing more real for me. I cried quite a few times during the movie. What a surprise..right!
This is not a fast pace movie…but you won’t be bored. The directoring in this film is excellent. Editing could have been slightly better..that’s my only criticism. BUT the lighting and sound in the scenes really drew you into the movie. There are no theatrics..just story telling. The time flew by and I didn’t want it to end.
Boy oh boy! The ENDING…. very powerful and I just sobbed! I won’t say any more about that!
See the movie during Holy Week. Make it a part of your Holy Week devotion. For faith-based films, this one is so well done. The acting is superb, especially James Faulkner’s performance of Paul.
You leave the movie wanting more. I don’t mean the movie missed its mark, I mean it so well done, you crave to see more of the Bible come to life.
And the movie made me reconsider how I read the Bible. When I came home, I grabbed my Bible and read “The Acts of the Apostles.” This time, I read it from a historical perspective with the movie in mind. For me, reading it as a historical account made much more sense to me. It’s as if the scales came off my eyes and I could see..like Saul. Praise God!
I’ve always struggled reading the Bible. Comprehending the meaning and content hasn’t always been easy for me. Reading “The Acts” had much more meaning this time.
I’m wondering…do you have the same struggle reading the Bible?
Treat yourself to seeing “Paul, the Apostle of Christ”. It’s worth it!
You can watch my Movie Review Video here. And while you’re there, give me a thumbs up if you liked my little video!
Praise God and Happy Easter!
