Paul, Apostle of Christ – Movie Review

by | Feb 9, 2018 | Theology

Update (26 March 2018): The review is now out! —GPO

Due to a something called a “film embargo,” I have been asked to temporarily remove this review until the film releases March 28. I have never been involved in movie pre-screenings so I wasn’t even aware of this practice!

I will say this: A lot of work went into this film, and I think most of the readers of this site will enjoy the film and my review. However, there are also a few things to be aware of, so perhaps you can stop back here before you see it.

    I love the irony. A typical millennial complains about a movie that moves too slowly in a 2400 word blog post. LOL

    All joking aside, I enjoyed the review. I had some similar comments about ‘Risen’ which I wrote about a couple years ago when I got to see a free screening to that: https://michellelesley.com/2016/02/19/guest-post-movie-review-risen/

    (And I took my daugher and the crucifixion scene frightened her!)
