Synopsis

The story of Paul (James Faulkner), who was converted to Christianity while traveling on the road from Jerusalem to Damascus on a mission to persecute and arrest Christians, when the resurrected Jesus appeared to him and he was struck blind for three days.

When Paul is captured by Roman Emperor Nero, who wants to get rid of all Christians, he's held in the dark, bleak Mamertine prison in Rome, where he's endlessly tortured. His friend Luke (Jim Caviezel) risks his life to venture into Rome to visit Paul, who has been sentenced to death.

  • 2 stars "Disappointed. It wasn't very good. Not loud enough in first part. Then the rest was just sort of Ho Hum. Somehow, I did not get a real feeling about the people being portrayed."
  • 5 stars "I read the reviews on this movie and wasn't sure about going to see it. Yes some scenes were a little dark but the light then was not what it is now. The comments about not being able to hear are untrue. Go see this movie, it is excellent and true to the times and the bible. Don't miss it."
  • 5 stars "This film transcends the genre of movies, to capture the essence of what it took for the earliest believers in Christ (Yahushua / YHWH) to give of themselves to keep their faith and bring through the apostles the gospel to a lost and dying world. The movie was applauded at close, and the theater was left speechless, people had tears in their eyes. This film was truly sobbering and perhaps the closest glimpse into that age outside of reading the Bible; well made and very, very, eriely believable, a must see, a real faith inspiring film considering it is based on biblical and historical facts, an artistic masterpiece that pulls on the heartstrings of faith, and cuts to the marrow of the bone, do you have the faith to lay down your life for eternal redemption? Could you pay the ultimate sacrifice?"
