Other than Jesus, Paul is the most influential person in Christianity. Without Paul, most of the New Testament wouldn’t exist and our understanding of who God is and His nature would still be shrouded in the mystical practices of early Judaism.
In Paul, Apostle of Christ, writer/director Andrew Hyatt attempts to distill the essential story and message of Paul’s life into 100 minutes. The future of Christianity rests in the hands of two men: Luke and Paul.
SONY/Affirms films have put together a great cast to tell this story. This is the “first biblical role for Jim Caviezel (who plays Luke), since The Passion of The Christ. There seems to be a genuine chemistry between Jim Caviezel who portrays Luke and James Faulkner who portrays Paul.”
The behind-the-scenes featurettes show “great pains were taken to maintain biblical accuracy. Using scripture as the only reference, director Andrew Hyatt recreated the story of Paul on film, including the close relationship with Luke, whom at the end of Paul’s life, at his own peril, traveled in and out of the prison carrying Paul’s writings to the community of believers.”
It will be a very beautiful, emotionally very moving film with a rather wonderful ending. —James Faulkner
Without seeing the film in its entirety I can’t really comment on the quality of production but the trailer and featurettes indicate this is a film worth seeing.
