Movie review: Paul, Apostle of Christ

Okay, so Rotten Tomatoes gave Paul 25%; however, the audience score is 94%. With that in mind, I’ll address those who fall in the 94% group as my target audience.

I had the pleasure of interviewing several people as they left the theater. All gave it an A rating. No one was disturbed by the actual or implied violence, nor by the plot of the movie. Some critics panned *Paul* because of the time period chosen by the writers, who focused on the last days of Paul, rather than the earlier years: when he was first persecuting the Christians, or when after a visit from Christ (on the road to Damascus) he became the number one fan of Jesus. With a character from the Bible as interesting and colorful as Paul, you could choose just about any time in his life and still make a good movie.

The acting was above par, but the directing fell short. There were many scenes filmed in semi-darkness and often times the dialog was unintelligible, making the movie a little less watchable.

I enjoyed *Paul* and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys faith based movies.

Grade: B

RunPee Mom is our emotional bedrock. Without her, we never would have lasted a decade as an app. She’s our cheerleader, a source of unconditional love. She also works cheerfully and tirelessly, seeing any movie we ask of her, writing interesting reviews, and being our…well…MOM. Her genres of choice include kiddie flicks, animated movies, emotional dramas, historical features, war films, diverse biographies, and even dense, diabolically plotted thrillers.
