‘Paul, Apostle of Christ’: Critics Hate It, the People Love It
by John Nolt
e23 Mar 2018

Those critics who bothered, or who were given an opportunity to review the latest faith-based movie Paul, Apostle of Christ, dumped all over it at a 75 percent rate; the audience score, however, is a healthy 93 percent approval, according to Rotten Tomatoes.

Opening wide in 1,473 theaters this weekend, Paul, the Apostle of Christ stars Jim Caviezel and tells the story of Saint Paul (James Faulkner) who, as Saul of Tarsus, was a fierce persecutor and murderer of Christians. After his famous conversion (31 – 36 AD) on the Road to Damascus, Saul became Paul and, filled with the Holy Ghost, became one of the most important figures in early Christianity. Fourteen of the 27 books in the New Testament are attributed to Paul. He was martyred in Rome sometime between 64-68 AD.

Caviezel, who played Jesus in Mel Gibson’s 2004 record-breaking blockbuster The Passion of the Christ, plays Saint Luke here, a companion of Paul’s who is believed to have written one of the four Gospels (The Gospel of Luke), which tells the story of Christ’s time here on earth. Many scholars believe that whoever wrote The Gospel of Luke also wrote Acts of the Apostles.

Luke is not written as a personal eyewitness account, Acts is.

Of the 20 critics who reviewed Paul, Apostle of Christ, 15 gave it a negative review, which means it has a 25 percent rotten rating at Rotten Tomatoes.



Despite its wide release, the success of The Passion, and last week’s shocking success of I Can Only Imagine — a $7 million faith-based film that has already earned $23 million and currently the second most popular movie in America (beating even Tomb Raider, which was released on the same weekend) — the far-left Los Angeles Times found Paul worthy of only a four-paragraph review that writes the movie off as “ponderous” and snarks at Caviezel as a “suitably serious, Bible-flick-ready actor.”

That criticism of Caviezel from the Alternate Universe, the "far-Left LA Times" should be taken by Caviezel as a badge of honor. Asking someone to review a movie in a genre that they have no interest in nor desire to see is obviously a loser's errand.

I hope I can find a time to see this one.
