Bound in chains, Paul’s struggle is internal. He has survived so much—floggings, shipwreck, starvation, stoning, hunger and thirst, cold and exposure—yet as he waits for his appointment with death, he is haunted by the shadows of his past misdeeds. Alone in the dark, he wonders if he has been forgotten . . . and if he has the strength to finish well.
Two men struggle against a determined emperor and the frailties of the human spirit in order to live out the Gospel of Jesus Christ and spread their message to the world.– from movie’s website
The movie also reminded me of things I don’t normally think of, such as Luke never actually meeting Christ on earth despite writing one of the Gospels and that he was a Greek not a Jew. Another reason I was looking forward to this movie was because the actor who played Jesus in the Passion of the Christ, Jim Caviezel, was in it. This movie was not nearly as gory as the Passion of the Christ but the violence and gore were implied and we were shown enough to know what was going on.
Overall, I think it was a great movie and I would recommend it for people to watch.
