Paul, who goes from the most infamous persecutor of Christians to Christ’s most influential apostle, spends his last days awaiting execution by Emperor Nero in Rome. Paul is under the watchful eye of Mauritius, Mamertine Prison’s ambitious prefect, who seeks to understand how this broken old man can pose such a threat. As Paul’s days grow shorter, he feverishly works from prison to further the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and embolden his followers to stand strong in their faith against Roman persecution far greater than has ever been seen.
Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: Paul, Apostle of Christ proves a well-intentioned yet disappointingly diffuse interpretation of a Bible story whose flashes of potential never come close to living up to the source material.

Common Sense Says
Biblical drama has bloody violence, lacks depth.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Paul, Apostle of Christ is a faith-based drama centering on the titular Biblical figure. It's very violent, with an emphasis on brutality. Much of it is implied rather than shown directly, including repeated visual references to the murder of an unarmed child and the marching off to execution of women and children for a crowd's amusement. But the results/evidence of the violence are shown in detail: There's lots of spilled blood, and wounds are shown. Romans brutalize Christians, including burning them to death -- burned bodies are shown, and victims screams in agony. Rebels also stab Romans. Other than the violence, iffy content is virtually nonexistent; a scene takes place in a brothel, but nothing graphic is shown, and while characters do drink wine, it's never to excess. Messages include persistence, perseverance, and fidelity to your beliefs.
