Storyline

Saint Peter, a reluctant but passionate leader, from the crucifixion of Jesus to his own. The film's first half dramatizes the New Testament's "Acts": early fear, the renewal of Pentecost, Saul's conversion, the decision to baptize pagans, and the Apostles' dispersal. In the second half, an aged Peter goes to Rome to join Paul, arriving on the day of Paul's arrest. Paul's death brings a crisis to Rome's Christians and to Peter; lessons from Jesus's teachings guide his decision to stay. Events within the fictive household of Persius, a Roman aristocrat, capture the upheaval that Christian teachings bring to the Eternal City. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

If you expect a faithful telling of Peter from Acts, look elsewhere
9 December 2007 | by tjbrown527See all my reviews

I gave this 1 star...and the real Apostle Peter would have no doubt given it none. It was rarely faithful to the Book of Acts in any specifics, more than not going of on wild tangents.

My wife rented this from netflix. The description said it was made for Italian TV, but I didn't do the math...this would appear to be a Roman Catholic based film. Portraying Peter as the "rock" that the Church was built on, mechanical repetition of the Lord's Prayer, the constant recital of the Sermon on the Mount and not the Gospel (which is what was done in Acts).

The lip syncing bothered me as did some of the acting and editing, but the content is what really bothers me. As has been mentioned before, this really went wacko when they got to Rome.

If this were a BIBLICALLY ACCURATE movie, I could easily sit for three hours, but this was a waste of time.

If you want an accurate portrayal of the Apostles, get the Acts series from "The Visual Bible".

This was basically a ride through fantasyland.
