Lib Critics Are Disgusted With St. Paul Film, Say Its ‘Boring’ and ‘Pious’

By Corinne Weaver | March 23, 2018

Christian films risk being torn to shreds by the secular Hollywood media.
While the critics were dismayed at the surprisingly popular I Can Only Imagine last week, this week they find themselves being put to sleep by the "boring” Paul, Apostle of Christ film, released on March 23. While Christian critics are willing to give the film its chance, critics at Variety are disappointed that the film isn’t a Marvel movie.

Peter Debruge at Variety wrote, "In a world that idolizes DC and Marvel superheroes...Paul’s power is of a less spectacular sort.” The film apparently also felt like "just a notch above a community Christmas pageant,” but only because it had Jim Caviezel in it, an actor the critic recognized.

In fact, the film could have been construed as offensive, if one chooses to believe Variety, since it does not "suggest tolerance of religions other than Christianity.” Debruge seemed to also be perturbed by the fact that the film didn’t focus on the "sensationalistic” persecutions of the Christians in Nero’s time.
