Editorial Reviews

As a dedicated follower of Christ, Peter spreads the message of the Christians across the land, often staying only one step ahead of those determined to persecute him. As the tension between the Christians and the Romans grows, blood runs in the streets and the apostles lose St. Paul to crucifixion. On the road to Damascus Peter comes face-to-face with a stranger who shows him the only way - he must put himself on the cross in order to bring peace to Rome.

Excellent Movie, this movie taught me so much about the Apostles Peter, Paul and how they came to KNOW that Jesus Christ was son of God and the relationship Christ had with them. I cried, Omar Sharif was a perfect Peter, as his eyes express so much of the feelings that were experienced when he denied Christ (3) times and also told him he loved him (3) times. The pace of the movie is excellent, the acting superb, and most of all the historical representation (especially the Romans and the Christians),in this cinematic film captures the essence of Christ, and how those closest to him came to KNOW he was son of God and how the Holy Spirit touched those Christians after his resurecction. I would highly recommend this film!

5.0 out of 5 stars St. Peter March 20, 2007
Format:DVD
I have seen many movies about the Apostle Paul. This movie is the most accurate about Peter that I've ever seen. As my wife ans I watched it, we both said that this movie truly follows the New Testament about Peter's life. I reccomend this movie wholeheartedly. It would be a great movie for church congregations to watch together. Gary

5.0 out of 5 stars beautiful story April 15, 2007
Format:DVD
This is my favorite biblical movie! Omar Sharif was perfect with the cast. I first saw it in Italian in Rai TV and was the first to get it on DVD with Portugese subtitles. This is my second purchase as I loaned my lst one to a priest who shares it with the children of his school and I just couldn't ask for it back. One of my favorite many scenes is Paul's conversion on the road to Damascus and of course Peter crying in Jesus' arms for denying him three times. There are so many but I'll just say get it share it and enjoy!

2.0 out of 5 stars Too different from the Bible March 7, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I read the reviews. I wanted to believe the good ones and ignore the bad ones. I should have listened to Fr. Ambrose. Omar Sharif is a great actor, but too much of the movie differs from the true events in the Acts of the Apostles. A little ad-lib is acceptable, but this movie changes events, invents situations which are almost heretical, and is simply not as moving as other biblical movies, such as Jesus of Nazareth. The Bible is plenty interesting, why change it? We actually couldn't finish watching it because every few minutes my husband and I were looking at each other with a "that's not the way it happened" expression. One example is having Saint Peter see Jesus disguised as a beggar before Mary Magdalene comes to tell them of the Resurrection. Later, some of the apostles are not in the room for the Pentecost, yet they still get the gift of Holy Spirit and are able to speak and understand other languages. The Bible clearly says they were all gathered in one room. Is this being too particular? For some maybe, but for us watching the movie with our children, we didn't want to have to keep interrupting the movie to say, "That's not the way it happened."

4.0 out of 5 stars Thank God for good cinema, thank God for St. Peter November 24, 2007
Format:DVD
Folks, this is yet another jewel by Italian Radio TV (RAI), a 2005 production abouot the life of St. Peter, starring Omar Sharif.

The good thing about this movie is that it portrays the origin and growth of the primitive Church in a manner that is credible and entertaining. The miraculous, when it occurs at all, is portrayed very soberly, matter-of-factly and prosaic. You will find no "faith healing" scenes or fiery preachers screaming hell and damnation, emotional repression, and the like. No, you will find a "band of brothers" led by a fisherman who learned to love first hand in the school of the Nazarene who once was dead and now, is alive.

St. Peter is ably portrayed by Omar Sharif, which I find a surprising choice because he's a Muslim. Sharif has had to suffer a bit for his choice of movie making. According to the Wikipedia, Sharif was born Michel Demitri Chalhoub in Alexandria, Egypt to Joseph Chalhoub, a timber merchant, and Claire (Saada), an Egyptian. The British news daily The Guardian reported back in 2005 "that a message on a web forum used in the past by al-Qaida had a link to a site carrying the threat. 'Omar Sharif has stated that he has embraced the crusader idolatry,' it said. 'He is a crusader who is offending Islam and Muslims and receiving applause from the Italian people. I give you this advice, brothers, you must kill him.' Other messages posted to the site had protested at the appeal. The Guardian's article also highlighted Sharif's current "unbeliever" credentials.

Nevertheless, art is art and Sharif is an artist. His portrayal of St. Peter was of one of a strong, yet meek man.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Movie... May 29, 2007
Format:DVD
Up there with "Jesus of Nazareth" but beginning with the death of Jesus.

Much better than "Acts of the Apostles" which is word for word of Acts with Mr. James Brolin Streisand.

Much of it is not in the bible but what you've heard about the history of the early Church.

5.0 out of 5 stars St Peter February 8, 2008
Format:DVD
This is an outstanding movie that kept me glued to the screen through all three hours. Omar Sharif and the other apostles put forth a moving and realistic performance. And the guy who played Jesus was awesome. Plot is artistically woven and this will have you in tears and there are unexpected twists and turns. I now know why Omar Sharif converted back to Christianity while filming this.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good movie with reservations.
Omar Sharif did a great job with his role but much of the dialogue was stilted by the other actors. A lot of artistic license in this story but still a good job.
