"My Name is Paul" DVD Review

*Disclosure:  The following was sent to me in exchange for my honest review.  I was not compensated in any way.
 
About My Name is Paul:
There are two sides to every story.
Paul blinded by hate and intent on destruction is determined to find and kill Peter, the enemy of his Leader. However, a terrible accident and a miraculous discovery take him off course and on a road of self-discovery where he learns to live and love the Way.

 
My Review:
My Name is Paul is such a powerful movie!  It's amazing to see how God takes someone with such hatred in his heart, and makes not only a Christian, but a leader of 'The Way'!  It's kinda like a futuristic story story of the Apostle Paul , which I think is neat!  So much has changed over the last couple thousand years, and will continue to change, but the message remains the same.  We have a loving Father in Heaven who shows us grace, forgives us, no matter what our sins are.  If God can forgive Paul, and use him to do great things, then He will forgive anyone who comes to Him.  Awesome! :-)
 
Due to intensity of the movie, and the violence, I would not recommend that young children watch this.  For those of us who have a hard time watching violent movies, I will say that they barely show anything.  Most of what happens, the viewer just assumes happened.  There is also humor mixed in, as some characters/scenes are mostly there just to be funny and lighten the mood of the movie.
 
Buy It!:
My Name is Paul releases April 8th and can currently be pre-ordered on amazon.com for $6.96!!  The movie's running time is 80 minutes and has the Dove “Family-Approved” Seal for ages 12+.

It seems like the people most vehement against God ending up having such remarkable testimonies when they do believe. I love that, it gives me hope. :)

This does sound like a powerful movie.
