This DVD is great. Good acting, true to the text, fun, even!
This movie is the entire book of Acts word for word. It shows how Christianity was spread after Jesus returned to heaven. I liked the way the story of Saul/Paul was portrayed. Unlike others I think all the actors did a fantastic job including Peter. Also I think there were enough background actors. Awesome movie.
I never thought that seeing a movie which followed faithfully a book would make such a difference. But it does. Its a brand new experience to read the Acts in one go. Its great!
