With the recent release of “Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice” Ultimate Edition on home video, the recent theatrical showing of “Batman: The Killing Joke,” and the upcoming “Suicide Squad” which features Batman, it’s safe to say Batmania is in full effect.

Having recently released the faith based film “Joseph and Mary,” Cinedigm is set to release another low-budget faith based drama titled “Peter The Redemption.” The film (which stars John Rhys-Davies and Stephen Baldwin) revolves around the Apostle Peter who has been imprisoned by the Roman Emperor Nero, a servant/follower of Christ (Susanna) and a Roman guard named Martinian.
If you are a fan of biblical movies, you pretty much know what to expect here as this tale is filled with typically strong themes such as morality, bravery, faith, redemption (obviously), and sacrifice. Personally, this genre of film is not my cup of tea, but I will admit that the presence of John Rhys-Davies definitely classes the movie up. Stephen Baldwin, on the other hand, is a very strange choice as Nero and his performance is often wooden, weird and creepy.
Presentation: Widescreen. Audio Track: Dolby Digital 5.1.
Extras: A Dove Channel free trial.
