Apostle Reviews

October 12, 2018
Apostle gets too bound up in the island cult it's meant to be escaping.

Apostle is ultimately an absorbing, horrifying movie that's maybe not as smart as it wants to be. But it is a lot stranger, and more disturbing, than you might expect.

I'm not sure 'Apostle' quite justifies its 130-minute running time, but you have to say this about it: It's like nothing else you could include in your annual Halloween horror marathon this year.

Evans will likely disappoint many of the fans he has attracted here; while the film does build to some gory battles, it's hardly a thrill ride.

By the time Apostle arrives at its big reveal, the movie has veered off on so many tangled pathways that the ending can't resolve them all.
