Reviews

Narrated by Academy Award nominee Liam Neeson and Gabriel Byrne as the voice of Patrick...

Few historical figures inspire more celebration than Ireland's St. Patrick. Many believe him to have been an Irishman who drove the snakes from Ireland, but neither is true. Patrick offers a dramatic new look at one of the best-loved and least understood icons of the world religion.

The story of the real St. Patrick is part adventure tale and part spiritual awakening, with the future saint rising from slave to liberator, learning to forgive and ultimately love his enemies, taking up a cause no one believed in, and finally lighting a fire that kept western civilization alive.

Patrick was filmed entirely on location in Ireland.

A visually stunning and artistically done docudrama of Patrick 13 Feb. 2009
By J. Moore - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Very artistically and beautifully done. There is so little primary documents on the legendary life of Patrick. This docudrama has compensated with visuals from the Emerald Island and beautifully done photography. The best DVD of Patrick that I have seen.

Nicely Done Story of our Favorite Saint! 8 July 2009
By J. Purnell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
So many stories of religious figures add Halos that make it all unbelievable to me but this telling of Patrick's story is well done, dramatic and informative. I like a good rebel story and this story of Patrick delivers. Patrick is played as an admirable hero. If you are curious about where Patrick came from, how he won the hearts, respect of Ireland or how he lived this is a fine telling of the story. Casting Liam Neeson (from Belfast) is a brilliant touch of Irish magic. Patrick

Getting to know Patrick 24 May 2009
By John J. Babbitts Jr. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This video is an excellent reource on not only getting to know St. Patrick and the details and focus of his life but also as a resource of how to reach others with the Gospel of Christ.

Well done 14 Jun. 2009
By Grace O'Malley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Portrayal of Patrick's kidnapping to Ireland, followed by his escape, and returning home only to voluntarily return to Ireland. Documentary style at times glosses over periods of his life while going into deeper detail of others. Overall, conveys the material in an understandable way and who couldn't listen to Liam Neeson for hours!

The Best Documentary on Patrick to Date 25 April 2013
By Lee Freeman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
As has been said, this DVD is most likely the best documentary on Ireland's patron Saint that has been made to date.

As has been said elsewhere, for one of the best-known saints, most people actually know very little about St. Patrick, Ireland's Patron Saint. This film should serve as a nice corrective to that. Forget the green beer and "Kiss Me, I'm Irish" buttons. This is the *real* inspiration behind St. Patrick's Day.

Thankfully the film stays away from the subsequent myths and legends that grew up around Patrick (such as his driving the snakes out of Ireland; there were no snakes in Ireland when he arrived there) and focuses upon what we actually know about Patrick from ancient British and Irish historians as well as, primarily, from the Saint's two extant writings, his *Confessio,* similar to St. Augustine's *Confessions* and written near the end of Patrick's life, and the *Letter to Coroticus,* in which Patrick excommunicates a British chieftain named Coroticus who had kidnapped and enslaved a group of new converts of Patrick's.

The documentary by award-winning director Pamela Mason Wagner, filmed entirely on location in Ireland, features an award-winning soundtrack and takes viewers through Patrick's life, from the teenage boy Patriciius' capture in his Roman Britain by Irish slavers and being sold into slavery, to his eventual escape from Ireland after receiving a vision from God, to his entrance into holy orders, to his return to Ireland as missionary-bishop (he replaced Bishop Palladius), his letter of excommunication of Coroticus, continuing on to his writing of his Confession, and eventual death.

The film features lengthy interviews and commentary with/by Patrician scholars such as Sister Maire B. de Paor (*Patrick: Pilgrim Apostle of Ireland*), Philip Freeman (*Saint Patrick of Ireland: A Biography*), and Pultizer-Prize winning Irish author Frank McCourt (*Angela's Ashes*).

The narration is done by Irish-American actor Liam Neeson (*Schindler's List*) with Gabriel Byrne (*The Usual Suspects*) as the voice of Patrick.

This is a great movie for personal viewing, or a family devotional but would also work well in a church setting if your congregation has A-V equipment to show movies.

I really can't recommend this film highly enough.
