Vision Video St Patrick: The Irish Legend, DVD

This is the first ever feature film depicting the life of the world-famous Irish hero. Armed with only courage and conviction, Patrick's unwavering belief that good conquers evil would liberate Ireland and alter the course of history. Patrick Bergin, Malcolm McDowell, Alan Bates, and Susannah York star in this lush production filmed on location in Ireland. Patrick is born in Britain, the privileged son of nobility. At the age of 16, he is kidnapped by Irish raiders and enslaved by a cruel druid chieftain. Six years later, following many vivid dreams and visions of destiny, Patrick escapes and returns home to England and a sheltered life with his loving parents Concessa and Calpornius. Troubled by new visions of the Irish people pleading to be freed from enslavement and hardship, he returns to the turbulent country intent on liberating the nation. His mission is jeopardized by British Bishop Quentin, who believes the Irish are warlike heathens, but his unwavering courage in the face of adversity utlimately forces Ireland to abruptly turn in a direction that changed history forever. 90 minutes.

very good movie. basically close to historical truth although the Druids St. Patrick was fighting were using magic which worked well for the movie but does require a willing suspension of disbelief

This movie was awesome. There is much I did not know about St. Patrick. I've heard other ministers tell how devoted he was. But this movies shows so much more. He was truly a man that moved in the miraculous. And with the way God is moving today that is not hard to believe. My friends and family have been so blessed by this movie. It is one of the best purchases I've ever made.

My wife and I actually enjoyed this movie even though they added the snake scene. If you're looking to learn more about St. Patrick in a history context then I would would recommend more along the lines of a documentary to you. This is a movie and may not be completely accurate but it does give you a good idea of who St. Patrick was and what he did. I was encouraged by one particular character in the movie. . .it's amazing how God uses children as an example of the faith that we as adults should have.

I thought that viewing this film was a great opportunity to learn more about a historical figure who served the Lord so fervently despite his many adversities. Instead I found this inane film beset by many complete inaccuracies, such as his expelling of snakes on the island (THIS NEVER HAPPENED), while the historically accurate was presented in such a stupid, vapid way as to render it unbelievable. "Artistic license" is also repeatedly used to stuff stilted dialog and insipid acting down our throats. This movie was painful to watch and insulting to all that St. Patrick accomplished. I wish I had never purchased it.
