      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Tonally unbalanced and burdened with a distracting Shia LaBeouf performance, Padre Pio is one of Abel Ferrara's less divine works.

      Filipe Z I know the story of St. Padre Pio relatively well, and the trailer tells much more about it than the movie itself. Two stories with almost no connection. Anyone who doesn't know about the post-World War I scenario in Italy and the story of Padre Pio will finish the movie knowing the same thing. Sad. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 03/28/24 Full Review Angel G I think this movie was deeper than most people appreciate. I thought the Padre Pio performance was "period appropriate" for post WWI. His hauntings from the demonic were stunning. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/28/24 Full Review Cinema S The decision to circumnavigate its titular character makes one wonder why this movie was ever made in the first place. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/26/24 Full Review Jose I give this movie a generous 1 star. It gives little to no insight into who Padre Pio was or why he became a saint. There is a separate story being told that appears to have nothing to do with padre pio. The second story is dark, depressing and boring. If your suffering from insomnia I recommend you watch padre pio. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/31/24 Full Review Sean D It felt like 2 movies in 1. Very sloppy. Shia's performance is very good but was limited while the movie tried to balance another story. We still don't know too much about Padre Pio after seeing the film. If the movie was just about Padre Pio, it would have been much better. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 03/17/24 Full Review Cristina R Confusing. Not really much about the life and ministry of the priest.

      Tara Brady Irish Times The sins and injustices of the outside world find terrible expression in St Pio of Pietrelcina’s body and imperfect expression in Ferrara’s 22nd feature. Rated: 3/5 Jan 31, 2024 Full Review Wendy Ide Observer (UK) Any authenticity is skewered by the decision to shoot in Italian-accented English, meaning that much of the dialogue sounds as hammy as a leg of prosciutto. Rated: 2/5 Jan 28, 2024 Full Review Jonathan Romney Financial Times Padre Pio is an unholy mess. Rated: 2/5 Jan 26, 2024 Full Review Victoria Luxford City AM Confused and unsatisfying, Padre Pio had the potential to be a gripping religious biopic in the vein of Martin Scorsese’s Silence. As it is, two once-promising talents squander an interesting premise, with the audience being taken to cinematic purgatory. Rated: 1/5 Jan 29, 2024 Full Review Alexa Dalby Dog and Wolf Go and see Padre Pio if you think you’re hard enough. It’s mostly true and it’s an eye-opening watch. Rated: 3/5 Jan 25, 2024 Full Review Savina Petkova A Good Movie To Watch A character study that breaks free of its biographical chains, Padre Pio shows that Ferrara has still got it, 50 films in. Rated: 7.8/10 Oct 29, 2023 Full Review Read all reviews
