Review: Ex-missionary must rescue his sister from a ghoulish cult in ‘Apostle’

Dan Stevens plays Thomas, a hollowed-out ex-missionary infiltrating an isolated religious community run by Michael Sheen’s black-hatted, zealous prophet Malcolm, who with his right-hand enforcer Quinn (Mark Lewis Jones) is secretly holding Thomas’ sister for ransom. What Thomas’ increasingly dangerous spying uncovers is an infinitely weirder and more gruesome form of corruption, one that threatens not just his personal quest, but the cult’s true believers, including Malcolm’s compassionate daughter (Lucy Boynton), and a pair of young lovers (Kristine Froseth and Bill Milner).
