I liked all the movie!
decent movie, some stuff taken from what source? I guess imagination. not scripture but all in all decent.
This has got to be the dumbest movie I have ever scene. The script and acting were completely flat, and I felt little to no chemistry with any of the actors. It was obviously low budge, which I have nothing against as long as it has something going for it, but it didn't. I would have been more entertained just reading it out of the Old Testament.
This movie is action-packed and entertaining. It was somewhat consistent with the Biblical narrative, but not entirely. I realize that in order to make a full -length film out of two small chapters in the Bible, details must be added, but what I am wondering is why some of the details that ARE present in the scripture's text were left out or changed. Samson's first wife tricked and betrayed him in the Bible and was not innocent like the movie depicted. Her father later gave her to another man..not the Philistines ruler, as the movie portrayed. In the Bible, Samson knowingly went to a Philistine prostitute for her services and left in the middle of the night, picking up the posts of the city gate and moving them to the top of a hill. He was not confronted by the Philistines at that moment (as seen in the movie) because although they had heard he was there, they had not planned to attack him until he came out the next morning. Delilah was NOT living with the Philistine rulers before she met Samson. In the Biblical narrative, they confronted her and bribed her to beguile him AFTER they found out he had fallen in love with her. She took the bribe and was relentless in her attempts to get Samson to tell her the secret of his strength. He became well aware that she was untrustworthy well before he finally gave in to her and revealed the secret of his strength. Every time (3×) he gave her a false explanation of how he could be subdued, she immediately put it to use on him and led the Philistines in to attack him. He knew she was with his enemies, but he was so addicted to her and proud, (thinking that even if he broke his vows he'd still be able to defeat whoever she sent to subdue him) that he gave her what she wanted. An opportunity was missed here to expose how the power of sexuality, misused, can seduce someone to ruin themselves willingly.. a message our culture needs to see. Can a man scoop fire into his lap and not be burned? Pro
