Joshua he fought the battle, 20 April 2011
Author: froberts73 from United States

We've seen the vengeance-chase thing, the silent hero thing so many times and, with "Joshua" it's a case of here we go again, this time with lesser results.

Fred Williamson acquited himself well, but the rest of the cast could have used some bad guy acting lessons.

The music could have used less excess. At one point it sounded like somebody was just learning to play "Chopsticks."

Also unnecessary was the 'bosom' scene. We all knew she had one. Jeez! I must say they were more 'bazoom' than your everyday bosom.

The fight scene was quite something with sound effects unlike any ever heard before. It was weird. When they bonked each other it sounded like a symphony ocrchestra bass drum. By the way, every now and then it looked like they came close to connecting.

The scenery was excellent, the horses were pretty. "Joshua" did well when he fought the battle of Jericho. This Joshua had more of a struggle, minus God in his corner.
