Trivia

Actor Antony Hamilton (Samson) was seriously ill with a virus, suffering from high fever and vomiting, while shooting the closing scenes with the weak Samson pushing down the temple pillars. While everyone on set kept complimenting him on his realistic acting, he had to explain that he was in actual fact seriously unwell and genuinely weak. See more »

Silence Towards God
11 November 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Samson came after Moses and he was commanded by God to deliver his people from slavery. As I watched this film I saw when Samson was speaking to Sidka and Delilah at different times and in all those times.He never once mentioned any of God's Ten Commandments most especially God's 1st and 2nd Commandments.At Samson's wedding he was told by Sidka he was going to join the garrison and even though he refused to serve them he still didn't mention God the way he should have.If I myself was Samson and in his position,I would've reflected on several things.I would have told Sidka there is only one God-The one who gave Moses The Ten Commandments,the one who parted the red sea,the one drowned over 600 of the Pharaohs chariots in the water after the Hebrews made it safely while the red sea was parted.I would have taken great joy in telling Sidka and Delilah there is only one God and he made it clear in his 1st Commandment.More so when God punished the Hebrews for worshiping a golden calf calling it a god of gold.I would have stood in front of everyone and told all of them what proof do you people need here about God.If God ever gave me the kind of strength that he gave Samson along with a sacred vow to God never to reveal it,I would have never revealed it to Delilah or anyone for that matter.Because he gave into Delilah he lost his strength as well as his eye sight and all the humility with it,until God forgave him and restored his strength.I am not surprised at this biblical film or any others,because when it comes to God's Ten Commandments they are never mentioned for what they actually stand for.
