Best Bible movie ever!, 5 September 2006
Author: Jeff Day from United States

Acting was superb and the accuracy of the story went along well with the Bible. Best of all the story was quite interesting even the filler that the director used with artistic license. Special effects could have been better but the story made up for it. It's 3.5 hours but well worth the time to watch it. Has the true spirit of Jehovah in the movie. A very inspirational movie.
