When Esther is running to see the king to plead for the Jews the scene switches back and forth between Xerxes, indoors, and Esther, outdoors. Esther is running through pouring rain yet when Xerxes is shown sunlight can be seen shinning through the windows onto the floor and across the faces of those in the room. See more »

Great story ruined by poor screenplay and some bad casting choices
The story of Esther has great potential, but this film limps along with mediocre acting (especially from Luke Goss as Xerxes) and a sub-par screenplay. Most actors employ bad British dialects. The dialogue can't decide if it's from the King James Bible (using the word "thou") or modern America (using the word "okay.") I know the story well, and I was often confused by pointless scenes about a Greek battle subplot. I know the Greek war is historical, but it isn't in Scripture and it doesn't serve the story. I didn't buy the love story.
On a positive note, John Rhys-Davies, Omar Sharif, and Peter O'Toole (on screen for about five seconds) are very good. Lovely Tiffany Dupont displays charm and fun as Esther, although the performance is uneven.
I'm a Christian, and I'm disappointed in most films that deal with faith. Let's hope "The Nativity" is better.
