Trivia

The book of Esther (on which this film is based) is one of two books in the Bible that does not mention God. The closest it comes is when Mordecai says to Esther, "We will pray for you." The other book is Song of Songs. See more »

Goofs

The part of Hegai, the Royal Eunuch is played by Tommy 'Tiny' Lister, who has a deep, resonant, basso-profundo voice. Hegai says the same sword that cut his eye in battle took his "manhood." A man castrated as an adult is technically a 'eunuch' and could have such a deep voice. However, eunuchs were more often castrated on purpose before puberty resulting in a higher pitch. See more »

Quotes

Father of Esther: [first lines - narration] From whence comes the purpose of a person's life? Coming by chance? A casting of the lot? Or does a call of destiny beckon to each of us? Many have wondered about my little Hadassah, and why a simple Jewish orphan was chosen to stand against the annihilation of her people. And yet the mystery of the girl most know as Esther, begins not where one might think, but 500 years earlier, with a single act of disobedience.

should have been better
9 November 2006 | by See all my reviews

The sad thing about this movie is that the cast is SO great that you expect to have a great movie. But the plot is sketchy and disjointed, as are the transitions between scenes. The biggest problem as I see it is that with such a LARGE cast it does not really become clear until the movie is half over who is who. Jonothan Rhys-Davies is awesome as always, and there was not nearly enough Peter O'Toole for this fan. John Noble did a great job, and James Callis was terrific, wicked and relentless. Despite this, the movie had plot weaknesses, was confusing, pacing was too slow at times, the language was often flowery, and Luke Goss as Xerxes was just awful, his king dithering and weak. See it on cable, not really worth the money of a ticket. What a pity.
