Storyline

Recounts the story of the birth of the Jewish people and the advent of monotheism on the backdrop of the last week in history of the infamous city of Sodom, the entertainment, gambling, sex and corruption capital of biblical times. A close look reveals that the biblical reality is no different than our reality today. A jungle of wheeling and dealing where its every man for himself. The father of the nation extorts God to save Lot, his relative, the evil king of Sodom proves authority will corrupt even the one righteous man in the city, Lots Wife redefines opportunism, and even the angels assigned to do justice discover that scruples are of no consequence when the heat is on.

Just a spin off of a TV show
28 August 2010 | by (Israel) – See all my reviews

You know The Simpsons, so they made a movie. Was the movie better than the series? No way. This is the case here, but add lack of funds as a "bonus" and you receive a yawning experience. The movie cannot carry itself. It is just an expansion of a gag, usually no longer than 5 minutes. The movie was done for the summer, that is no shame, but it could have been written better. The main characters lack development, and the plot goes nowhere. But worst of all is the absolute lack of visual effects, so needed in a movie revolving around the destruction of Sodom. I say if you don't have the money to make the necessary visual effects, don't do the movie. Set it up in a place where there is no need for expensive effects. The foreign audience won't be able to watch this movie, because it is absolutely out of context for those unfamiliar with the TV series, which this movie is based on.The Israeli audience, such as myself, was allured to the theaters by the aggressive promotion and a high anticipation. Disappointment was the outcome, unfortunately.
