As a Bible movie aficionado, I think this is the best Solomon movie there is.
In this fictional adventure story with a Biblical setting, King Solomon and the Queen of Sheba go looking for the lost gold mines of Ophir. This is a character-driven movie. It portrays the wise and intriguing character of Solomon more believably than any other movie, including more Biblically literal ones. Halle Berry does a predictably fantastic job as the Queen of Sheba. Together, the two of them are likable, clever, and smoking hot.
This is a low-budget TV movie, which means no epic battles, grand processions, or even fancy costumes. It drags a bit in spots. That said: the plot is clever, the characters are likable, and the ending is satisfying. It is thoroughly enjoyable!
Shame it's still so hard to find!
