Young David, a.k.a. Shepherd Boy, has more faith in God than anyone else among his people. If no one in Saul's army will take on Goliath - the champion man-slayer among Leader Jaggar's Philistines - he will. David's soldier brothers, Eliab and Abinadab, have no encouragement for their underage sibling's foolhardy venture and do all they can to crush it; but, with no one else showing a gram of moxie to stand against the taunting giant, Saul finally permits the confrontation and prepares for the young lad's certain death - a determined boy who stubbornly approaches the giant without sword, spear or protective leather vest.Written by
Fourteen or so character names appear in the cast list that never come up in the movie; however, one soldier is called Jabeth by name - a speaking role that does not appear in the credits by that name. See more »

"YOU May Come Against Me With Sword and Spear...."
A pin just dropped. It seems that the critics are silent so I thought I'd throw in my two cents to even things up a bit. First, if you assume every movie is made simply to uppercut some sort of ideology into the audience's chest, then yes, it does seem very religious - so what? 80% of the world is religious! You watch sports! Guess what - you're religious! Every scene is beautifully crafted. I found the slowdown to be stylistic and much of the dialogue, which is apparently cheesy and fascist to the rest of the world, to be at least somewhat inspiring, and certainly engaging. Don't get caught up in all the anti hype. Enjoy it for what it is which is a good tale of a Bible story, great action scenes, (if not a little over done), great faith-based film acting and above all, a moral tale for today's age. 7/10
