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
My friend, Christine, took me to a preview screening the other night and I previously saw 'Genius Club' which I loved. First off, you should not plan to see David and Goliath because it is a biblical epic, nor should you plan to skip David and Goliath precisely because it is a biblical epic. You should however, see it because it is an amazing film and gives proper respect to the word of God and, using the basic story of David to deliver a first-rate epic adventure and a psychological horror story. I say 'psychological' only because of what David must have went through amidst his brothers and soldiers mocking him. The visuals are out of this world, particularly one scene depicting David praying on a rock with the clouds going by (Yes, you read that right.) Special mention must be made to that lead actor who plays David (where have I seen this guy before), who delivers the complicated picture of a man that both saves the world but is also supposed to die, and all of the weight one must feel about it. I can't praise this movie enough, it's basically perfect, if you are even the least bit curious about going, do so! You won't regret it.
