Storyline

A Hebrew with an unusual gift of strength must respond properly to the call of God on his life in order to lead his people out of enslavement. After his youthful ambition leads to a tragic marriage, his acts of revenge thrust him into direct conflict with the Philistine Army. As his brother mounts a tribal rebellion, only Samson's (Taylor James') relationship with a Philistine seductress and his final surrender - to the Philistines and to God - turns imprisonment and blindness into final victory.

Wait Until It Comes Out On Streaming
17 February 2018 | by angelocollazoSee all my reviews

The screenwriters made a valiant effort of filling in story details which the Bible does not provide. Unfortunately, the dialogue and acting were often cheesy, particularly the main villain, named Rallah. That said, I was relieved the film was neither slow-paced, nor preachy. Overall, I give the film a solid C.
