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 relationship with a Philistine seductress and his final surrender - both to the Philistines and to God - turns imprisonment and blindness into final victory.

Did You Know?


The previous production of this Scriptural account was Turner Network Television's 1996 film starring Eric Thal as Samson and Elizabeth Hurley as Delilah. See more »


This movie shows modern "ears" of what North Americans call "corn" and other places call "maize". The plant "maize" comes from the Americas and thus was never available in biblical times in any place mentioned in the Holy Bible. The Holy Bible (King James Version) does use the word "corn"; but that term referred to grains such as wheat or rye or barley. So, the use of maize in an Old Testament setting is an anachronism based upon a linguistic misinterpretation. See more »

Horrible terrible no-good very bad movie
12 March 2018 | by honeychile-107-182963See all my reviews

I was hoping that the movie might actually reflect well on the well-known Bible story -- after all, the original story has plenty of drama and intriguing characters, but no. It was just awful. It was not faithful to the original story and, in fact, added so many things that the story was almost unrecognizable. The acting was terrible and characters poorly chosen. After a while I couldn't help but laugh at the horrible overacting. And the accents! Some had British accents, some American. Ugh. The very worst thing is that rather than let Delilah be the villain she was, there was an attempt to make her seem like a good girl under pressure and fear. Double ugh. Don't bother.
