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.

Almost so bad it's good, but not quite.

'SAMSON': One Star (Out of Five)

A biblical drama retelling the classic story of Samson (played by Taylor James). Samson was a super strong Hebrew, who was called on by God to lead his people out of slavery. The film costars Jackson Rathbone, Billy Zane, Caitlin Leahy, Lindsay Wagner and Rutger Hauer. It was directed by Bruce Macdonald (who also helmed 2015's 'THE PERFECT WAVE'), and it was written by Jason Baumgardner, Zach Smith, Timothy Ratajczak and Galen Gilbert. The movie has received mostly negative reviews from critics, and it's also a disappointment at the Box Office as well. I found it to be painfully bad to watch, most of the time, but it's also mildly amusing in a few brief moments.

Samson (James) was a rebellious young man who was gifted with enormous strength. He knew he was meant for something, but wasn't sure of what, until his bride was murdered by the Philistine Army. Samson then decided to wage war against the evil empire. God continued to give him the super strength he needed, to accomplish this powerful rebellion.

The film is almost so bad it's good, but not quite. It's so cheesy and melodramatic, but it does have some entertaining B-movie action scenes in it (that are reminiscent of a bad Conan flick). It's weird to me that a Christian movie company would even put this film out though, it's so trashy and laughably bad. If that's what you're looking for, you'll probably enjoy it, but I can hardly even believe this movie was released in theaters!
