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

Goofs

Women in this time (and often since) are property of first, the Father/surviving eldest brother, then husband. Women are often seen without escort by a man or a female of his family. Dilah would have been labeled and punished for going with Samson to the beach and labeled in an unflattering manner for life for touching & kissing him. Artistic license is stretched a bit.

Sorry I went to see this movie. Wished I'd believed the reviews. Only 3 people in the entire theater.
