Biblical "Epic"??
10 May 2006 | by BooBoo516See all my reviews

First off let me begin by saying I really love biblical epics from the US or abroad. But "The Old Testament is a dreadful movie. The movie is not what it appears to be. This film is hardly the Old Testament (one assumes in its entirety), but just a tiny segment. I could talk about the lousy cinematography, the editing, where the shots shift from day to night as each character is speaking, or the odd strained dialog and dubbing, but why bother? I'd never heard of this stinker before, and now I know why. Although it might have some biblical significance, I would have to say avoid this one at all costs. Stick to the "Ten Commandments". Trust me.
