Storyline

David, now an old man, is still king of Israel. Among his sons, the ambitious Adonijah and the clever Solomon. The two young men are fierce rivals, since both are prospective heirs to the throne and only one can be successful. During a hunting expedition, Adonijah challenges his younger brother Solomon to a chariot race. While Solomon, though brave, still retains a modicum of caution, the daredevil Adonijah is eager to win at all costs -- and loses control of his chariot. Solomon takes the seriously injured Adonijah back to Jerusalem. On the way there they meet the attractive Abishag, who despite her youth is versed in the use of healing herbs. She actually succeeds in helping the prince. Adonijah falls in love with Abishag -- but Bathsheba arranges things so that she works for David, hoping that her youth, her beauty and her healing powers will soothe the old king's suffering. Several members of the influential priesthood and also the respected army general Joab, who served David ... Written by Anonymous

Quotes

Solomon: Nathan
Nathan: So, how's married life?
Solomon: Very pleasant. Very pleasant indeed.
Solomon: The pleasures of the body are not to be missed, Nathan.
Nathan: I have chosen to concentrate on God's love, my lord.
Solomon: Do you really think he meant you to deny yourself, Nathan? He made us this way did he not? Why would he not want us to taste the fruit?
Nathan: God put many things on earth we're not to taste, my lord. If it were not so, we would not have a free will... and he... would not be God... but simply the creator of blind animals.

I couldn't get into it.
12 November 2018 | by cinephile-27690See all my reviews

My English teacher in 10th grade knew how much I love movies and at the time I watched VHS tapes. She gave me 2 that her husband wanted to throw away since they were not going to watch them ever again. One was Disney's George of the Jungle and the other was this, since she also knows that I am religious and love such movies.

I put the tape in(well-the first of 2) and I was intrigued by the 8 minutes of previews. I usually skip those, but this advertised the other movies in the series and a preview for the Jesus one alone.

Then the movie began, and the start of it fit, since he was making out with a woman while Song of Songs is quoted. This fit since he wrote that song(or it was written for him for one of his weddings.)

Fun Fact some people don't know, like a woman at my church yesterday: see 1 Kings 11:3 and you will read that Solomon had 700 wives, and 300 concubines.

Anyways, I liked how it was starting but I did not understand the rest.

I made it into a half hour...twice. It was just lackluster(a word I hardly use, by the way) and it was not really that great. It may be better than what I am saying, but I just didn't see it.

It's just boring. That's all I have to say.
