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 (Taylor James') relationship with a Philistine seductress and his final surrender - to the Philistines and to God - turns imprisonment and blindness into final victory.

Trivia

The previous production of this Scriptural account was Samson and Delilah (1996) starring Eric Thal as Samson and Elizabeth Hurley as Delilah. See more »

Goofs

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 »

Not Bad but not great
1 March 2018 | by john_s_johnsonSee all my reviews

It was pretty accurate to the biblical story. I wished for a little more character development though. They did good though with the low budget that they had.
