1.0 out of 5 stars Truely terrible 10 Nov 2010
Format:DVD
This film was awful. The Americanisation of the story with the makeup, hairdo's, characterisations and bitchiness do not convey the beauty of what the story should have been. The story that was protrayed was also not entirely accurate. For example, Boaz came over as a letch rather than someone with deep repect for Ruth. I was very disappointed with this film.

1.0 out of 5 stars The book of Ruth 23 Oct 2010
By Blix
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This eagerly awaited film was a dissapointment. The idea of make up is to show that a person is not wearing make up, especially to portray a time when, possibly, women did not wear make up....to make them look natural. These women were arrayed in all the modern colours of make up, in an obviously modern style. Naomi had a modern hairstyle (according to the age of the film) and her hair was obviously coloured. She reminded me of any mother in our own age who is trying to act a part unsuccessfully. Ruths mother was heavily made up in a modern style, like a model on a glossy womens magazine. The film was quite obviously a bunch of modern women trying to portray an ancient story but saying the words and doing the actions with no conviction. Like an amateur acting group. I couldn't bear to watch the rest of the film as the makeup and Naomis modern factory made head gear, for want of a better description, never took us back convincingly, to portray an ancient time. A poor women would have had an obviously hand woven head scarf, not the smooth factory made one she wore in the film. The acting was over emotional, not natural grief, and very modern American. It takes more to transport the viewer into the spirit of the real story than clothes and make up. This film did not reach the mark. A waste of money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Bible Film That is Well Written And Directed 15 Dec 2009
By Albert Disalvatore - Published on Amazon.com
It is not to often that you find a movie based on a bible character to be quality and extremely well written, for The Book of Ruth it excels on both accounts. The story of Ruth will capture your heart like never before with a superb performance by Sherry Morris. It was great to see her character interact with Boaz played by Carman and share some amazing chemistry on screen. If you are a fan of the biblically account of Ruth or if you enjoy a classic story of romance and redemption, The Book Of Ruth won't disappoint.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Version Available! 5 Feb 2010
By Gary H. Morris - Published on Amazon.com
There are several movies made around the story of Ruth in the Bible. This one is the most accurate and is well put together for the limited budget it was created from. You will thoroughly enjoy this movie!

4.0 out of 5 stars favored this one, not the other one! 29 Jan 2010
By Fredrick L. Murphy - Published on Amazon.com
The movie "Book of Ruth" is very good overall....and mostly follows the Biblical story line, though it's a B-rated type film (you know...acting is good by some, not all people involved, money is tight for the budget, etc...). We originally had added Book of Ruth to our Biblical collection, because it's close to the Biblical account and doesn't put so many inaccuracies into your head.

HOWEVER, the "Story of Ruth" film also sold is something we tried from library before deciding to buy and WOULDN'T BUY IT. Oy! It's purely made up, full of errors according to the Biblical book of Ruth. So buy this film here, NOT the other one!

HAVING SAID THIS...here's an update we came to decision on a while back:
The one exception to us recommending this film, is going to only strike a positive/helpful note with few people (we realize), but nevertheless....the problem we have with this film is that real live human beings with real life families (husbands, and/or wives, and/or children) are being intimate with other people outside of their family all for the sake of "it's just a job, it's acting." We personally don't believe that God will every approve body-close-holding and smooching, as "just a job so it's okay" when it comes to non-married people. You simply won't find that kind of behavior ever supported or condoned in the Bible. As i said, we realize this won't be a popular stance, in a Media-soaked culture, but nonetheless...it's the flat truth. So we cannot recommend you actually buy this film. There ARE films on the market, few though, that have actual actors who are husbands and wives being intimate on screen...or that have husbands and wives pictured who aren't married outside the movie but BARELELY touch in any intimate way (like FireProof, Facing the Giants, Time Changer, Flywheel, and others). We recommend you just place your own family member in the actor's spot, and see how you'd feel watching your partner or child doing the intimacy with a complete stranger (IN FRONT OF THEIR CHILDREN OR SPOUSE). Thanks for "listening." :)

2.0 out of 5 stars I really wanted to like this movie... 27 Aug 2010
By Digitlchic - Published on Amazon.com
The only way I can understand the 4-star average review this movie had at the time I received it as a gift is by believing friends and family members of the actors left the reviews.

When one of the comments said it was low production quality I thought they meant like the other bible series movies are (because in comparison to Hollywood, they are lower and more cheesy), but this was VERY low production quality (sound levels going up and down, extended musical interludes that felt like they were there because no one could come up with dialogue etc), the acting in general was amateurish and stiff, and the casting and make-up in some cases was way off (Ruth's birth mother looked like she'd had botox in her lips and had on a full face of 21 century make-up, another actress had what sounded like a New York accent).

Again, I say all this not to make you NOT see this, but rather to go in with your expectations set. I went in expecting a LOT more and so was disappointed. I will likely watch it again now knowing what to expect and will probably enjoy it more.

Several reviewers said this was the most accurate movie of the story of Ruth, I agree that's probably true, but that's not really saying much given the other options. Frankly, although I almost always prefer a movie to a book, next time I'll read Unshaken: Ruth (The Lineage of Grace Series #3) - perhaps one day someone will make THAT into a movie :)

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed 27 July 2010
By Alsand - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I really wanted to like this movie. I knew it was a lower budget productiuon and I also understand that the short book of Ruth isn't much material to make a full length movie. And to be fair, they did a good job of not straying too far from the Biblical text.

However, the acting is weak and the script worse, really bad at points. Dan Haggerty is the only one who can deliver a line and he has just a few. The characters all look like the came from Iowa, not the Middle East. Little things like all the clothes looking brand new and clean make it look more like a Sunday school play than a modern period piece.

With a little better directing and a few different actors, this could have been pretty good. Don't expect too much and you won't be too disappointed.
