4.0 out of 5 stars Quite absorbing and inspiring 18 Nov 2012
The casting is overall well done and it is exciting and gripping throughout-not a dull moment
Eric Thal plays a strong and passionate Samson who will be driven to destruction through lust and the drive for revenge. Elizabeth Hurley plays a deliciously scheming and cynical Delilah, Turkish actress Jale Arikan is probably the best actor in this as the fiery Hebrew girl who truly loves Samson. and the magnificent Diana Rigg skilfully plays Samson's mother Mara.

The dialogue is intelligent and perceptive. The main problem is that the place where this was filmed was Morocco and this is clearly the Sahara and bears little resemblance to the Holy Land. why was it not filmed in Israel?
Nonetheless the the narrative was close to the Biblical account, and the filling in done creatively.
I enjoyed this movie until the end , and found it quite absorbing and inspiring.

1.0 out of 5 stars Samson And Delilah 18 July 2007
I have to agree with the previous reviewer, this is worth no stars but 5 turkeys and is quite an insult to the 1949 version of Samson And Delilah
starring Victor Mature and Hedy Lemarr which has yet to be release on DVD?

If anyone has bought this nonsense then you have wasted your money, lucky for me a mate wasted his cash on this and has now sold this on e-bay for next to nothing.

Poor acting and generally Poor with no quality save your money and wait for the 1949 version to come out, you won't be disappointed unless you have trouble sleeping as this will put you to sleep, trust me as after 20 minutes i could not tell you what was happening.

If you like boring films then this one is for you.

This has been given 1 star under duress.

1.0 out of 5 stars A golden turkey of biblical proportions 5 Dec 2006
If it's comedy you're after, this is the film for you; if it's quality drama and an incisive interpretation of a great Biblical legend, forget it. Scarcely can such a stella cast have been assembled producing such awful acting and under the appalling mis-direction of no less than Peter Bogdanovich, one of the trendiest most celebrated directors of the 60s and 70s. This review is being written just before Christmas and this little movie will undoubtedly go down in film history as one of the biggest turkeys ever made. It's hilarious!

Watch the polystyrene fly as Samson destroys the temple; amaze yourself at how respected veterans Michael Gambon and Dianna Rigg can make the wooden scenery look life-life; wonder at what sort of fee must have been on offer for Denis Hopper to have put his name to this; and just stand back in open-mouthed shock as you watch Elizabeth Hurley put in an acting performance that should have attracted Biblical thunderbolts. This is the sort of film that should attract themed parties where people dress up as the characters, put on the DVD, ham-along to the ridiculous script and roll around on the carpet having the funniest night of their lives.

I thorougly recommend it to turkey enthusiasts everywhere and it deserves one of the biggest and richest stuffings all served on a silver platter with plenty of ham trimmings. Unbelievable!
