Orson Welles looks slow and lumbering in this slow and lumbering adaptation of the Bibical story.
For about 80% of the film, there's nothing but a succession of static (though beautifully crafted) sets and lots of talk, talk, talk. Hey guys - remember these are meant to be MOTION pictures!
There are some good points - Orson's acting carries depth, although he only has a relatively small role; the giant Kronos who plays Goliath is an interesting personality; and the final battle scene has some merits.
Overall, however, you have to work at this one to enjoy it.
