Samson movie

Samson is based on the powerful, biblical epic of a champion chosen by God to deliver Israel. His supernatural strength and impulsive decisions quickly pit him against the oppressive Philistine empire. After being betrayed by a wicked prince and a beautiful temptress, Samson is captured and blinded by his enemies. Samson calls upon his God once more for supernatural strength and turns imprisonment and blindness into final victory. – from film’s website

Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to see a screening of the whole movie yet, but I was given the opportunity to watch a montage of various scenes from the movie, ahead of its release.

From the scenes I watched, it appeared well done cinematically which is often a knock against Christian films. It would have been nice to see how scenes transitioned into one another to see if they worked well. Despite the story of Samson including a lot of fighting and killing, from the scenes I saw, it was fairly clean. In one of the scenes see a severed head with a little blood on it but never see the part of the head where it was severed. There are other scenes where you know killing is going on but you don’t see much of the blood or gore of it. With how Samson is portrayed, you can easily see how he let Delilah trick him. I would have liked to see how they ended the movie because of how it ends in the actual story or if they changed it. Overall from what I saw, it is fairly accurate to the biblical story, although like usual they added things that weren’t in the original, and would be okay as a family movie as long as you’re aware that there is a lot of fighting and killing.
