Word Entertainment Inc Samson and Delilah, The Bible Collection Series DVD

While the children of Israel suffer under the Philistines, an angel appears to an aging woman. "You will conceive a son," he tells her. "And he will grow stronger than a hundred men. He is the Lord's gift, chosen to begin the liberation of your people from the Philistines." That son was the biblical hero Samson.

Nicolas Roeg directs a distinguished cast including Dennis Hopper, Diana Rigg, Michael Gambon, Eric Thal and Elizabeth Hurley in a gripping story of faith and deception. Samson terrorizes his peoples' oppressors until Delilah, a treacherous Philistine beauty, enthralls him. She cuts off his hair, the secret to his strength. His enemies bind him, chain him and put him on show. But slowly his hair grows back. With his phenomenal strength restored, Samson is ready to exact a fearsome vengeance. Color/180 minutes. Closed captioned. Not rated (parental discretion advised).

The REAL story of Samson is a marvelous one. A story of God's power and strength. Delilah was well played because I'm sure she was that type of woman and although we know what takes place, this movie was not done with decency or respect towards God's Word. There was a huge story line that isn't even apart of the real story. And oh my God, this really should be rated R. Beware of the sex scenes! I regret spending money on this.

This is not a Christian film, it should be rated R. I couldn't believe the sexual contents in it. I bought the Bible collection but threw away Samson & Deliah. I think this should be pulled off the shelf.

Cast is great, movie is not. Characters are added all over the place that are not mentioned in the Bible. Critical elements are not even mentioned. This takes many liberties with the story of Samson and Delilah. Not recommended for a younger audience as there are some explicit scenes of Samson and his relations. It would have moved a lot faster had it stuck to the real Biblical story of Samson.

A long depiction with a lot of detail that is not from the Bible. Be careful of some explicit sexual content that might not be too pleasing in Christian circles, especially if it is to be viewed by a young audience.
