Samson

Samson, 2018 film starring Jackson Rathbone, Billy Zane and Taylor James.  The biblical tale of Samson and Delilah.

The young Hebrew, Samson (James) is bestowed with supernatural powers from God.  After losing his wife to a cruel Philistine prince he goes on a rampage to protect his people and avenge the death of his wife, sacrificing everything for the love of his people and his God.  Samson’s relationship with the Philistine Delilah (Caitlin Leahy) leads to his final surrender where he turns imprisonment and blindness into final battle and victory.

This film was just ok, definatly not an epic tale like The Ten Commandments or Noah.  The story was good though you can’t really change the way this was originally written, they kept it close and the scenery, costumes and props were good.  The acting was good by some and just passing by others, maybe a big name or two would have boosted this film into higher ratings but I don’t know what their budget was.  They certainly did not make what they expected from it.  I’m not saying I didn’t like it but it could have been so much more if done right.  Not a bad watch once movie.
