The best to be said for this chromo ... is that it drives one more spike into the coffin of these synthetic biblical films.

Collins further undermines this travesty of the Bible, a late entry from director Raoul Walsh, by playing Esther without a shred of conviction.

Mar 5, 2014 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…

One of the best Biblical films, moving and trenchant.
