Critic Reviews for Jeremiah

All Critics (1)

The film takes some acceptable liberties with the text, though it goes off the rails a bit when Jeremiah suggests that sacrificing lambs is a moral crime, tantamount to "shedding innocent blood."

Audience Reviews for Jeremiah

½

Okay as far as it goes, but it feels as though there should be a part two. It stops with the fall of Jerusalem and the destruction of the temple. It was nice to see Brandauer in his unfortunately small role as Nebuchadnezzar, and Oliver Reed as the king's go-to man for bad advice. I guess Dempsey has enough gravitas to pull off the title role, but only barely. Suffers a bit from poor editing
