If you ever wanted a clear picture of the Biblical book Jeremiah, this video is it. Brilliantly portrayed whilst remaining true to the script-ure. A harrowing yet powerful account of the prophet Jeremiah.

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

It's not a bad introduction to one of the OTs greatest prophets and the context of God's prophecies against Israel's blatant sin and continual un-repentance.

But missing from the film is the Christological element to Jeremiah's prophecies. God wants His people to turn from sin because He loves them; he uses Israel's unfaithfulness to pain the picture of the Saviour who will make the perfect sacrifice for them and all of mankind.

Also, Dempsey make no effort to perform his role with a Middle East accent, which pulls one a bit out of the story.

Two stars, I guess. They added quite a few superfluous things and left out quite a bit, so it was a bit annoying, but the worst thing was that they used a little girl to portray the Angel of the Lord/God! :-0 The good sides were that they got the main message about right, and some of the wording was close to the Biblical account.
