Though the overall problems may not be of his making, Richard Gere is of little help in the title role. Granted, he could have been truly awful (which he isn't), but he doesn't seem comfortable, either.

It seems a fundamental error to approach such a gory fantasia as though it were sober, four-square history.

Little more than a timeline doodle instead of a deep and meaningful portrait.

The film is stuffed with anonymous, identically bearded faces, and it drowns in them.

Directed by Bruce Beresford in the worried manner of someone who feels it a triumph just to have gotten all the kings, prophets, soldiers, frond-waving townspeople, horses and donkeys on and off the screen on time.

Why on earth Gere decided to slip into his loincloth and do the samba across the screen is anyone's guess, but it's part of the enduring mystery that is King David.
