Aimed squarely at Christian audiences looking for inspirational family entertainment, Samson is a preachy and plodding drama that's light on excitement, action or any real sense of spirituality.

The result is a film that tries hard but feels like a casual shrug of the shoulders.

The movie's most interesting clashes aren't between Samson and the Philistine royals, but between Pure Flix's intent to create "clean" entertainment and the obvious bloodthirstiness of the source material.
February 16, 2018
A bargain-bin biblical epic that delivers the requisite mass-murder-by-ass-jaw as a cheapjack approximation of Zack Snyder-esque pomp, but is for the most part clinically dull.

Could have used a more charismatic Samson and more beguiling Delilah

February 28, 2018
The story of the biblical strong man from the Book of Judges is drably retold without a trace of style or showmanship, making Cecil B. DeMille's 1949 Samson and Delilah (which was pretty good already) look like a masterpiece of great art by comparison.

While it cannot be faulted for its sincerity, it can be faulted for its sluggish pacing, inconsistent performances and lack of cinematic style that gives the proceedings a tacky feel throughout.

Bible-based tale has bloody beatings, eye-gougings, more.

February 15, 2018
No passion allowed in this story of seduction and betrayal. This is the sanitized version that can easily be shown in churches.

I can't really endorse paying full price for Samson, as the target audience will probably find it a little cheesy, and the camp-value audience might be better served waiting for cable.

Perhaps...I am being too hard on a pretty okay movie that will make a lot of viewers happy.

February 16, 2018
A sluggish biblical epic that might have been more bearable if it had a much higher campiness quotient.
February 15, 2018
A respectful and heartfelt portrayal of a story whose power is undimmed over the millennia.

February 15, 2018
An old school religious epic harking back to Cecil B. Demille, replete with mob scenes and breathtaking panoramas.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
