Tv Season Info
In the end, The Dovekeepers has too many mixed messages but not enough of a point.
In all, the actors deliver even when the dialogue feels a bit starched and the story seems to hew a bit too faithfully to Josephus' real documentation of the Masada siege's survivor tales.
But beyond the expected cheese factor, The Dovekeepers is a missed opportunity to deliver a compelling modern interpretation of the famous mass suicide.
The Dovekeepers takes an epic true story of courage and resistance - the battle of Jewish settlers against Roman soldiers in Masada about A.D. 73 - and boils it down to a Harlequin romance.
The Dovekeepers aspires to be All That Kingdom Of Heaven Allows, but major execution problems clip the wings of this wannabe Biblical melodrama.
