Visually stunning with lots of liberties taken in the retelling of this famous bible tale. However the essence of the story is intact. Some may find certain scenes offensive in that they can be quite brutal while others may find the sex scene between Samson and Delilah distasteful. ( NO it did not border on porn in any way) I on the other hand applaud them for trying to make this as accurate as possible how else would you be able to see just what a temptress Delilah really was!
I did however have problem with the casting of Dennis Hopper as the fictional Philistine General Tariq, I reckon they spent too much time developing his fictional character as a result and this indeed was not one of his better performances. Diana Rigg was exceptional as Mara while Eric Thal did a very convincing portrayal of Samson. Liz Hurley is as usual visually stunning on film.
