Solid, But Not Foundation Shattering

More biblical epic than Harlequin romance, 'Samson and Delilah' has a good look and feel. With the exception of two steamy scenes, it sticks to the good book with some decent interpretations added to the dialogue. Overlong at three hours, the camera shots and scene changes, nevertheless, keep it visually appealing. Some of the battle scenes are admirable indeed. Eric Thall and Elizabeth Hurley star in the leading roles, and while they're not Emmy or Oscar contenders, Thall's performance gathers more substance near the end of the story. Dennis Hopper's portrayal of General Tariq isn't a career best, but he ups the quality of the acting, and Michael Gambon gives proper stature to King Hanon. Solid, but not substantial.
