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.

Variety (USA)


A sluggish biblical epic that might have been more bearable if it had a much higher campiness quotient.

Hollywood Reporter


Neither impressive enough to prove inspiring or campy enough to be entertaining, Samson is as underwhelming as its title character if he went bald. (Peter Sobczynski)


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.
