MEGA mega disappointment!!

5 years, 11 months ago at Mar 10 6:15
There have been epics in the 50s and 60s that have been absolutely fantastic! I was interested in seeing this one because I did see The Ten Commandments and absolutely loved it so needed to see a biblical film in the 50s or 60s that tells the stories of the Bible in the beginning. When I watched it, The Bible: In The Beginning… turned out to be out of the most disappointing films I have ever see... read more

Movie Reviews (1151-1200) (50 movies items)

" The Ups: Ambitious try at filming the first chapters of the Genesis chapter in the Bible without removing much for cinematic effect. The Ark and Babel's Tower are impressive visual images from the 1960s and especially the Biblical epic. The Downs: Preachy and with very little surprises. Snail-moving pace. There is no risk taken with the subject matter and since everything is done "by the book" one get a distanced contact with any character in the film as they are mostly introduced, narrated "

Mustanaamio7's Movie Diary - Year 2010 (649 movies items)

"17.6. 2010 It is the bible. What more can be said about the story? John Huston's movie about The Old Testament works only in the beginning, which doesn't surprise me since the full title really is "The Bible: In the Beginning...". After that the story becomes hard to follow because of stiff acting and many too preachy scenes. The movie is surprisingly exciting during the scenes where we see Noa building his arc and after that trying to survive from the great flood with his family and animals."

When I watched it, The Bible: In The Beginning… turned out to be out of the most disappointing films I have ever seen. It was very dull and after a while, the storylines were getting uninteresting and unrealistic. I mean, they were either too long or not long enough. The film lacked emotion, tension and excitement.

The acting from everyone in the cast was poor except for George C. Scott as Noah. Michael Parks and Ulla Bergryd portrayed Adam and Eve. Where I was disappointed in that storyline was that ” read more
