Rotten: The film is stuffed with anonymous, identically bearded faces, and it drowns in them.

Rotten: Richard Gere in a diaper? C'mon...
- David N. Butterworth, rec.arts.movies.reviews, Thursday, June 24, 2010
This film had its moments. David killing Goliath was fun to watch, Absalom getting caught in the tree was a nice chase scene, and David seeing Bathsheba for the first time was moving (yes there is nudity, but it is tasteful). There were half dozen, or so, other scenes that were interesting to watch as stand alone moments. That being said, the film as a whole was disappointing. The plot was hurried and difficult to follow, the dialogue was mediocre, and there was insufficient character development.

ofcourse from the fact that Richard Gere is my favorite actor. His performance in this movie was magnificent
