An interesting and innovative retelling of the Biblical story of Samson. I would have rated this higher, but I am not a fan of the "If I knew then what I know now" style of flashback storytelling. It doesn't let you live in the moment and really experience a story. Also, I don't really feel like I got to know Samson as a person. I heard about his life, and his battles, and his women, but not enough about who he was or what he felt. I just wish there had been more substance. But it was definitely entertaining. :)
