Samson is a film produced by Pure Flix, and recently released on Netflix. This follows the story of Samson and introduces us to Taylor James in the lead role as Samson. What we at 812review enjoy about the recent faith based films is two things. The first is for families who are looking for a Christian movie these films are easy to watch, where these films in the past are difficult to make it through them till the end. The second is you often get treated to seeing various members in Hollywood lending a hand in these films. For this movie it was great to see Billy Zane bring some experience to the film and was fun to watch him and the cast work through the movie. If you do not know the story of Samson there are several moments in the film you may not follow. This is something that may have been due to editing, or writing, either instance it is at times difficult to understand the films direction.
