Cinematography is not enough here. For me, it was a dissapointment. Granted, the film makers never promised that it would be 100% Biblical in every detail. Nevertheless, I expected far more than I received. It reminded me of one of those "based-on-a-true-story" things. That's about the best I can say for it.
I bought this as soon as it was available and eagerly waited for its delivery. I started watching it almost as soon as it arrived. After one episode, I was shocked. After two, I put the whole thing away. It might have been done beautifully, but it's not Biblical.
