Steve Pulaski's rating of the film Samson

A shaggy third act and some clearly cash-strapped visuals aside, "Samson" is a throwback to 1970s religious epics tailored to modern audiences. Taylor James is characteristic as Samson, and Jackson Rathbone legitimately plays the villain. Going forward, Pure Flux should focus on historical stories and Bible characters as the basis for their films as opposed to a continuation of the "God's Not Dead" cinematic universe
