The greatest stories of the Old Testament are brought to the screen with astounding scope and power in this international film which depicts the first 22 chapters of Genesis.

Matching the epic scale of the production are performances by George C. Scott as Abraham, Ava Gardner as Sarah, and Peter O'Toole as the haunting presence of the Angel of God. The legendary John Huston directs and delivers a commanding performance as Noah.

4 Stars- Elton P
Although I saw this movie on VHS, I still became mesmerized and in awe of the stories of GENESIS! It was my first Inspirational movie I purchased with my allowance money.It made me realize that GOD loves us UNCONDITIONAL! As a teenager,this was my first movie that really inspired me to know more about JESUS and SALVATION. If bible stories are in your genre,I hope that this movie be in your movie collection. TYJ

Decent movie and overview of Genesis. A bit slow-moving, but not disappointed to have watched it all.

3 Stars- Nancy M
This long movie does tell the story quite well. A lot of scripture used and good acting, of course, given the actors. The only problem I had was it is way to slow moving but I still think it's worth the watch once for sure. It's a very old movie but that's part of what makes it unique from today's versions.

Be aware of the all the nudity in the beginning when they film Adam and Eve. This should be rated R with the nudity.
