Taylor James plays the hero chosen by God (Samson), in the biblical drama - ‘Samson’.

A Hebrew with the unusual gift of strength must respond properly to the call of God on his life to lead his people out of enslavement. Samson is a man of incredible strength who nonetheless could not escape tragedy. His supernatural strength and impulsive decisions quickly pit him against the oppressive Philistine empire.

After being betrayed by a wicked prince and a beautiful temptress, Samson is captured and blinded by his enemies. Samson calls upon his God once more for supernatural strength and turns imprisonment and blindness into final victory.

Directed by Bruce MacDonald and inspired by the story of Samson in the Book of Judges, Samson stars Taylor James as Samson, along with Jackson Rathbone, Billy Zane, Caitlin Leahy, Rutger Hauer, and Lindsay Wagner.
