“Should this be true, I assume that they will probably use digital effects to make The Rock even bigger (some manuscripts have the giant standing at almost 10 feet tall), but I think that [Taylor] Lautner isn’t right for this part. While he’s only 5’10”, which puts him in the average category with American men, the big problem is that his six pack abs are his most famous feature. The whole point of the David and Goliath story is to pit the weak against the strong, and they pick a young actor who spends 90% of his time shirtless on screen? I understand it’s a ploy to draw in the Twilight crowd, but they should at least be trying to respect the story a little.” ~CinemaBlend
|Osmar Schindler (1869-1927): David und Goliath, 1888|
The story is set in motion when the fierce warrior Goliath is sent to track down a foretold king of the Israelites. A young shepherd David is thrust into an epic chase and adventure fighting for his own life, the lives of his loved ones and eventually the lives of his people. The story climaxes in a battle of literal Biblical proportions between the young man and the giant sent to destroy him.Well, that's definitely a twist I've not heard before. But, I must admit, I still find it more interesting than some of the Sunday School versions I've been exposed to, heh.
