  • Joe Leydon

    Blessed with abundant production values and a minimum of campy excess, One Night With the King is a surprisingly satisfying attempt to revive the Old Hollywood tradition of lavishly appointed Biblical epics aimed at mainstream auds.

  • Maitland McDonagh

    Produced by the son of Trinity Broadcasting Network founder Paul Crouch, this historical epic offers a solid two hours of spectacle and intrigue drawn from The Book of Esther by way of Tommy Tenney and Mark Andrew Olsen's novel "Hadassah."

  • Scott Foundas

    Those viewers who found anti-Semitism lurking under every stone in The Passion of the Christ may rejoice in this celebration of Jewish heroism; all others should rest assured that falling asleep in the cinema is not a mortal sin.

  • Sam Adams

    There's not much joy in One Night With the King, a lavish but listless retelling of the biblical story of Esther.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Kirk Honeycutt

    Fails to find the genuine drama in its story of love and intrigue.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Marjorie Baumgarten

    The performances are all solid, although the screenplay frequently bogs down with the complexity of palace intrigues and plots that could have been rendered more consumer-friendly.

    This preposterous adaptation of the Book of Esther is recommended viewing only for those impressed that it comes endorsed by the American Bible Society.

  • V.A. Musetto

    The cinematography and sets look great, but the script is a bummer. It's overlong, overwrought and overblown.
