Movie Reviews

Ba'al the storm god
Paul A. Leuenberger | Sacramento, CA USA | 07/29/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I was stunned by the obvious amount of Sumerian research incorporated into the very literate script of this excellent movie. Though Ba'al's father's identity remains controversial, the movie father, El, is definitely one of the "candidates." The quality of the various actor's performance is generally quite high and, incorporating as it does, a "mystery" as to the identity of one of the main characters, the entertainment value was engrossing throughout. I tend to sell three-fourths of the movies ordered from Amazon. This one is a "keeper!""
Four stars, but I LIKE bad movies, and Sumerian codes...

"This is a dopey movie. Take the hokiest supernatural movie you've seen and combine it with the most ridiculous disaster movie you've seen, and you get a pretty good picture of what's going on with "Ba'al: The Storm God." The thing that made me enjoy the stupid thing is that the writers actually spent a little effort trying to understand Sumerian mythology. It's almost but not quite "The Da Vinci Code" with even more ancient mythology. I see now the DVD costs less than $5. That's about what it's worth. But if you're a few dollars shy of getting free shipping, you could do worse than to tack this breezy, diverting confection onto your order. Keep your expectations suitably low and the story is pretty much a hoot. And the special effects aren't too bad, either. Harkens back to the days of cheesy drive-in movies and matinee specials. It's not great cinema by any stretch, but it's pretty fun, and you might even learn a little about why some archeologists are so intrigued by Sumerian culture, which might, in some ways, have contributed to the Hebrew mythology that lies at the bedrock of much that is Western civilization."

"Pretty good little movie here with some not too bad special effects. The story
is interesting, the acting passes and the story flows without too many dull moments. But as the movies is ending...one can feel that they are running out of
money as the movie ends pretty quick..but at least has a ending and does not
pretend to be ready for a millions sequels...
Worth watching .."
