The entire film is not available for viewing online that I can find, though someone at youtube has uploaded the video in parts with an alternate musical background instead of the original sound. The first 10 minutes of the real thing can be seen below (via Yahoo! video)[gone as of 2/17/2010]. trailer:
This is the Sermon on the Mount scene: [gone as of 2/17/2010]
The New York Times review is not positive. Variety likes it. TCM has an overview. Bible Films Blog has mixed feelings:
Thankfully it is possible to peer through the rubble of the finished film to glimpse what it might have been. In fact, in places the film really soars.
FilmFanatic calls it a "“respectful” historical drama" and says it is
best when humanizing iconic biblical events, such as the justly praised Sermon on the Mount sequence, and their intimate recreation of the Last Supper; less interesting are the massive battle scenes, which perhaps are expected fare in an epic drama but distract from the very real human story being told.
