Reviews:  Following the Biblical tale, KING DAVID chronicles the real-life story of David, a lowly shepherd boy whose shrewdness and bravery helped him ascend to the throne of ancient Israel. From his defeat of Goliath to his jealousy-fueled relationship with Saul, to his self-destructive yearning for Bathsheba, the story of David is an action-packed saga of religion and politics based partly on history and partly on legend and full of ethical lessons imparted by a wise God. Bruce Beresford, the director -- and a wonderful one, too -- did an excellent job.

The PG rating isn't quite right tho. The violence and the female nudity (you get to see full-frontal on Bathsheba -- quite like it was in the Scriptures) make this, oh a full R rating.
