2.0 out of 5 stars Poor sound quality. July 8, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The biblical accounts are not represented with a great deal of accuracy.
Much creative license is used in the portrayals.
But the biggest drawback is poor sound quality.

1.0 out of 5 stars Was this for REAL?!? December 5, 2010
By A Customer
Format:DVD
I had been hearing lots (and I mean, LOTS) of negative things about this movie, which, strangely, piqued my curiosity in it all the more (albeit in a disgusting way. Disgusted curiosity, in other words). I finally got to see it sometime ago - for free, thank heavens - and wow, it was even worse than I thought. It surpassed my low expectations. I would've thought it was a spoof or something, but from what I've heard, the film makers of this movie were *serious* in the making of this.
Wow, were they for real?

I'd never imagined a film as... as WACKO as this one could possibly exist on the face of the earth. For one thing, they got a lot of the Bible facts wrong, such as Jacob travelling w/ his sons to Egypt to rescue Simeon, and the baker (the guy in the prison who was executed) as Asenath's FATHER (erm, the Word clearly states that her father was the high priest of On, dearie, NOT the baker!).
Additionally, as Alfred D Byrd's review so eloquently stated, the characters and story were just WEIRD. The way they acted, the way the plot was executed - it was just weirdness to the max. Eh, a lot of examples of the craziness that was this movie was already mentioned, so let me see if I can add a few more... oh! Before the brothers sell Joseph into slavery, they get into this huge fight (the whole lot vs Joseph and Reuben) with the most abnormal-looking movements. Goodness, I don't even know how to mentally "choreograph" it...

And the costuming was so weird. The nemes headdresses actually reminded me of elephant ears. Real Egyptian nemeses were not that... elephant-like.

The only nice thing about this movie is the scene in which Joseph and Asenath get together, and Joseph says something really beautiful and poetic (gasp!

1.0 out of 5 stars Bible Time Classics August 17, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is horrible!!!!!! I can not believe that other people gave this a good rating. I wish I have never bought this product. In the past, I have bought a number of classical bible movies, and they were GREAT!! But this, I can't even return this hunk of junk! Do not under any circumstance buy this collection. To tell you the truth, it doesn't deserve any stars at all. The films is all blurry, the back ground music is warped. The plot of the stories are truly B-rated. From now, I will be alot more cautious when purchasing my bible collection movies.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not true to scripture December 30, 2008
Format:DVD
First, if you want a DVD about Joseph, buy the DVD "Jacob and Joseph." It is well-worth it. Don't waste your money on this DVD.

This DVD "Joseph and his Brethren" is not faithful to scripture. The worst example is that it portrays Joseph as an angry, rebellious young man, not the upright, industrious man in scripture.

There are other instances which run even more in direct contradiction to scripture. I bought this DVD several months ago, and watched it only once. I forget exactly what these were, but if you watch the video, and you know Genesis, you will see the contradictions. I don't plan to watch this again, so I will not bother to find what the problems were exactly. But take my word for it, you will be disappointed if you buy this.

4.0 out of 5 stars Accurate Biblical Account July 10, 2008
Format:VHS Tape
The acting is mediocre given today's standards but still engaging. I sat with the Bible in my hands as I watched the movie and found the film depicted an impressively accurate account of the story of Joseph from Genesis.

1.0 out of 5 stars One star for the DVD presentation, not the movie March 26, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I won't bother to discuss the merits or lack thereof of the movie Joseph and His Brethren here except to say I don't think it is nearly as bad as some of the other reviewers do. The VCI DVD is another matter entirely. This was previously available from VCI in an Epics of the Old Testament box set. Supposedly it was remastered since then and released as this single disc. Totally bogus. This is the same mediocre transfer as before with a full frame image cropped on the top and bottom to approximate a 1.85 picture. The original aspect ratio is 2.35 so why even bother with the incorrect widescreen at all. Even worse is that one of the most pivotal scenes in the story, the seduction of Joseph by Potiphar's wife, has been cut out. This must have been done intentionally (it's a Christian Classic, you know) because VCI's VHS tape, which was obviously taken from the same source, had the scene intact. The best thing about Joseph and His Brethren is Belinda Lee and now her best scene has been cut.
