1.0 out of 5 stars Great Mini-Series...this version is a crime! January 14, 2007
Format:VHS Tape
The original mini-series was 6 hours long...this version is only 3 hours.

IGNORE all the nonsense about this being the un-edited, full-length, un-cut version....PURE LIES!

If you are going to cut 50% of a movie for purely economical, greedy, self-serving purposes, as the distributors of this VHS tape have done...expect a movie that makes no sense whatsoever.

Again: the distributors of this have trashed and destroyed a great mini-series for purely greedy intentions and seem to forgot that some of us remember the original.

IGNORE THIS VERSION AT ALL COSTS !!!

There is another version of this video. It is called "The Word" by USA Home Video, and it has two tapes in a pack with 188 minutes in a full length feature film (according to the box).

1.0 out of 5 stars Waste of Time August 25, 2006
Format:VHS Tape
I can't believe that my wife and I spent three hours watching this tripe. The acting is ho hum and the plot is unimaginably stupid. It doesn't hang together in the least. The rationale for people's actions are never explained and the ending is totally unbelievable. David Janssen was far too old to be the 'babe magnet' dnd seducer his character was meant to portray. Stay away from this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cut to the bone September 25, 2010
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
The Word you saw on television when it was first released is not this video. The cuts are so deep that in thier effort to make it fit in one video cassette, they even cut off the ending altogether, In the original ending, David Jansen's father (John Houston) recovers from his stroke and tells his son how the new Third Testament has changed his life and the lives of millions of others. It's the punchline of the film and they cut it off! Don't waste you money.

2.0 out of 5 stars The Word Movie VHS Tape June 24, 2014
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
The audio in part one of this series (VHS Movie) is not good sounds as if the tape is dragging so the dialouge is slurred the video is OK but the audio takes away from the over all quality of the movie

4.0 out of 5 stars Thought-provoking June 13, 2014
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
However unlikely the premise and while not a mystery this is a thought-provoking and entertaining movie.....a good way to spend a few hours.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally..!!!! March 7, 2013
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
Read the book many years ago..before I saw the movie. Confused the two and got a different ending than I expected but I searched for this miniseries for a long time and was happy to find it here.
The book was more exciting.
