    Maitland McDonagh TV Guide

    Produced by the son of Trinity Broadcasting Network founder Paul Crouch, this historical epic offers a solid two hours of spectacle and intrigue drawn from The Book of Esther by way of Tommy Tenney and Mark Andrew Olsen's novel "Hadassah." show more

    V.A. Musetto New York Post

    The cinematography and sets look great, but the script is a bummer. It's overlong, overwrought and overblown. show more

    Marjorie Baumgarten Austin Chronicle

    The performances are all solid, although the screenplay frequently bogs down with the complexity of palace intrigues and plots that could have been rendered more consumer-friendly. show more

    There's not much joy in One Night With the King, a lavish but listless retelling of the biblical story of Esther. show more

    I enjoy this love story. I also appreciate that it was kept as close too the scriptures as 'Hollywood' was capable of doing. Though it is not exact,. it is somewhat close to the real story. I just like Luke Goss.
