Angel Studios, is releasing a new film, HIS ONLY SON, which is a film about the Biblical story of Abraham and Isaac!
His Only Son recounts one of the most controversial moments in the Old Testament—when Abraham was commanded by God to sacrifice his son Isaac on the mountain of Moriah. While traveling to the place of the sacrifice, alongside Isaac and two servants, Abraham is flooded with vivid memories from the years he and Sarah spent longing for the son they were promised—the son he must now lay upon the altar.
The original recounting of this is found in the Bible, in Genesis Chapter 22.
I recently got a chance to review His Only Son in my home.
Many thanks to Angel Studios for providing a sample of the product for this review. Opinions are 100% my own.
At first, based on the introduction by the writer of the movie, I expected the movie cto be kind of low budget. But that was not the case. While there are not a lot of special effects or expensive looking costumes they are not necesary for the time period of this film.
I enjoyed the film and I had a few things I’m still digging into. And that is good. If a film sends you back to your Bible I count it as a good thing.
To help you understand how Abraham, Sarah, and Isaace may have felt the film does a lot of reminiscing about important moments in their lives.
- The character of Sarah has some markings on her face that made me curious. Knowing that Abraham and Sarah originally came from the land of Ur my thoughts were that they added these to show she originally came from a foreign land. That’s as far as I got.
- Abraham and his entourage encounter a group of bandits on the road. This whole scenario is not in the Bible but did add some drama. We don’t know what may have happened on the way.
- Sarah is very concerned and worried about Abraham taking Isaac with him to make a sacrifice to God. In the Bible, while Abraham knew he was to sacrifice Isaac, he did not tell anyone else. In fact, when he is heading off to make the sacrifice he tells his servants to remain put, that he AND Isaac will return to the after they make a sacrifice.
So there were a few details like this but I don’t want to give too much of the movie away. It is a BIble story. And if you have one you’ve probably already read this account but like I said there were some additions. I think these were things added to make the film more entertaining.
His Only Son is a nicely filmed movie. I found it entertaining to watch.
