About this item

Based on the traditional Biblical Story of the prophet Elijah, "Blast and Whisper" brings to life the trials of the great chieftain whose patience and fortitude are put to the test in his struggle against a royal government fallen under the spell of pagans. Oppressed by Queen Jezebel and her bloodthirsty accomplices, Elijah refuses to descend into personal vengeance. Touched by the man's firm resolve to preserve his conscience and his code of conduct untarnished, God himself offers to carry out vengeance against the injustice perpetrated against Elijah and his tribe, in a manner to be chosen by Elijah. Explore the depths of Elijah's fascinating life in this wonderful film that will inspire and captivate all who watch.

Powerful Bible Movie for Miniscule Budget Level
7/17/2012

Customer review by Dandruff

4.0 stars by Dandruff

Blast and Whisper dares to defy the drought of bible movies that have been sustained for a number of years, with the short exception of a couple years in the wake of The Passion of the Christ. As another review points out, Elijah movies are hardly coming out every other year! In some sense, beggars can't be choosers. This particular movie had a pitifully low budget. In fact, I understand the company that made it sank just about all their funds into the making of it. For those who find its production values objectionable, I would ask are they comparing it to The Passion of the Christ, Inception, and For Greater Glory? Such films, with A-list actors, had far greater resources poured into them! Obviously they are going to outclass Blast and Whisper. But Blast and Whisper actually makes good use of the scarce resources it has. The lead actor, Mehran Haq, definitely looks the part. Libertad Green does a respectable job portraying the famous villain Jezebel, the vortex of the evils in the story. If you look at the movie's explosion that flies down from heaven, can you find another microbudget movie with better practical effects? Or the cave scene visual effects? These are seldom if ever seen in a microbudget bible movie. In addition, the movie is original in a way that applies the ancient Bible story to today's world, where God is at best only "half remembered." It's not the best movie I've ever seen in my life, not by a long shot, but if you let it unfold on its own terms, you will be rewarded. For its pitiful budget, this movie is POWERFUL. In fact, if you think of the cheapest movies released to wide distribution, Blast and Whisper in my opinion is probably the very best of the best! (Incidentally, the studio is NOT what's shown on this WalMart page, a Team? The film production was actually from Breadwin Productions. Great job, guys, with pocket change!!!)

Since 1953 first Elijah movie released
7/15/2012

Customer review by Bacroat

4.0 stars by Bacroat

This movie Blast and Whisper is the very first effort to portray the life of the prophet Elijah in film since the Sins of Jezebel movie of 1953. It is a low budget effort, and should only be compared to other low budget productions. If you are expecting major Hollywood CGI and A-list actors, then this is not the film for you. However, if your empty space on your bible movies shelves has a gaping hole where the story of Elijah should go, then this is a good DVD to get. The Bible itself begins this story with Elijah's utterance of the curse of a drought upon the entire land. Because of this starting point, then obviously the movie either had to also start with the punishment without depicting why the punishment came to be proclaimed, or else the film-maker had to make up an explanation for this first biblical curse from Elijah. In the case of Blast and Whisper, the film-maker decided to attempt to fill in the backstory before reaching the curse. If you abhor the idea that the film should try to backfill the details instead of starting right off with the curse, then again this is not the film for you. However, if you let the film tell its own story, then despite the immediate impression at the start that we are nowhere near the chapter and verse of the Bible, you will eventually be rewarded because the movie does join the flow of scripture gradually. In fact, it is a delight to see how the "unbiblical" quality of the opening seems to flow into the biblical facts and verses, so that you are left with the impression that you first thought it was an imaginary tale, very loosely based on scripture, only to discover by the time the movie finishes that you have just found yourself in the bible almost without knowing it! It's clever IMO.

Good movie but you must consider its meager budget

Customer review by ItsMrD

3.0 stars by ItsMrD

Low budget movies can only do so much with what they've got. Blast and Whisper -- not an exception. Without access to A-list actors, expensive locations, CGI, and the rest of what you'd find in the most mediocre million dollar movie, Blast and Whisper makes rather good use of what meager resources it managed to scrounge together. The unique thing about it is that dialogue is written in Shakespearean English. This provides the sense that we are not hearing today's English. Few movies have given a period piece this kind of meticulous attention, including even the multimillion dollar ones -- which this movie should NOT be compared to! I really think the scene with the Prince of Omri on the horse (eventually descending from the horse) succeeds in this Shakespearean-Biblical world. It has a majesty that comes across. Everything in the movie could be improved, everything in ANY micro budget movie could be improved, but it would definitely have ratcheted up the cost I'm guessing half a million dollars just to accomplish the kinds of improvements that all micro-budget movies could improve with. I applaud the effort and meticulous care put into this movie under micro-budget conditions. Watch it: it makes you think.
