Good, heartwarming Christmas story that both the religious and non-religious can enjpy, even if the NYC accents of the leads are a little distracting in the first century Middle East setting. Still, you can't go wrong with Martin Sheen or Alan Arkin.

Super bible story that is more plausible than modern supernatural films. The final four minutes was most satisfying, see quotes. Warning, the DVD quality was marginal, appeared to be ripped directly from VCR to DVD. You maay have to watch it with regular 4:3 display ratio as I did ... released nearly 30 years ago when Sheen and Arkin were youthful.

This Christmas-related movie is a very good adventure even though it is old.

Spoiler Alert !!

Magi: Ah, Master, I have longed sought you. Forgive me. Once I had precious gifts to give. Now I have nothing.
Voice: Artaban, you've already given your gifts to me

Magi: I don't understand, my God.
Voice: When I was hungry you gave me to eat, when I was thirsty you gave me to drink. When I was naked you clothed me. When I was homeless, you took me in.

Magi: O, not so my Savior, I never saw you hungry, no thirsty, I never clothed you. I never brought you into my home. I've never seen you until now.
Voice: When ever you did these things for the least of my brothers -- you did them for me.

Magi: Orontes! Did you hear -- Jesus say? We have found the King. We found him, Orontes, and he has accepted all my gifts.
