  • Exodus is a biblical epic that comes at you at maximum velocity but stays stirringly, inspiringly human. show more

  • It’s not a question of believing it, exactly. Director Ridley Scott has simply made us want to be there, to wish we really were there, and to accept his illusion as the most ready answer to that desire. show more

  • Swarms of flies, oozing pustules, alligator attacks and gaggles of frogs are vividly rendered in three dimensions in Exodus: Gods and Kings. And yet this biblical epic is still bland, overly long and otherwise forgettable. show more

    As usual, Hollywood puts forward religious event that it has absolutely no belief in. Atheists will enjoy this blah unfinished mixed bag more than believers of a divine entity. For a better story, and definitely more interesting actors - please see the Ten Commandments, with Charlton Heston and Yul Brenner as the leads.

    I will keep this as simple as possible. If you are just turned off by anything that has to do with God then obviously this movie probably will irritate you. I personally enjoyed the movie and would recommend it to anyone. You just have to remember everyone has their own views and we should all roll with an open mind.
