Excellent to expose the stupidity of biblical literalists (by Bento_de_Espinosa)
I'm giving this film a 10, not because it's an excellent movie it's a OK movie . I'm giving it a 10 for the courage of its makers to deviate from the biblical narration, although it could have been an even looser interpretation of the Exodus story, since it never happened in reality anyway.I'm amazed and amused at the same time by the many negative reviews given by angry religious people who are mad at the film makers for not sticking to the "historical facts". Are you kidding me? These people read a story that for centuries was orally passed from generation to <more>
generation, until it one day, some 2,500 years ago, i.e. many centuries after the supposed events, got written down, and they call it "historical facts"?!If this story happened the way the Bible tells it, then biblical literalists really are worshiping a sadistic tyrant, who kills innocent people and even children. Is this what they want?Please think: You have 400 years of Hebrew presence in Egypt and about 2,000,000 people 600,000 men + their families + a number of non Hebrews walking for 40 years in the desert, and despite 200 years of intense search absolutely nothing has ever been found that shows that this biblical tale really took place. Zero, nada, niente! Even many Jews don't believe in it anymore. In the 1970s archaeologists gave up searching for evidence.So, why should a film about the Exodus stick to the "facts" when this story is not based on facts?If religious people want historical facts, how about this one: according to the Jewish Encyclopedia, fact is that the Hebrews were polytheists. After the Babylonian exile around 500 BC , the prophets compelled them to stick with Yahweh Jehovah , who was just one of their many gods, but had become the main one.And if you think Moses was a man of God, then open your Bible now and read Numbers 31:13-18. That was Moses! And in Deuteronomy 13:6-10 Yahweh himself commands the Israelites to kill their own families, if they turn to other gods. If you believe in the Bible, this is the god you are following!Again, the film is not superb, but not bad either.
For a biblical epic the religion isn't presented in a positive light. In fact it is presented in a quite neutral way. And I have to say I enjoy this fact that no religious propaganda is being forced down my throat. In my opinion seeing these biblical characters as normal men and women brings them closer to feel for them, to start to sympathize with them. Which might also bring people closer to religion.The story skips the obligatory baby in the basket rescued in the river beginning and jumps right into action which might seem necessary but that is what the audience came for. Christian <more>
Bale carries the film on his shoulders from the start and he proves once again why he deserves to be called one of the best actors of this generation. He is one those actors who you believe every word that comes out of their mouth. Joel Edgerton is not very convincing in the start but when he turns into the arrogant pharaoh he becomes a lot more fun. Ben Kingsley can not be missing from a historical film like this and Sigourney Weaver is absolutely redundant. She is in the film for two scenes and says like two lines. Issac Andrews comes as the biggest surprise in the film. I just don't understand where does Hollywood keep finding these talented child actors. He plays God's messenger or is it God in person? who is depicted as malevolent, mysterious, mischievous boy, who gives answers in a very ambiguous way.From the start it seems like Ridley Scott will bring a usual standard historical fare but when The Plagues kick in you can bet you will get yours money's worth. They are visually creative, filled with ideas and immensely entertaining.From the beginning the film seems like a typical sword and sandal film but then the film turns into a biblical carnage of epic proportions that is fun, creative and a perfect film for the holidays. This the proof that Ridley Scott is still an amazing filmmaker who will hopefully keep on bringing great films.
Criminaly underrated, terrific piece told in our days mainstream movie language (by 851222)
Greetings from Lithuania.If you are looking for a word by word correct and historically accurate story of Moses, look somewhere else. If you are looking for a visually spellbinding, superbly entertaining 2 h 30 min long but not too long take on this myth with great actors and amazing production values - look nowhere else: "Exodus: Gods and Kings" is a triumph."Exodus: Gods and Kings" is a retelling of well known myth call it whatever you like for these days mainstream audience. It is written not how they probably have spoken back then, but in a way that viewer of this <more>
movie won't fall to sleep during it's running time and would be entertained rather then confused. It contains familiar faces doing their good works. Moses itself here is more like a Maximus from "Gladiator" then a biblical person. It's all here works for one purpose - to keep audience entertained and to tell them a myth in these days movie language.Overall, "Exodus: Gods and Kings" is a superb entertaining. It has amazing production values - superb set design, great costumes, make-up, great special effects they are really great here . At running time 2h 30 min. this movie never drags ! - i was engaged in a story and superbly paced storytelling from the opening scenes till the very end. Great "pop" retelling of a myth, great movie.
This is the first time I write a review since I felt like I needed to. I reads lots of BS about this movie on how all the cast is white and why the story is not as it is the old testament, and acting is week and so on... Some people out there are pathetic! Visual effects were stunning, the story was cleared of religious BS as much as possible. They transformed Moses from an imaginary personality with a stick that turns into a dragon into a real and believable character. Battle scenes were epic and setting is pretty much impressive. The famous red sea scene was so impressive that many people <more>
in the theater just uttered word like wow or holy sh..., as an atheist I really enjoyed the story,SFX and especially lack of the usual BS that you would expect to see in these sort of films.And last but not the least Christian Bale rocked, don't fall for the film parasites AKA movie critics. They have to bash a good movie to get credit and praise garbage films to show how they are different, alas they are nothing but a bunch of elitist morons!
Ridley you are great. What a Magnificent movie you have created, so much so that I will be back tomorrow to see the SPECTACLE again, but this time on VMAX. The action in the first 10 minutes, is worth the ticket alone. And the CHARIOT rides are so much fun. I always have had a yearning to experience Egypt the way it was in all of its glory, and you have certainly captured the essence as it must have been. The Temple of Karnack, still the largest ever built by man looks fabulous in 3D. The sets, locations, costumes are so VIVID, that I wish I were there now to see it for real. But to the story <more>
of Moses, it is very realistic and true to the story that I have known, but even more so. Of course you have made a literal interpretation, but the God boy called "I AM" is a refreshing idea. From my interpretation "I AM" is equivalent to "AMEN". All in all... ALL GOOD
This is a great movie and will absolutely get a few Oscar nods for Batman and the guy from Star Wars; the make-up and costumes was unbelievable. I honestly couldn't recognize Batman in this movie it was that good. It was a hybrid of Gladiator and Avatar but with better acting and some surprise twists I was blown away.Buy the popcorn, get the soda and take the girl out, this movie is the best of the Year. I haven't had this much fun since watching the Seahawks win the Super Bowl.Russell Wilson Rules! Batman is a great actor and the guy from Star Wars will win best actor and supporting <more>
Exodus shines in its magnificence. Sour reviews unfounded. (by redwingsm)
First, I would like to address the naysayers and 'hate' reviews I've seen for this movie for being historically inaccurate. I find this reason for a poor review to be, unfortunately, historically accurate. As nobody has firsthand experience from a story told over 4000+ years ago there is no possible way to actually make a movie based on the life of Moses and those around him, historically accurate. It is all based on a translation of documents books passed down through generations of re-writes and embellished stories written in a time where true knowledge was scarce and the lack <more>
of a print press meant everything was written by hand by man. The bible goads over the imperfections of man yet relies on man's interpretation vis-à-vis; The Bible to be factually accurate. The hypocrisy is self evident to anyone being truthful to themselves and others. This is why so many poor reviews have made it to the light of day because so many people out there take the story of Moses from The Bible to be a factually accurate account of his time on Earth.Anyway, I digress. Exodus: Gods and Kings has wonderful acting and direction and should be lauded for such. Any reviews lower than 5 stars are simply false and should be ignored due to this. That being said, I found this movie to be superb in many ways that off-put many Christian moviegoers. They took an old story and made it fresh and believe it or not, somewhat believable and much easier on the stomach than its original material. Without going into detail they have taken the story of Moses and made many changes that could rightfully explain some of the more outrageous claims made by The Bible. While this made many hard nose bible thumping Christians raise their arms in disgust, this Christian applauds the effort and yearns for more.Christian Bale does a fine job as Moses and really shows he still has it and will likely end up with the greats such as Jack Nicholson, Clint Eastwood and Robert De Niro who have stood the test of time and, in many instances, gotten better with age. While I'm not a fan of Christian Bale as a person, I am truly awed at his acting ability. Joel Edgerton as the antagonist also does a fine job of showing the conflict within himself of having to deal with his "brother's" new- found God and people. I loved him in Warrior and he does a great job here, as well.Unlikely TV personality turned silver screener Aaron Paul shows that he can actually do something outside of Jessie from Breaking Bad and was much better than I expected, albeit not perfect.John Turturro, Ben Kingsley & Siqourney Weaver also have roles and each do a fantastic job with the material they were given. Sadly Ms. Weaver did not get near enough screen time and I sincerely hope there are many deleted scenes on the DVD/Blu-Ray that involve her.In conclusion, Exodus: Gods and Kings is a great movie with a good story, great actors and superb direction. The CG is top rate with some real breathtaking scenes showing what civilization may have looked like 4000+ years ago. Just be warned, the story has been changed to reflect miracles in a different, more palatable light. Go in with an open mind and not an open Bible and you will enjoy yourself immensely.*This review is of the NON-3D version of the film. I felt adding 3D to an historic account may have taken me out of the movie so I chose to see it in normal format. However, from what I'm hearing from others, I may have made the wrong choice. Either way, I am very pleased with my experience and would gladly recommend Exodus to others.
What are all those negative reviews?? It's an epic! I recommend watching it, as the first Pharaonic modern movie since a long time ago. Sure it could have been better, and of course it has some big historical mistakes and miss-confused some religions thoughts, but come on! it's an action, adventure and drama 150 minutes movie.. So grow up and ignore the newbie IMDb negative comments, I give it 7.5/10 .. and may be 8 for Christian Bale & Ridley Scott. I will keep it on my DVDs lists. And yes, Egypt banned the film and the committee of archaeologists agreed with the decision to ban <more>
the film because it showed "a false and wrong mental image of Egypt's history,". However it's never been said that it's a historical real story!
A good retelling of the old Testament for new age viewers (by vastusingh)
This movie retells the same story of Moses from Old Testament but with good visuals and a more realistic approach. I liked the great visuals and the pace of the movie. Although the screenplay and the acting/character development was not as strong as it could have been. Also there were only two characters that the story explored making the first half a little tedious.I went to watch this movie with little to no expectations and I had already seen The Ten Commandments and The Prince of Egypt. This turned out to be be good entertainment but nothing spectacular. Although I will again say that the <more>
realistic portrayal of the events made the move altogether more enjoyable.
