A retelling of the bible story. Pharaoh Ramses decrees the death of all Hebrew children, but Moses, placed in a basket in the Nile by his mother, is taken by a royal princess and raised as the brother of the heir to the throne of Egypt, Memefta. Moses is called by God to lead his people from Egypt to the promised land. A very reluctant prophet, feeling unworthy of the call, Moses accepts the task. After a series of plagues Memefta agrees to let the Hebrews go. With second thoughts, he pursues them to annihilation of his army in the parting of the Red Sea. Starvation is averted by manna from heaven, the ten commandments are given the people through Moses, they go astray with worship of the golden calf. Forty years of wandering in the wilderness, until finally they reach what will be their home (which Moses lives to see but not to enter). Written by

I found the movie inaccurate. I don't agree with is twisting parts that are actually in the bible to make them more dramatic or interesting or making things up that were never mentioned in the original story (The Bible). The description of Moses and his character are horrible. This is more of a fictional script than a movie based on a bible story. It seems like the director just add and subtracted whatever he wanted. If you are going to do that, then don't advertise this movie as a story based on the bible! Maybe he should read that story from the bible and compare it to his disgraceful movie. Here are some examples from the movie that are not accurate: 1. The movie states that the Hebrew that Moses rescued from the Egyptian (when he killed the Egyptian) was Aaron, his brother. Such a thing is not mentioned in the bible, and in my opinion if that was the case, and Moses truly saved his own brother, it would've been mentioned. (Exodus 2:11-12) 2. Also, I really didn't not like the scene when Moses goes back to his father in law Jethro and tells him about what happened, that is not mentioned in the bible at all. The bible states that he went to his father in law and asked him to leave to Egypt. (Exodus 4:18) and the whole story of Moses telling his father in law his life story, of how he cant find a God, and he had two mothers, and he is a murderer is just doesn't seem appropriate. Jethro did not push Moses to go to Egypt. Moses had faith! He heard from God and he went to his father in law and plainly asked him to leave. He was not being a baby about it! And he definitely was not questioning whether it was God or not and mocking the signs that God gave him by throwing his rode on the floor in front of Jethro and testing God!
I wont give you any more examples because honestly I turned the movie off after 43 minutes of watching it. Anyone who knows the bible will find this movie offensive. It's a joke.
