To prepare for his role as Moses, Christian Bale quickly surpassed Sunday school basics and delved into scripture and literary works. He read the first five books of the Bible, the Quran, as well as Louis Ginzberg's classic, "Legends of the Jews" and Jonathan Kirsch's "Moses, A Life." See more »
The film shows Jews building pyramids. The last pyramid was built for Ahmose I ca 1525 BCE. The Jews didn't arrive in Egypt until the mid-1200's BCE if Ramses II was actually the pharaoh of the Exodus. See more »

In the battle a leader will be saved, and his savior will someday lead.
Then the entrails should also say that we will abandon reason and be guided by omens.

I could not believe how bad it would be. It really was an imaginary tale about a fictitious Moses and Ramses. It departed so far from the Exodus Biblical text that it did not deserve the title. Anachronistic in ideas and attitudes - eg, having Pharaoh discussing his decisions almost democratically!! Moses had more than one wife in reality, but Sarah didn't get a look in in the movie. The Pharaoh character was weak, and the distortion of Moses' relationship with God was idiotic - making God out to be an unwise brat. The miracles were watered down to try and make them look like natural events, but much was missing. No pillar of fire or smoke, no staff, no passover meal, no gold given to the Jews as they were leaving, etc etc. This was much worse than the recent Noah movie.
