Epic adventure Exodus: Gods and Kings is the story of one man's daring courage to take on the might of an empire. Using state of the art visual effects and 3D immersion, Scott brings new life to the story of the defiant leader Moses as he rises up against the Egyptian Pharaoh Ramses, setting 600,000 slaves on a monumental journey of escape from Egypt and its terrifying cycle of deadly plagues.

The casting of European actors may not be as historically inaccurate as some have claimed. Northern Africa is separated from the rest of the continent by the Sahara Desert. As a result, those nations have more in common culturally with the Middle East and Europe than with Africa. One early race of Pharaohs was the Hyksos who, like the Jews, were a Semitic people. The Ptolemaic line of Pharoahs, which included Cleopatra, were of Macedonian descent. Both regions have inhabitants noted for their lightness of skin. See more »

Exodus: Gods and Kings is a stunning biblical epic with beautiful A-list stars. The grand shots with seamless CGI are the best visual recreation to date of the sheer magnitude of the exodus. Scott artfully brings to life an ancient world that is beautiful to watch. Unfortunately good looks, great actors and a big budget don't equate to a great movie in this case. Christian Bale and the entire cast's excellent performances were overshadowed by the poor casting choices to hire them. The all-white lead cast and betrayal of the biblical tale can be brushed off as Hollywood child-play. However, the unbelievable characters, flimsy dialog and exhausting monotonous tension plagued Exodus. The film is visually beautiful; but unfortunately not much else.
