Goofs

The Great Sphinx of Giza appears in one scene, looking very much like it does today. However at the time of Moses the Sphinx would likely have still had its nose, although we do not know when exactly it was lost. While the common story about Napoleon's soldiers using the Sphinx as a target for shooting practice (thus breaking off its nose) is proved to be untrue, there is no proof as to when the Sphinx lost its nose. There is a story about a ruler damaging the Sphinx in the 14th century, but the historian mentioning it also mentions the destruction of the ears (which clearly did not happen, therefore casting doubt on the whole story). The only thing we know for a fact is that the nose was gone by 1737 when British artist and marine architect Norden sketched the Sphinx without its nose. See more »

Quotes

Hegep: Let me tell you something about about Hebrews. They are a conniving, combative people. Do you know what 'Israelite' means in their own language? 'He who fights with God.'
Moses: 'He who wrestles with God.' There is a difference.

Ridley. You are no Mel Gibson!
8 December 2014 | by (Bangkok, Thailand.) – See all my reviews

What a waste of my time and money this movie was. Just feels wrong from start to finish. A fake epic devoid of any real emotions and soul.

Wish Mr. Scott has the courage someone like Mel Gibson had when he made this movie. Passion Of The Christ & Apocalypto are prime examples of a director willing to risk everything for what he believes in(even if you disagree with it). And after watching this film. I can safely say Ridley only believes in money.

Moses & Ramesses should've been played by middle eastern actors. Christian Bale should've played Moses' brother Aaron(according to old scriptures, he did most of the talking for Moses). While John Turturro & Sigourney Weaver casting was just plain wrong!

The story has been told so many times and it would've been much better if Ridley told the story of the Hebrews after leaving Egypt. Their 40- year Sinai plight for example. Started the film with the plagues & the Red Sea parting, then took off from there to show us events not many know of.

Don't waste your money on this. Wait for the director's cut then rent it. Maybe Mr. Scott can save this from the $4.99 shelf.
