Storyline

Biblical epic Exodus: Gods and Kings stars Christian Bale as Moses who, as the film opens, fights alongside his brother Ramses (a shaved-headed Joel Edgerton), to help defend Egypt, which is ruled by their father, Seti (John Turturro). During battle, Moses saves Ramses life, causing Ramses to fear that his brother will one day be King because it fits with a prophecy handed down by one of Seti's trusted spiritualists. Soon after Seti's death, Moses, who is actually Jewish and not Egyptian, is banished. However, he becomes the leader of the Jewish people and leads a rebellion, with the help of a wrathful God, against that Egyptians..

Trivia

As with many other depictions of the Exodus, the Pharaoh of the Exodus is identified as Rameses II. Although Rameses II was certainly not the Pharaoh of the Exodus, due to irreconcilable differences between the history of his reign and the Exodus, he is one of the more popular choices in media depictions. This is because, barring Tutankhamun, Rameses II is likely the most recognizable and famous Pharaoh of Ancient Egypt (not least due to previous depictions of him as the Pharaoh of the Exodus), with a reputation as one of the strongest and most successful Pharaohs of all time. These traits make him a challenging adversary to Moses and the Hebrews, and allow for an engaging story. See more »

Goofs

Instead of the blue battle crown, Ramses seems to wear a queen's vulture crown and instead of the double crown (Pschent, white and red) for coronation, he seems to wears a cylinder. 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.

Terrible Schlock
9 December 2014 | by SegarrSee all my reviews

I went into this film with an open mind. I have enjoyed Ridley Scott movies in the past, particularly Gladiator which is the same genre of film as this. Unfortunately, I was left feeling extremely disappointed. Although this is a classic, biblical story that most movie-goers are likely already familiar with, the film-makers have decided to pad this ancient tale with over-the-top action scenes, as well as one-note characters that feel more like cardboard cut-outs as opposed to actual human beings. The most shameful aspect of the film is the part that I was most looking forward to : The Actual Plague. While I was hoping to see harrowing images of Egypt being decimated in a genuinely frightening tale, we are instead bombarded with fake looking CGI that simply left me dry. The plague feels more like a computer montage than an actual scary event.Terrible script. Weak performances. An over-reliance on CGI instead of CHARACTERS and STORY! Overall, just a bad film. Didn't help that they chose big named actors instead of people that looked more like Ancient Egyptians. Pass.
