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.Written by

Gods and Kings was also the name of another Moses film that was once in development under the direction of Steven Spielberg. See more »
Although the movie was criticized for white-washing, Ancient Egyptians were not ethnically similar to modern Sub-Saharan Africans. Their genetic make-up was more similar to Semitic, Turkish, and European populations. Specifically Ramses II was a white red-head, as were half of his close family. (see Ramses II's mummy, his family's mummies, which still exist, and the latest DNA studies on Ancient Egyptian demographics). See more »
Where have you been?
Watching you fail.
Wars of attrition take time.
At this rate, it will take years. A generation.
I am prepared to fight for that long.
I thought we were making progress. Now you're impatient after 400 years of slavery.
Am I the only one sitting here who's done nothing about it until now?
I do know a few things about military action. Still, if you are not going to listen to me, then why did you take me away from my family?
I didn't. You did.

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.
