New Exodus,Gods And Kings Movie Delivered Great Action But Skimped On Special Effects

20th Century released their new action/Bible flick, “Exodus: Gods and Kings,” into theaters this weekend. I just checked it out and thought it was very entertaining, but I was disappointed with how they skimped out on the special effects and really sort of just skimmed through a lot of the important parts of the story. But still it was an interesting take. The movie stars: John Turturro, Christian Bale, Sigourney Weaver, Ben Kingsley, Joel Edgerton, and Aaron Paul.

In the new flick, the plotline started off when Moses was already fully grown and a prince in Egypt alongside Ramses. It goes through the motions of how Moses eventually started talking with the Hebrews and discovered that he was actually born a Hebrew,and then later, was exiled from Egypt after Ramses found out about it.

From there, they showed how Moses fought off an assassination attempt while alone out in the middle of nowhere. Then he eventually met his wife before getting called by God to deliver the Hebrews out of the clutches of Egypt and 400 years of slavery. Read more »
