I won’t lead a mass exodus of people toward this movie but it was pretty good. I expected this to be a lot worse after seeing Noah, but I was pleasantly surprised. The costumes and sets were amazing and some of the acting was quite good. I felt it was kind of strange to see Christian Bale as Moses and Joel Edgerton as Pharaoh Ramses. I was even more shocked to see Sigourney Weaver as an Egyptian (couldn’t see that coming in her career). Sadly, I’ve seen this story before, although it was well done, nothing in the plot surprised me because I already knew just about everything about it. It’s always nice to have a refresher on a great Biblical story but I’m not exactly sure why this film was made. I guess I have to give Ridley Scott some credit for not really being offensive like the movie Noah was handled.
