Review:

Exodus: Gods and Kings is an epic retelling of the Biblical story of Moses liberating the Jewish slaves from the Egyptian evil pharaohs. There’s bunches of repulsive violence, especially in the delineation of the seven plagues, with dreadful measures of death, blood, turmoil, destruction, and terror. Dead animals and children are seen. There’s also loads of hangings, fighting, slaves being whipped, and an unnerving tsunami.

The movie shouts to life in the big moments, having some energy and ambition missing from the rest of the movie. The special effects are very well done and the production design is also outstanding. Even though this is a biblical, classic story that most of the movie-fanatics might already are familiar with, but the film-makers have decided to pack this ancient tale with overemotional action scenes.

Teens who are interested about seeing a Biblical epic may be influenced by the movies action, and Moses’ story is still there – and still worth telling and debating, despite the fact that he’s not depicted as an honourable legend.
