After watching Noah I can’t say I’m really excited for another retelling of a biblical story, however that’s exactly what Exodus: Gods and Kings does. It is the story of Moses, played by Christian Bale, and the parting of the read sea.
Exodus: Gods and Kings does have some good things going for it, Christian Bale being one of them. Another is director Ridley Scott. The trailer also shows what looks like a really beautiful movie. Check it out:
Will Exodus: Gods and Kings be in your to-watch list?
As a movie, I think Exodus could be amazing, but as a biblical story, I'm worried. I don't like this current trend to take religious stories and embellish them. This goes for any faith. If this movie had been reworked to only be similar to the story of Moses, I would have likely been all over it. Now, I don't know.
