Did they even read the Bible from Genesis to Exodus???? From the moment Moses saw the burning bush God related and told Moses EXACTLY what He wanted Moses to do and to bring Israel back to this holy mountain- Sinai. God also told Him the wonders God would perform to get Pharaoh to set Israel free.It was a lengthy conversation with God & Moses. Moses knew the Plan of God for Israel. The parting of the sea was all wrong as well. They walked over DRY land, not rocky or muddy. They left out the whole important message of the Passover lamb as well. It started out good, but as it went on I lost interest and threw it away. I paid $5.00 for it and Charlton Heston's was even 100% the best yet
I liked this movie. As stated, it does have a lot of depth. The filming - location and setting were excellent. The production was well done. Dougray Scott did an exceptional job in the role of Moses. There was a variety of emotion and depth to the character. I think I had never considered some of the struggles that Moses may have had in his faith. The viewer can sense his frustration with the Israelites and their rebellion against God. Other than the make-up (Moses didn't age very well in this movie), I find it a very acceptable movie.
When I had to send my son out of the room while watching what is supposed to be a Bible based movie, I decided enough was enough and turned it off. Between the graphic violence and the too oft reference to sleeping with someone they weren't married to and the scenes that were added for drama rather than accuracy, I cannot recommend this to anyone.
SUPERB! Everything about this film was excellent. Dougray Scott "was" Moses,he is so believable with a range of emotions. This was an epic production and very impressive visuals. The supporting cast are all believable also. You can really become immersed in this story and understand more fully the experience in Exodus. This is the DVD that you want to share with many people and to keep handy as a classic. Don't let the price throw you off, it is NOT low-budget in any way, but I am greatfull to have saved on my purchase.
