People are doing traditional-style reviews all over the web, so we decided to try something different. In each “breakdown” we’ll take a look at what a film’s marketing led us to believe, how the movie actually played, and then what we learned from it all. Read on!
Ridley Scott tells the tale of Moses.
Exodus: Gods And Kings (or as I like to call it, Moses Rises) is a mess of a film. Ridley Scott succeeds at delivering a visual spectacle, but he falls flat with everything else – the pacing is clunky and tedious, the casting doesn’t feel right (who the hell hired John Turturro to portray a Pharaoh?) and the story itself just isn’t told in an interesting or entertaining way. How disappointing. I advise that you skip it.
Nice try, I guess.
