Exodus: Gods And Kings Review

A visual splendour set in 1300 BC, "Exodus: Gods and Kings" is the biblical tale of Moses, the adopted son of the Pharaoh who was raised as an Egyptian prince and later turned into a prophet, religious leader and a lawgiver. He figures prominently in the Jewish, Christian and Islamic scriptures.

This often heard story had earlier hit the marquee in 1956 as Cecil B. DeMille's "The Ten Commandments". But unlike the earlier edition, director Ridley Scott's version is narrated in a pragmatic way, where Moses, a cool, eloquent man of reason is wrapped in conflict and complexities, and whose relationship with god is complicated to say the least.

The narration here does not start from Moses' birth, but plunges directly into the dramatic setting with Moses as an adult, garnering brownie points with Pharaoh Seti.
