Exodus: Gods and Kings
Exodus: Gods and Kings completely belittles its reluctant hero and makes him nothing more than a raving mad bystander instead of the obedient instrument of God’s just rule. On top of that, the once powerful God is whittled down to a spoiled child who is arrogant and prone to venomous temper tantrums. The supernatural plagues found in the scriptures are reduced to natural disasters for the most part, easily explained away by convenient scientific theory. When it’s all said and done, the entire production is nothing more than a soulless and humanistic attempt at rehashing Cecil B. DeMille’s original masterpiece The Ten Commandments.
