‘Exodus: Gods and Kings’ (2015)

From acclaimed director Ridley Scott comes this epic adventure; the story of one man’s daring courage to take on the might of an empire.   In ‘Exodus: God’s and Kings’, Scott bring new life to the story of the defiant leader Moses (Christian Bale) as he rises up against the Egyptian Pharaoh Ramses (Joel Edgerton), setting 400,000 slaves on a monumental journey of escape from Egypt and its terrifying cycle of deadly plagues. Also starring John Turturro, Sigourney Weaver and Ben Kingsley, the film uses special effects with great impact: resulting in sweeping shots of the pyramids, an impressive parting of the Red Sea, and battle scenes. Whilst not necessarily a faithful adaptation of events as described in the Bible, the film is nevertheless an enjoyable interpretation of this significant period in history.
