Just saw Exodus, very disappointing, we couldn't even get a parting-of-the-Red-Sea, instead we got a tsunami - with today's technology it wasn't an inspiring "burning bush" - and the "Voice" of God? Well, you'll know what I mean if you see this average movie and not exactly a "loving" God when you hear what comes out of His mouth, you really wouldn't want to upset, Him - several areas were a disappointment, the lack of spectacle, the lack of "star" power, average script, pedestrian story - how can they get away with this considering the talent at their disposal - Spectacle, remember Charlton Heston parting the Red Sea? The chariot race in Ben Hur? The mother ship in Encounters of the Third Kind? The destruction of iconic buildings in Independence Day? James Cameron's Titanic when it began to sink? - this Exodus is devoid of such - while Christian Bale was okay as Moses, my fellow Australian Joel Edgerton wasn't up to it as Ramses - remember the screen power of Charlton Heston and Yul Brynner , especially when they were on the screen together - they really don't make them like they used, to, but why not? - the writing was disappointing, so many holes in the story and so many missed opportunities at foreshadowing, like the two soldiers sent to assassinate Moses came out of nowhere, though explained later, very poor writing - Moses is an old man when the film ends, it doesn't explain why, but unless you know the tale, you wouldn't have thought it would take "that" long to make it to the Promise Land - I don't think this will have good word-of-mouth and Hollywood disappoints once more - as always, it's only an opinion, somebody will love it.
