Swords and sandals, giant armies on horseback clashing, and fire and brimstone falling from the skies? How much more epic can you get? This looks like a return to the Ridley Scott of “Gladiator” and “Kingdom of Heaven.” I have no idea how much the movie plays up the Bible, or if it’s one of those “gritty” revisionist takes. Who cares, really. Check it out, it’s Christian Bale and Joel Edgerton trying to cut off each other’s heads with swords!
I think at one point a reddish looking sea is even involved?
From acclaimed director Ridley Scott (Gladiator, Prometheus) comes the epic adventure “Exodus: Gods and Kings,” the story of one man’s daring courage to take on the might of an empire. Using state of the art visual effects and 3D immersion, Scott brings new life to the story of the defiant leader Moses (Christian Bale) as he rises up against the Egyptian Pharaoh Ramses (Joel Edgerton), setting 600,000 slaves on a monumental journey of escape from Egypt and its terrifying cycle of deadly plagues.
Starring Christian Bale, Joel Edgerton, Aaron Paul, John Turturro, Sigourney Weaver, and Ben Kingsley.
Parting cinemas this December 12th.
