Bryan Lienesch69 - At the end of the day, 'Exodus' is what we should've expected it to be all along. The special affects are marvelous, the battles are of epic proportions, and most of everything else falls flat. Were we ever supposed to seriously buy John Turturro as a pharoah?

Le Anne of Tinsel And Tine20.6 - I'm sure Scott, Christian Bale (as Moses) and the studios behind this 140 million dollar mammoth undertaking felt they could bring something new and powerful to this biblical story, particularly in light of today's technology. Unfortunately, Bale can't fill Heston's sandals, Joel Edgerton can't steer Yul Brenner's chariot, and as visually impressive as the scenes with swarms of flies, bloody seas, hordes of frogs and plagues of locusts may be... there's just no spirit to Exodus: Gods and Kings, no glue, no form and no consistency in casting, I understand Scott's loyalty to Alien lead Sigourney Weaver, but her cameo as the Pharaoh's mother just looked odd.
