Egyptian Princes Moses (Christian Bale) and Ramses (Joel Edgerton) are raised together as brothers. When Ramses becomes pharaoh, Moses is his most-trusted adviser. However Moses soon discovers his Hebrew parentage, and Ramses banishes him to the desert — often a death sentence. But God has a mission for Moses: Free the Israelites from slavery. Moses returns from exile and demands that Ramses let his people go, but the arrogant ruler is unmoved, leading to a battle of divine wills.
- Great acting by the whole cast . Christian Bale did an amazing job with his portrayal of Moses .
- An excellent job was done making the plagues look realistic and devastating .
- Some important moments in the actual bible story were not shown in the movie .
Rhamses: You sleep well because you know that you’re loved. I’ve never sleep that well.
Moses: Follow me and you will be free. Stay and you will perish.
The bible story of Moses is brought to the big screen in this adaptation . This movie has been criticized for its many for historical inaccuracies , but i chose to watch it as it was and not keep referring to the bible story. As a stand alone movie it is very good . It has a compelling storyline that will touch your heart . The brother-like relationship between Rhamses and Moses was nicely developed . Gods wrath on the Egyptian with the plagues was shown expertly .
The inaccuracies can actually be looked at as a good thing , because it will cause more people to go back to their bibles to find out what really happened .
