Full Movie Reviews

Ridley Scott remains one of the best visual directors in the business but at this rate, he's at risk becoming the rich man's Michael Bay if he keeps on making good looking movies instead of films that are actually good. I actually liked Exodus: Gods and Kings better than I thought-especially after all the bad reviews-but the most shared criticism rings true here: It's comparatively hollow despite cranking up the spectacle and the histrionic acting. Everything's on autopilot and as wildly divergent as the script is from the traditiional story of Moses in the bible, it's surprisingly slow and sometimes even boring.
That much negativity being expressed already, I liked the action, the visuals, and thought the two lead performances from Christian Bale and Joel Edgerton were fine. Their …

a bigish movie based on the tale of moses
.at first when this started i thought it might be poor but its got better i got into it in the end. i think the critics might be being a little to harsh. though it is a big story to tell and if your going to do it you best do it well, and so i guess for that reason they are harsh as yes its not a great movie. but hey ive seen much worst.
my main gripe is arron paul is hardly in this. and christian bale who i think is one of the best actors working starts of a little out of place as moses but he wins me over by the end. but a better story and a better director would of helped.
scott for me is so over rated as a director who has a big attitude to match. all in all its nowhere near a great movie but its really not that bad. its ok/ish, worth …

“Follow me and you will be free. Stay and you will perish.”
I have a feeling that the Catholic Church has done quite a bit of lobbying in Hollywood, after noticing that their fanbase started to dwindle. First there was the biblical story "Noah" with the famous boat builder who started constructing a huge ark, insisted by "The guy upstairs", just so he and his family could withstand the announced tidal wave together with a pair of every animal species. And now they even convinced Ridley Scott to make a film of the incomparable epic story of Moses who guided his people through the desert to absolute freedom (It's clear he hasn't pointed out the right place, because they still haven't found the right spot). Ultimately, this film won't convert me (it didn't appeal to me either), but I …

Oh Ridley Scott why?. Why do you always keep doing this. I know you're a great director, you proved that back in your gold age of films, but now you make such forgettable and mostly terrible films like: Hannibal, Robin Hood, The Counselor and now this.
The story is about a Moses as he rises up against the Egyptian Pharaoh Ramses, setting 600,000 slaves on a monumental journey of escape from Egypt and its terrifying cycle of deadly plagues.
Judging by the trailers of this film I was pretty excited for the movie, because it looks exciting, epic and looks like a lot of fun.
Until I sawed the reviews for the film and on RT it had 2.8% and on Metacritic it had about 5.2% and let me just I was really disappointed from hearing that, I thought Ridley Scott finally got his mo jo back …

One of the defining aspects of the 2014 cinematic year has been the relative success of films targeting major religious groups, specifically Christians. Sure the trend has died off in the later half of the year (and I expect today’s subject to be no different,) but before summer even hit we had Noah open to over 40 million, Son of God make 60 million despite being made out of footage from an already aired TV series, and Heaven is for Real make over eight times it’s production budget. Exodus: Gods and Kings is, at least to some extent, trying to profit off of this same trend in the box office; but I seriously doubt that this movie has the God power to please religious audiences or the entertainment value to please anybody else.
The attempt here is to try and wrangle the church …
