Blu-ray Review: Exodus: Gods and Kings | Cinematically Enigmatic

CE: The story of how Moses led Egypt's Hebrew population out of slavery and into the promised land was most famously brought to life in Cecil B. DeMille's The Ten Commandments. Now, nearly sixty years later, it's director Ridley Scott's turn to bring the epic story of Moses to the big screen in Exodus: Gods and Kings. Starring Christian Bale as Moses and Joel Edgerton as Ramses, the film follows in the footsteps of another big budget Biblical epic, Darren Aronofsky's Noah. But unlike that movie, Scott's take on the Book of Exodus feels less rooted in fantasy, instead playing more like a historical epic in the vein of Gladiator or Kingdom of Heaven. It's far from perfect though. Heavy on spectacle but light on drama, Exodus: Gods and Kings isn't one of the director's most indelible works. However, it still merits viewing, especially on Blu-ray.
