Review: Exodus, God and Kings

We have seen this movie every Easter on TV and it was made in 1956 and it was called The Ten Commandments. This is essentially the same movie with some of the differences being God coming to Moses as a young boy, rather than talking to him through a burning bush, etc.

There is nothing unique enough or worth while enough to have made this movie or to go see it. It was slow in parts and too long, almost 2 1/2 hours.

The end of the movie was also a little disappointing when the director decided to not show the actual parting of the Red Sea, as it was more of a receding of the Red Sea instead. After this the water came back through tornadoes and some other special effects which were good, but not good enough to make up for the rest of the movie.

I cannot recommend this movie.
