Here’s my one sentence review — Exodus: Gods and Kings was better than expected, and less weird than Noah.
(Despite the weirdness, I liked Noah. In terms of the main point of Genesis 6-9 — God’s judgment on human violence — it was more true to the text than most of the crap we feed our children about Noah’s ark, and I’m not just talking about “twosies, twosies.” But I digress.)
Before going to see Exodus (released December 12, 2014), I decided to check out RottenTomatoes.com. The film was at 28%. Not good. We decided to go anyway, but with expectations sufficiently lowered.
If you’re interesting in film-making artistry, I will let you read other reviews. As a Bible guy, I will address two questions.
