Excerpt: Ridley Scott vuelve a tomar el tema del héroe, esta vez desde una perspectiva bíblica, en la que Christian Bale se lleva la mejor parte de una historia que no logra concretar todas sus promesas.
Excerpt: Director Ridley Scott (“Blade Runner,” “Prometheus”) has taken on ancient epics with “Gladiator” and “Kingdom of Heaven,” but his take on Moses leading the chosen people out of Egypt is riddled with weird inaccuracies, a Pharaoh sporting an Australian accent and a running time that feels excessive while the story itself feels truncated.
Excerpt: Exodus tiene momentos tan buenos, y el empaque visual es tan espectacular, que esos elementos casi compensan el guión tan malo que tiene. Son impresionantes, elegantes y muy originales la batalla del principio, las plagas y el mar Rojo (Roland Emmerich debe de estar rabiando de envidia); y la recreación del antiguo Egipto, a la que Scott le saca muy buen partido, es maravillosa.
Excerpt: “Exodus: Gods and Kings” is an exhilarating epic with both eye-filling spectacle and some genuinely interesting observations on the relationship between man and God. It’s never really as much fun as “The Ten Commandments,” but Scott has made a movie to be reckoned with.
Excerpt: Meeting, but rarely exceeding, expectations, Ridley Scott’s grand retelling of Moses and the Hebrews’ flight from Egypt is strong on visuals and A-list presence, but slight on narrative and characterisation. Christian Bale and Joel Egerton both put in fine performances as Moses and Rameses, while the rest of the big-name cast gets lost amidst a CG-heavy blizzard of battles, plagues, revolts and muddled imagery.
Excerpt: Moses no longer parts the Red Sea; he leads the Jews across it during low tide in Ridley Scott’s Exodus: Gods and Kings, a misguided take on the Old Testament that succeeds in de-mythologizing the biblical story of Moses into something more vaguely “believable”, but loses everything that was interesting about it in the process.
