Exodus: Gods and Kings

Ridley Scott Reino Unido, 2014

J. O.'s rating of the film Exodus: Dioses y reyes

As expected, the scale is enormous and the design is lavish and beautiful. Some key performances were powerful, while the high-profile cameos are downright lame. Some of the effects felt rushed, but in general were quite the spectacle - the plagues, in particular. The negativity surrounding this is a bandwagon I will not hop onto. This was an ambitious throwback to classic mythological epics, and it was enjoyable.
