The release of Ridley Scott's Exodus: Gods and Kings prompted a revisiting to this gem. Though rendered a little annoying by Hollywood over-indulgence (especially in the soundtrack), this is truly a wonderful film that stands the test of time. Overflowing with beautiful artwork, great musical numbers, and a thrilling climax. Worth re-watching.
First time seeing this; and I have to say that I'm impressed. There is some really powerful imagery throughout this, the cast is stellar, and the score is fantastic; I'm tempted to take another star off though because the head/neck proportions of the characters threw me off.
