Gustavo Razera's rating of the film Exodus: Gods and Kings

More a realistic-looking war epic than a Biblical fantasy crowd-pleaser - and all the better for it. Breathtaking in scope and action, and surprisingly precise in its characterizations, despite whatever ethnically dubious casting choices. Scott's expertise in the machinery of the genre reaches its pinnacle, as does his natural talent for world building. The God-child is a stroke of genius.
