HKFanatic's rating of the film Exodus: Gods and Kings

To his credit, I don't think Ridley Scott has made a truly uninteresting film since 2010's "Robin Hood," but "Exodus" comes awfully close. The fact that this opens with a PG-13 battle sequence and not the iconic image of baby Moses floating down the Nile in a basket (the entire raison d'etre and basis for this story) lets you know where Scott's priorities are. A Biblical epic that won't even please the faithful.
